Good Sunday Morning

A little of Crochet:

Hello and welcome to my new followers. So glad to have you visit! Today I am feeling a bit under the weather due to a cold or flu virus. So I thought I'd share a few examples of different crochet items in my collection. The above is a picture of my Princess, sharing my first big crochet project. It is an afghan (crocheted blanket) which I made many many years ago when I was in college. It is single crochet just with scraps of leftover yarns row upon row. Because it is all single crochet, it is pretty dense and heavy. I worked on it over a year or more to relax from studying. Today it is wrapped around me like a large shawl, which is what I do when I'm not feeling well. It keeps off the chill and it's washable so If I spill a bit of tea on it, no worries. 
Wedding Gift Afghan
 This crocheted blanket is one that my daughter made for a wedding gift for her good friends who married last summer. You can see she is a much better crocheter than I am, and faster, too! Well, today is a good day to just hibernate indoors and sip tea, so that is what I will do. Enjoy your day whatever you create!

  1. Hope you are feeling better. I just read your lovely note on my blog and promised I would stop by. Love your cat. She is beautiful. I have always loved beads but only use them on crazy quilts. Your jewelry is beautiful. I will be sure to visit you again.

  2. I think you and your daughter's work is wonderful! I learned to crochet but don't practice enough to be really goo. Maybe someday when I retire (if that day ever comes!!!). Will definitely be following your blog.

  3. I haven't crocheted for many years, Louise, but it's probably a craft I would fall back to, now that I can no longer do needlework. I love the dense look and feel of crochet. Nice to see your Princess likes to be the center of attention :)

    1. Oh, she certainly does think the world revolves around her, and she "talks" to us when Hubby and I are having a conversation and when the phone rings, she loves to interrupt. :0)

    1. Thank you, I know I will eventually. At least today it is sunny and clear, that always helps. Even the snow looks pretty. Cheers!

  6. Thank you for visiting my blog and I shall come to visit yours. I still have many blogs to visit from the many for the Grow Your Blog Party. This kitten is just one of our cats. She has a sister who has longer hair (also all black) and we have a boy kitty who is black with a white neck and white feet. He looks like he is wearing a tuxedo. I will share more cat photos another day.
