The Sweetpea Square . . . crafting with grandma!

Christmas is only three months away, so if you've been working on this afghan with your grandchildren, you're almost finished! I especially like the Sweetpea Square from the book, Blue Ribbon Afghans from America's State Fairs - this square goes together quickly and adds a nice look to the completed afghan!

Directions -

As you work on this square with your grandchildren lead them in praying for their parents . . . it is a wonderful habit for your grandchildren to take time to pray for the people they make things for!
