Shhhhhhh...Bunny Rose Blanket

Can you keep a secret?
Oh good!
I'm going to surprise Bunny Rose with her very own
Mini Granny Rose Afghan.
 It's finished but I want to wait to give it to her once I have made a coordinating pillow. 
I used the granny rose pattern from here,
but crocheted only two rounds for the rose instead of three.

The blanket is 4 squares by 7 squares = 28 squares.
(Afghans fold better if you use an even number of rows - I forgot this time.)
The border is one row of hdc in white, and just a simple shell border in meadow,
 but the pattern comes with a picot border that would be cute too!
(All yarn is Stylecraft Special DK stash. :-) )

All folded up and ready to give
(Once the pillow is done, that is.)
I'm so excited!
I'll take photographs of the gift giving and share with you.:-)

    these lovely makes are in my head (which is full to the brim) and not in reality, just don't have the bloomin' time
    I adore your work/artistry (mm too gushy?)
