This originally was going to be a post with a photo of the red afghan that my grandmother crocheted many years ago. However, my daughter showed up and posed with her book in front of the afghan. Of course, the photo with her in front of the afghan reading The Princess and the Goblin by George MacDonald is far more interesting than the others with only the blanket.

Love the little one’s gently smiling face! And that afghan is really beautiful!
Lovely afghan only enhanced with your daughter’s lovely smile! She looks more and more like you everyday. 🙂
I love old books and that looks like a well worn copy.
I think we got it at one of those used book sales – it’s not like it’s a family heirloom.
How very nice of your daughter to be in the photo! My grandmother made afghans very similar to thisone…and I still have it. I think they are very cool in an old-timey way. 🙂
I like the afgan, you are fortunate to have one of hers. I have two baby quilts that my two grandmothers made for me.
You daughter is cute and knows it. She is photogenic like the little boy I have on my RT today.
I love the blanket but l think your daughter makes the pcturexxhappy ruby tuesday to you bothxlynda
I agree – my daughter does know how to steal the show.
Your daughter is so sweet-looking, Leora. I’m glad she posed for you. It does make a much more interesting photo!
My grandmother crocheted many afghans. That looks quite familiar. 😉
Happy Ruby Tuesday!
Your daughter is so cute. Beautiful Afghan. Love the colours.
Happy Ruby Tuesday
Very good picture in which the afghan (funny name) provides a fine background for a lovely young lady.
Yes, afghan (afgan?) is a funny name for a crocheted blanket.
Your daughter has the aloof grace of a true princess.Enchanting!
The afgan is also extraordinary, such a beautiful combination of colors.
My grandmother also made one afgan; mostly with odd colored rest yarn framed in black. Not this artistic at all…
Love the afghan but most especially the sweet enhancement of your daughter in the picture. Did you notice that the back cover of the book compliments the orange/yellow of the afghan? Very serendipitous.
it’s so cool that she looks happy reading
the afghan is beautiful, even more so because it has family history
What a lovely afghan!
Happy reading to your daughter! It’s fun to read a good book.
The afghan looks so warm and cosy. And the book must be very interesting.
What a beautiful capture of mood and color. I love the blanket, so filled with wonderful tones.
There is much warmth in this photo, in more ways than one.
Always nice to have a beautiful child to enrich your ruby subject. Nice afghan too.
awww what a darling 🙂

“The Princess and the Goblin” is one of my favorite children’s books!
We also have the sequel – “The Princess and Curdie” – which, IMHO, isn’t nearly as good as the original.
Very nice! It’s always wonderful to see young ones enjoying a book. George MacDonald is one of my favorite authors!
Love that crocheted blanket, Leora, I made one like that with BIG granny square in blue! Happy Ruby Tuesday! 🙂
