Granny Square Blanket…..

My neighbor in MI told me that a sister bought a new house which has items from the owner who passed away.  She said to go to the garage and see if you would like any of the items because she didn’t plan on keeping anything.  I went with my husband and while I was looking I found a very large orange and cream granny square blanket.  In my mind I know the labor that can take a person to make such a large blanket and against my husbands wishes I brought it home.  Put it in my washing machine and added some good smelling fabric softener.  The blanket came out beautiful, not only that, everyone wants it because it is sooo warm.  I counted the squares and there are 100, each sewn together by hand.  Its huge, big enough for a queen size bed.  I can really appreciate it.  It probably would have landed in the garbage because some people don’t understand the time it takes to make a blanket like this.  Here is a pic.
