Crochet bedspread!

Over the Christmas hols, I finally worked out how to crochet.  I then decided I would try and crochet a square....the square grew.  "What are you making?" friends and family asked.  "I dont know", I replied.  
I had this vague idea I would stop when I got bored.  Well, I got bored...and stopped - I now have a double bedspread - or a very nice warm throw blanket - its crazy heavy!

As you can see, I need to wash and block it - gotta find out how to do that now!

Phew - what to do next I wonder?
