WIP ~ Wednesday – A Flowery Blanket πŸŒΈ

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Today I only have one WIP to write about…that doesn’t mean there’s only one floating around 😁 but this one is taking the #1 spot right now. It’s a blanket for our grandbaby, due in January 😍

The blanket is called ‘Georgia Mae’s Flower Patch’ πŸŒΈπŸ’•πŸŒΈ named after the wee one, and because flowers and an abundance of colors are the perfect way to say ‘ Welcome to the world, Baby Girl’ 😊

Here’s the beginning of the ‘Patch’…

As I was stitching I had an idea! I’m gonna make this a ‘Crochet Along’ πŸ˜ƒ

What do you think?

I’ve been taking notes, and Part I should be up and ready for you by the weekend.

I hope you all crochet along, and help me welcome Georgia Mae to this beautiful world!

I’ll be back soon…and looking for ya 😁

Until then πŸ’•

Cuddly Baby Blanket ~ A Pattern πŸ˜Š

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

We all love all-things-baby, right? 😍

So today I wanna show you how easy it is to make a warm, cuddly, soft & supercute baby blanket in just a few hours.

It really is β€˜easy peasy lemon squeezy’, and not at all β€˜difficult difficult lemon difficult’ πŸ˜‚

I promise! 😁

Before I give you the details, take a look at the ones I’ve made so far

All it is is a big β€˜Granny Square’ and super bulky yarn – I used 4 skeins of β€˜BERNAT Baby Blanket’ yarn, and a 8mm/L hook 😊

Not sure how to make the Granny Square? Please checkΒ hereΒ – it’s the same pattern as the β€˜Oversized Poncho’ 😍

Work 13 rounds (not as many as the Poncho…yay πŸ˜†)

After you join the 13th round with the slipstitch, chain 1, and continue on with sc. One each between the dc of the previous round, 1sc in the ch1 space.

Join with a slipstitch.

The border is a round of slipstitches and picots. For that you want to (from the joining slipstitch)

ch2, slipstitch into the first chain, slipstitch into the next sc, slipstitch, ch2, slipstitch into the first chain, and so on. Join the row with a slipstitch.

That’s it πŸ˜ƒ Easy, peasy right?

I will be listing some in my Etsy store…just in case you don’t get to making one. 😁

Will you be making one? Does the pattern make sense? Please let me know, so I can tweak the pattern accordingly. πŸ€—

Have a fabulous rest of the week! πŸ’•

My First Crochet ~Along…and a BIG ‘Duh’ Moment πŸ€¦β€β™‚️

Hello my lovely friends  πŸ’• Wonderful to see you!

Last week I signed up for my first crochet ~along. 😁 It was announced on the ‘Yarnspiration’ Facebook page, in collaboration with the ‘Crochet Crowd’. 

Since I’ve been wanting to do one for quite some time now, and Mikey from the Crochet Crowd is always a great source of inspiration (and, hey – I got to buy more yarn 😜) I signed up, went and ordered my yarn….giggles…..and waited. πŸ˜• Not my greatest talent – but I made it. πŸ˜‹

The first part of the instructions arrived – via e-mail- on Monday, together with the reveal of the project picture 

I like the look of that! 😍

The yarn didn’t get here ’til Tuesday evening πŸ™„ so I had to wait until yesterday (Wednesday) to finally start my blanket.

But first – decision time. Which colors to use? See, when I ordered the yarn I couldn’t really decide. I knew I wanted purple and lime green. Well, guess what? No lime green πŸ˜• I didn’t like the sage…so I went with turquoise and apricot/orange. Close enough! πŸ˜‚

The pairing of the skeins 

   That’s nice 😊   That’s ok too πŸ™‚

  Yep…that’s it πŸ˜€
I looked over the instructions 


Glanced at the note, 1st, 2nd, 3rd round….got it! Or so I thought! 😜

Now we’re coming to my big ‘Duh’ moment. See ☝️in the note where it says “carry color not in use loosely across the top of previous row” and see how the sentence continues?! Well, apparently a glance at ‘notes’ in instructions is not advisable! 😸 Since I stopped glancing right at “previous row”, I did not really know how to accomplish the carrying of the color. And apparently a severe brainfog prevented me from figuring it out all by myself. πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ

And that’s how I ended up with this 


You can see exactly where and when I took a closer look at the directions πŸ˜‚

But since it’s just for me I didn’t frog it. πŸ˜‹ The other side is perfectly fine 


I still love my colors. 😍 What do you think of it/them? 

Are you inspired? If you are…here’s the link to the pattern. 😁

Thanks for visiting today 😍  I hope you don’t think any less of me now! πŸ€—

I’m looking forward to hearing from you…tell me what you’re thinking 😎

Take good care of yourself πŸ’•
