I was beginning to think this would never happen.
So when it did, a few minutes ago, I had to come and post about it.
I just laid it and its plain but pretty edge on my king-size bed, to get an idea of the size.
I didn't even wait to cut off the yarn bits on the back.
Or to block down the wavy single crochet edges.
It's done, and you would not believe how happy I am to be able to say that!!!
Now it'll get a gentle blocking (those curly edges will straighten out like magic), then be folded up to wait for Mother's Day. Since it was supposed to be a Christmas present, it won't hurt it to wait a bit longer : D
