The Crochet Bug

How time flies! Been almost 2 weeks since I last posted. I have been spring cleaning, painting, etc. for the last few weeks. I was trying to get these things done before my daughter arrived last Saturday from California for a week long visit. My DD has been bitten by the crochet bug. She taught herself to crochet a few months ago by watching online videos. My mother taught me when I was about 9 years old. Anyway, DD has started a 12" Granny square swap on Facebook. Loads of folks have joined. I have volunteered to make a few squares because some of the squares are being donated for lap robes for wounded service men and women. 
She has made 2 squares while visiting. The squares are not blocked yet. The first is a winged dragon square.
Last night she finished a beautiful square. I love her color choices. I would like an entire afghan made from these squares. I would have never thought of putting navy with the spruce green and burgundy.         

My one contribution so far is this cranberry pinwheel square.
 We pulled all my stored crochet patterns and yarns. I had 3, nearly full, 20-gallon totes of yarns. She was like a kid in a candy store. We even found a half finished afghan I had started and then forgotten about. It has 8 strips like the one pictured below. Four and a half strips were already made. Being such a strong supporter and volunteer for the troops, my DD loved the red, white, and blues.
