grannies and butterflies

I'm thinking of making a blanket for a little girl and plan to have colour patches of granny squares, and make some butterflies. A crochet edging of the paler pink, and the back is covered with larger squares.
I made one of these a few years ago and it was loved.

Noticing other crafters have baskets to keep their work in, I remembered this.

Evening lighting is never as good as daylight here; 64 squares begin.

So near the end now, butterflies this evening, and twelve more big squares. it's 12 days old now, and in time for the late summer holiday, perhaps i'll have it finished by next week.  

the butterflies are tied with laces
made from crochet chains and they fly!
