Granny Squares!

About thirty years ago, I made this little Granny Square blanket and put it in my Glory Box.
I eventually got to use it when I had the boys.
You didn't know I could crochet, did you!
Thirty years later, I have made some more Granny Squares! 
I've just got to piece the backing and 
then it's off to be quilted.

There must be something about being pregnant that makes us crochet, it's the only time I finished a blanket. Love your modern granny squares, very pretty.
