Squares and Giveaway

I just wanted to share this giveaway with you.  Susanne's Blog is giving a new year's bundle to her followers.  Check it out.

As for my special Granny Square project, some more progress has been made and hope to make more this weekend.  I edged it with a pale lavender colour.  I think I will have to block it again to get the edges straight.  Flowers are being made for this project as well.  I'm hoping to get a few varieties done in these fun happy colours.

I also finished a shrug I only started early September.  I had already made one with a green tone in Homespun yarn but wanted a white, neutral one.  I improvised on the design as the first one I found I wanted longer sleeves for more warmth as well as extended length on the back.  
Original green shrug

I hope everyone has a good weekend and enjoys the mild weather here in the Easter time Zone.

It's a shell stitch. DC ch 1 DC all in same stitch. I believe the pattern is from Lion Brand site.
