Well .. I finished one motif and to be honest I don't like this one at all. It's definitely pretty but it's too light and airy for me. I want an afghan with substance that feels warm and heavy when your cold and need to snuggle.
I'm going to go back to one of the other, heavier clues and repeat that. Frogging my first one ..
Loving all the colours that everyone's posting. Gorgeous work."
I agree MzMolly, this looks like nice doily or shawl pattern or something, but I would like the same kind of afghan that you are thinking about, that at least feels warm. I tried bulking up the middle of this clue 6 a little with the solarium afghan idea with the petals and will see how that goes. Everyone's does look very pretty though. But the problem is, which other clue are you going back too, they are all light and airy. I have made two motifs that I posted under the vintage octagon pattern, the bed of roses afghan (or something like that). Now that is HEAVY! It incorporates many of the same motifs that are in this CAL and it is so much heavier, I don't think it would fit well with this mystery afghan.
