In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Granny Squares and Other Ramblings

Well it appears we are all still here.

I started doing morning devotionals again after yesterday's thunderstorm, in the middle of January, in Indiana! We had horrible thunderstorms, with tornado warnings in Southern Indiana, then by the afternoon the temperature dropped about 30 degrees and it started raining down little ice pellets.

And I was out in it.

And I have a cold that I'm trying to keep from turning into pneumonia and pleurisy. I'm paranoid about that after last year. But I had to go out, because...
I have been very busy trying to get my 89 year old, hard-of-hearing, Mother in Law moved from a therapy/nursing home type facility into an assisted living facility. Every time I talk to her on the phone I have to YELL. SO IT'S HARD TO TALK TO HER WHEN I AM ANYWHERE IN PUBLIC BECAUSE EVERYONE IN THE ENTIRE PLACE HEARS ME. AND YELLING WHEN YOU HAVE A COLD IS VERY DRAINING. But she can't help it.
And if I hear one more person say, "that's good that she is moving there, then you won't have to do anything" I might slap 'em! Well....I have no idea. I might just tell you another post....when I'm not in the midst of it all.

But right now I want to chat about granny square fun!

See these.....I've been making them.

Granny Squares...

Lots of them...

Different sizes....

Different colors...

Different shapes....

All because the Granny Bee called me the other day and asked me to teach a class on granny squares at the Winter Woolen Workshop.

My next post is going to be about the Winter Woolen Workshop.

Here is what I want you to do.

1) Click on Winter Woolen Workshop (in red, two lines above this one), read that post, then come back to this post by clicking your back arrow.

2) Mark your calendar for February 25 and 26.

3) Then tell me what I can do with this cotton yarn.

As you can see I made a big granny square out of it, for a pillow covering. But I don't like it. I'm not into variegated yarn so much. Any ideas?

  1. What a wild winter of weather we are having isn't it. Sorry to say but we are at 7 right now and I think it's on it's way. Great looking grannies.

  2. Crazy weather your having.Hang in there. I love your granny squares they're so cute. Cheri

  3. Make some slippers! You need them to stay warm and keep your cold under control. Your grannies are prrretty!

  4. Oh, you're prompting me to make some grannies too. I haven't done much crochet in the past year. 2012 it is!

    Hope life gets easier soon. Get well and take care of you.

  5. Keeping your hands busy sometimes is the best thing from preventing your mind to wander to not so good things... you make very pretty things!!!


Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to leave a comment on my blog. I enjoy reading them. I hope you have a wonderful day.
