Ta...da...:0)

 I have a FINISH!!!!

Hippety hippety ..:0)

Not a patchwork thing...though...
Crochet...


Firstly I had set on making the lampshade 
With Granny Squares...


Changed idea when seeing the Grannies together...
Wanted them for a blanket instead...


So a lot stripes was the new idea!!!
And it was FUN!!!


Wasn't sure about mixing all kind of colours...
So I went for my new love..
Pink and orange!!!


And I LOVE it...
Just need to paint the foot white...
Someday..:0)


Now I can sit here and just relax...
Or whatever I want to..
And just be happy...


And it makes a pretty pattern on the wall too...

Great to finally have something 
FINISHED...
Odd feeling...:0)
But a GOOD one!

Yesterday I got a most wonderful win in my mailbox...
Will try and take photos today...
So see you all...

My crochet...

 Crochet...

All day long...all night long
Not...just in betweens...

Progress on my Granny Squares...
They are now a rectangle of something...
Had a little project in mind for these...





Close up...
Oh my that orange do look BRIGHT...
(Sure don't look that bright inside, ain't easy 
dull and grey November days...not inside and not out either!)



On the creative progress I just needed to test 
Something else out...

Lots of stripes


Love love the colours and all the fun
Crocheting along row by row


Yes..yes..I thought...
It will work..

So the Grannies will continue to grow square by square...
and maybe one day they will have become a
Little blanket for me!!

The rows..
Are in the making...


Promise...:0))
I will show later...
Light are sooooooo bad...
photos didn't turn up well at all tonight...
BUMMER!!!!

Gift from Louise...

Hello...

Did you think i had forgotten all about you...?
How could I...;0)
Not a chance...but you know days just pass...
In my world they just DO!!

Have tried to be a little creative though...
No patchworking!!!

CROCHET...

But first I have to show you SOMETHING...

Something I have enjoyed and smiled at ever since
I visited Louise...

A gift from her...made for me...


Pretty pretty...:0))


Hmm... I can se some black hair on these pics....
Wonder who can have left those trademarks...;0)


Do I need to say that 
I LOVE IT!!!



It's even more pretty hanging inside...



But the lights inside are so poor when it's 
rainy and gloomy outside...

So outside is the best option to take photos right now...
Still haven't made myself a light box ...
for taking better photos...
Maybe one day...:0)

Crochet...
Ahh..
Lets take that another day...;0))

Marica weekend...

 Back home again...
and I had a wonderful time away...
Didn't do much...
Just caught up on lost time together...


Taco dinner...glass of nice white wine...
Chatting and Downtown Abbey...
Dark chocolate...
Off to bed after midnight...
(That's very late for me...:0)

Up in the morning to a set table and breakfast...
and after that a look into my bag...

Yarns...


Decided to see if I could restart my granny squares...
Totally forgotten all about how to join 
these as you go...
So while I browsed the Internet for some info...

Marica looked into the books I got in the mail 
just before I left...perfect timing!! :0)


More chocolate...;0)


Lovely new books...
Have to read them...well look into them tonight...
And dream of future projects...maybe..;0)

Found the page I was looking for...
Sarah Londons tutorial on how to 
Join as you go...


So now I have a perfect project to take with me
on Viktors Floorball trainings...:0))

Sadly my little getaway had to end...
Thankyou Maricafor a lovely sleepover 
and wonderful company...
 I won't wait two years to visit you and yours again!!!
PROMISE!!

Seams...

 Time just went!!!!

And I left you here with not knowing if I 
managed to get those seams right...:0)))

With a lot of seam ripping...
And a lot of patience...
I did it!!!


Now the seams don't point in all kind of directions!!!!


All twelve just waiting for being sewn together...

Wonder when that will happen???

Not this weekend though...
Because I am going away on a little visit...
To my friend
...Marica...

It will be fun...
We have lots to catch up on...
Way to long time since we had a little 
get-together!!


Over and out from a wintry Sweden..
See you :0)
