It has kept me motivated and has encouraged me to keep going when I know I would have stopped at the 1st sign of difficulty. I am equally greatful for the week break. I only have 1 motif and a bit left for clue 6. I started a few weeks later than others and thanks to the positive and excited comments on this forum decided I wanted to be a part of this fun. I have learned many things about crocheting and it feels good! I have decided that I would learn how to post here and I am determined to get pics up too! Now, back to my last motifs!
So nice to hear from you! So, you've been a silent participant all along. I wonder how many other silent crocheters and knitters there are? Would love to hear from all of you.

I'm also prepping for a colonoscopy tomorrow so I have that stuff to deal with today also. I am finding one motif has more stitches in it then the little square so I'm having to fudge it together a little bit. Don't remember which motif clue it was but it is just one that I need to fudge. I double checked it with the pattern also and it does have more stitches then the others. Made one mistake on first row but think I will be okay with it. I would unseam it but I can't find my end to undo it. So will make do with it.
Hope I like the finished afghan as I didn't lay it out due to no place other then the bed. And If I lay it out on the bed I may just crawl back into bed and go to sleep. Didn't sleep last night, stuff on the mind all night.

My sister and I have decided to place this CAL afghan on her coffin when she passes in lieu of a flower spray, thanks to a suggestion from our aunt. If you look back with my posts, the colors are my non-Waverly yarn which are totally my mother's colors. I will post a picture of the afghan when I get it completed. Thank you to all of the Bernat Forum members who have sent me encouraging messages and letting me know you are praying for us. All ya'll are the BEST!!

I still have a couple of clue 5 to finish and a couple of clue 6.
I'm not sure how this is going to look, but I'm going to go with it and go ahead with my plan to give it to my Mom for Mother's Day. I don't think anyone has ever made her anything like this. Usually it's a Grandma present to my kids, so I think that will be a nice surprise for her. (I hope!)
So, guess I have to go finish those motifs and start sewing, after I find my yarn needles. Had two really nice, big ones and I can't find them. I'm pretty sure "Not me" did something with them. (You know, where you ask your kids who did something and they all answer, "not me." - he causes lots of trouble in my house!)

Do you remember seeing the comics of "not me" in the Family Circus?
That's EXACTLY who runs rampant in my house!

When I start and finish the seaming is the proper way to tie them off just weaving in like you do a normal crotchet piece. Thanks for any help I am new at this and am not sure how to complete this blanket, but that is what this project has been about learning new things.
