I currently have four spots on my sewing room wall where I display landscapes that I change out with the seasons (or at whim!) and it appears I'm lacking enough winter scenes so I have to rectify that by playing about with this photo to see what I can create...
and used with his kind permission
- There are a number of links HERE to some easy-to-knit afghan designs (be sure to scroll down)
- I can't imagine making THIS but it's certainly beautiful!
- If you're looking for ideas for what to do with old silverware (you are, aren't you??) go HERE. And at the bottom of that post you can click on all sorts of ideas for many different household items.
- If you like cats, or know someone who does, perhaps one of the patterns HERE might catch your eye.
- THIS is a pretty little heart design that might be fun for Valentine's Day.
Your new photo is just so pretty--lovely Winter scene...ReplyDelete
That Frieda blanket is beautiful--but, like you, I cannot imagine myself making it...hugs, Julierose
I'm looking forward to getting started on recreating that photo even though I'm not a fan of winter.Delete
And yes, that blanket is gorgeous. I know I could make it but I think it might prove to be a life's work!
Nice quotation. We get used to advantages so quickly, it's good to step back.ReplyDelete
Sometimes we just need to be reminded that we have it much better than so many others do.Delete
Jane Crowfoot's designs are gorgeous! I'll keep her patterns in mind in case anyone ever wants to trade a knitted blanket (or two) for a crocheted blanket :)ReplyDelete
I agree - I was hard pressed to choose a favourite from her designs!Delete
Your sewing room wall sounds delightful and inspirational. Love the quote. Dear Pooh, he always has such a heartening and encouraging way of looking at life.ReplyDelete
There aren't too many wall spaces left in this apartment that aren't covered with something!Delete
I love that blanket, but can't crochet. The silverware chandelier was really neat.ReplyDelete
I can crochet but I think it would prove to be a life's work if I were to tackle that blanket. It sure is beautiful though!Delete
Greetings: Happy New Year, I hope all is well with you.ReplyDelete
Thank-you for the links, it is fun visiting them.
I like the photo of the old building.
Did you get the photos I sent? just curious.
Happy New Year to you as well!ReplyDelete
And no, I didn't get the photos....??!! Hmmm....wonder why......
I really like that new photo and can't wait to see what you do with it.ReplyDelete
I'm looking forward to seeing what I can do it it too!Delete
Really looking forward to seeing the new project grow Mary Anne, it is a lovely scene. Christine xxReplyDelete
I think it's going to be a fun one to try to recreate.Delete
Oh! That gorgeous blanket! I’d love to make it, but I don’t think it would ever be finished. 😂🤣😂🤣 You need to make the Chef cat for Resident Chef! I love the laid back cat, oh and I love your new project too! 😁👍🙋♀️😘ReplyDelete

I'm with you - I don't think I would ever finish that blanket either. Hmmmm - a chef cat for RC - must ponder that one!!Delete
As I've been dealing with the frustration of trying to repair on my own a lodged dead bolt, totally clogged kitchen sink, lodged automatic hatch on my RAV4 and now a non working upstairs furnace. (I'm seeing a theme?) I've been unsuccessful and turned for help and thankful I can. Often I do give the Winnie the Pooh thankful prayer. Thank you reminding us.ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness, you ARE getting dumped on! It always seems to happen in bunches though.Hopefully you can get it all sorted and no more for a good long while!Delete
Ooh, you're going to have fun with that one! Still waiting on snow over here.ReplyDelete
Today's quote is so true, so much to be grateful for!
Yes, I must say this one IS fun. As usual I'm experimenting with some different techniques so we'll see how it ends up.Delete
