:: Fun Crochet ::

Hello Ladies,

Wow! We're getting closer to the weekend, and I must say that it is already spring out here in Southern Cali. Everything is blooming, especially my wisteria. Yesterday I sat under my trellis and enjoyed the sweet aroma of the blooms. I crocheted to my hearts delight. :)

This morning I decided to make something fun, so, inspired by my darling, sweet, barefoot, beach jogging daughter, I made a surfer chick beanie.
Whaddaya think, cute, huh?

With no one else to model it, well, you guessed it, cest moi!!!! (eek!!! No make up!!!!)

Well, my dears, I will go out of doors now to enjoy the rest of this beautiful 78 degree spring day.

Ciao!!! Hugs/abrazos !!!!!

:) Here I go again. (: More Grannymania!!!

Hello ladies!!!

Wow, it's been a few days since my last post. Not that I've run out of things to write about, but lately my blog has not allowed me to post anything successfully, especially from my PC.
I wanted to share a few of the things that I worked on before valentines day, but, I wasn't able to write a text and save it. Sooooo, I've decided to share from my phone. My other projects I uploaded onto my computer. So until I can figure out where the problem lies, I'll use my phone camera.

I decided to start another blanket, the reason is that I need more neutral colors in my living room. Don't get me wrong, I love bright, happy colors, but try as I may to accomplish that look, it just doesn't work for me right now.

I generally prefer different shades of white, soft beige, soft greens, powdery blues, some shades of pink, and even a little pale aqua. The brights are very pretty, but, I'll stick to what I already have for now.
So, my granny throw, will have very little yellow, soft green, white, and light brown. I would like to add another round of color, but I haven't yet decided what that will be.
I'm really not too crazy about the brown, but I think can soften it up a bit.

I have also been working on a couple of birthday gifts, but I will share those later.

For now, back to my grannies.

Have a great rest of your week!!!! :)
