My Latest Project

This is my latest project, still in the works as you can see I must add 2 more rows of squares, then do a border,I started this when I sprained my ankle in the fall, I had no choice I could not move from my bed and I had all this wonderful wool intending to start this project, but like everyone else I procrastinate a lot ,and seriously needed to keep my fingers busy in bed ,I added quite a few too when Mom was in the hospital and I needed to stay beside her night and day.
This one is for my sweet Kelly ,she is my sunshine, the next one is for my son Jason,I am not sure if I should go white /grey /black for him or white/light blue/dark blue.... I will figure it out when I see the wool .I hope I remember how much wool I needed for this one.... I sorta guessed at the amount ...I have lots to do a nice border too in the rose color and beige.Each square took me about 3/4 hour.I am doing 12x12 rows. What do you think?? Is it pretty?? My husband thinks I am wonderfully talented, I love it when he says that to me, what a sweety !!
