Apple Blossom Dreams Afghan-Blog Anniversary

Eight years ago (with a couple of hiatuses)
I started blogging and crocheting under the name of
"Apple Blossom Dreams"
The name came from the street where we lived at that time:
"Apple Blossom Lane"
Dreams were created there for 20 years!!!

We no longer live on Apple Blossom Lane,
but the dreams remain.
In celebration of those dreams,
I have started a signature namesake afghan.

"The Apple Blossom Dreams Afghan "

I hope to have it finished before the apple trees bloom.
In 2019 or 2020???
It's crocheted with either Stylecraft Special DK or Scheepjes Colour Crafter.

The color inspiration:
The beautiful watercolor banner by my artist friend Juli.

I remember my daughter calling it "bucolic" 
and that continues to be my vision for the blog. 
(I did; however, have to look the word up in the dictionary. ;-)

Stay tuned for the updates.
