An Afghan for Baby Madison


Friends from work are expecting their first baby in late January, so we are all throwing them a baby shower in December right before Christmas break. Since they are doing Baby Madison's room in lady bugs, I thought this Lion Brand Yarn in Homespun was the perfect color combo to go with the lady bug motif.





I especially love how the edging came out in such sharp contrast. Makes the scallop sweeter somehow. 

Hope all your Christmas crafting is going smoothly. 
Have a happy day!
