The first afghan was way too beautiful to resist. It features a stunning cross-stitched floral pattern that I absolutely fell in love with on first sight. Strangely enough it is a perfect compliment to another afghan in my collection (gifted by my husband's great-aunt), that also has cross-stitched flowers.
The second afghan is this ivory knitted gem that appears unused. Even without the cross-stitched details of the first, this piece has a beautiful textured pattern.
