Repairs can be magical

Wonderful afghan in need of repair
This wool blanket was the last finished piece by a woman who could no longer crochet after a massive stroke.  Her sister was the lucky recipient of this piece and was sad when holes developed.  There were a few runs where a single yarn had broken, and the center seam was loose.  Once those were fixed, there were a couple of places that looked like a moth had gotten in - but only a couple of those.  

The main bits to fix
Matching yarn is always a challenge, but I used so little that you'd have to look real hard to see where that is.  

And everyone lived happily ever after.
Symmetry restored - which side was repaired?
