4th of July, another excuse to crochet.

Hello everyone,
I know, this is totally strange, I rarely ever blog on Saturdays. It is usually a very busy day around here. But today I am at home all by my lonesome just relaxing. It's so quiet I can hear a feather drop.
For the last couple of weeks I have been very busy crocheting blue and white outfits for my granddaughters to wear on the 4th. (their mama can throw in whatever red she wants)

This week I finished Milla's tunic top. I just love the navy blue and white combination, it's so classic. She can wear this over a red tee and blue leggings, or just over white with a red hair accessory. I preferred navy blue and white because after the holiday is over it is still very wearable.

This pattern is from the crochet today
July/August 2008 issue, same as the baby dress I made for Ireland. I think I'll put that magazine away for a while.

It was a very good week indeed, we had the grandchildren over for two days. I can't get enough of them sometimes.
The girls are so girly and giggly, and Julian is such a boy. It was an all around good week.

I leave you with pics of my latest crochet, and one of Julian beating Papa at chess.

Have a great rest of your weekend!!!


  1. You are so right! Navy blue is classic and just good all around. That dress is adorable! I'm going to have to look and see if I have that mag. too. Your little sweeties will be so cute!

    P.s. I like the "sailor" look to the stripes, after the 4th, her mama could always use gold accents for that look too! :)

  2. For some reason I only have the Lacy Baby Frock pattern, huh, I'll have to go through my book stash and look, anyway, enjoy your quiet day! :)

    1. Hi Sarah,
      Thank you so much,
      I actually thought of the navy white and gold, or even yellow.
      But knowing my daughter shell come up with something totally off the wall.

      Have a great week!!!
