Granny Square addiction 2009/2010

5 Feb

Kind of a wintersleep that i´ve been in lately. The last three month have just flown away like a whirlwind.

We had some sweet family related christmas days. A new month, year and decade has begun and with it on the way came snowfun.

We had some lovely friends around the last weeks and in between i made me some time for crafting. Espacially Granny squares and blankets. As you can see:

My work!  one finished

the other one still in progress

Crocheting granny squares has become popular the last year. Many projects popped up on the blog and www-world.

Like a granny a day flickr group from Pip – Meet Me at Mikes.  She has done some good video tutorials on how to crochet granny squares.

A great picture tutorial step by step how to granny square can you find on Katjas cute maedchenmitherz Blog.

If you need a german granny square  tutorial you can find a great one here.

Then i want to introduce you to my two crochet queens:

Lucy – Attic24 and

Carina – Carina´s Craftblog

So join in, in the fun and get creative, addicted and in love.

but for those 500 pencils i would love to be one.

500 pencils project

How would it look like to draw with the Norwegian sky or a Drizzly Afternoon?  It could inspire to everything.

Imagine how it would be recieving 25 coloured pencils every month for 20 month.  Maybe i would display them like this. Or find new ways and ideas.

I would definetly have much fun with these pencils, colours, names and stories.

What about you?

To go for it and a sneak peek

Look what pretty spring colours i found at a nearby shoe store:


That will be colourful wearables. The upper ones are from Think. The have a great animation for their website. So have a look.

The shoes in the front are from El Natura Lista and they too have an exciting and inspiring website.

So if you searching for some new shoes… have a look.

On the other hand i have a sneak peek for all my swapmates from the swap that lovely  and just married Janel organized for us:


It´s nearly ready for getting it to the post.  Oh i can´t wait to see what all the other swappers made for each other. Thanks Janel for organizing this fun.
