Crochet and Me!

Well another wonderful weekend has come and gone. They seem to go so quickly lately. Maybe it's because they are so jam packed with lots to do.

We walked and did some gardening and I crocheted my little heart out. I don't think that I can call myself a "hooker" yet but I am getting there!
My colorful little granny squares are piling up. I am weaving all the ends in as I go along so I am not left with a pile of yucky ends to do once I have crocheted them all. Hubby keeps looking to see if I have made two squares that are alike in color. So far each one is different... don't know how long that will last though. It will be so lovely to snuggle under when winter comes. I can see myself now snuggling beneath one blanket while crocheting another. Drinking tea of course and munching away at something sweet and wonderful. Well I am never one to just do one project at a time. This is another crochet piece that I started over the weekend that was promptly stolen while I was making dinner. Contrary to what the cat thinks it is not a cat bed! I think I will keep it to myself as to what it is just in case it doesn't go as planned. That way if I make a mess out of it and it gets all befuddled then I won't have to embarrassingly show it to anyone... coward that I am. So far though it is going as planned and I am quite thrilled. I must say I am finding crochet quite relaxing and wonderful... who knew!
I finished off another little bag last week and I kept forgetting to take a picture of it. I hung it in our almost blooming Dogwood tree, I thought it was lovely and summery hanging there.
Toward the end of the weekend I realized that I still had these little marigolds to plant. They will have to wait until tomorrow to go in the garden. It's getting late and I am pooped! Besides I think if I listen really hard I can hear my crochet calling me. Do I hear the kettle boiling... could hubby be making me tea?

See you soon.

I love your granny squares!!! I think you will have to fight with your cat if you want to get back your work ;-) What a are you crocheting ? This is a lovely bag, the color is very nice! xo

Love the granny squares! I think I should start some of those for the summer. It is so hard to take a huge afghan outside to work on, but the granny squares would be perfect. The bag looks great too! Love the colour! About the stolen crochet....never leave a work-in-progress unattended. Cats are such opportunists!

Sounds like you had another perfectly perfect weekend. Love those granny squares - they are my favorite thing to crochet. I am so glad you are enjoying crochet - I still admire your knitting skills though. I can crochet almost anything but knitting takes alot of thought and practice - at least for me!

Looks like you have been up to lots of fun things lately! I love your colorful granny will be a beautiful afghan! I hope you will be putting some of your bags on Etsy soon...I've been waiting! Have a great week!

You're a better hooker than I am. Well done you, the squares look very colourful and sure to turn into a wonderful snuggly thing. You have saved yourself so much grief sewing in as you go. A man who makes a cuppa, heavenly I know.

I think the granny squares are so pretty! I KNEW you would like crocheting!! I'm addicted...though I am the slowest crocheter ever. I think you need to make your kitty a bed. Seeing your marigolds has me wishing I would have planted some this year. I'll have to see if I can find some.

You have quite a pile of squares now. Can't wait to see it put together.

I had to laugh at the "cat bed". My dogs always think everything I make is for them and they look for chances to steal my projects.

Hi LizzieJane! I saw the gorgeous granny squares on you blog again. Love them! If I could become a follower of your blog I certainly would. I love your pictures and the combination of crochet and flowers/nature is always a good one.
