45 rounds with grandma & still standing

I tell you what, this is the most heavenly crochet project ever, no thinking ahead, no stressing over colors, no worries on tension, just hookidy hook!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

45 rounds down, not sure how many to go, don't care either, we're enjoying this sparring together, cause she's not a rough, tough ol girl she's sweet & easy to please.......................

I went ahead & added the green, & you know what, ever since color has not been an issue, everything seems to blend :)  "I think", say yes even if you don't mean it :)

Its even wide enough for the back of my two seater now.
 I do however have a destination in mind for this sweetie........................ when its finished.

This week much to my delight I received a blog award from Tillyflops Creations. I love her blog, so much crafty loveliness goes on over there, do go check her out, she's great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                       Thanks so much Tillyflops xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
I know i have to pass this on , theres soooooooooooooo many blogs i really love, so i kinda picked the first seven i wrote down when browsing through my dashboard. The blogs i picked are amazing talented women, its such priveledge to have a chance to see the talent out there. I guess these awards are by way of thanking each other for inspiration & fun & laughs & sometimes even low times shared............. Its lovely becoming a part of it xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Anyhoo enough waffle, i do get carried away sometimes, just one of my many, many quirky, habitual habits.

Seven blogs i really love are.......... geeeez i sound like i'm on the Eurovision!!!!!  What an eejit!!! :)

Cupcake Castles
Sew Scrumptious

Thank you for your kind comments on my blog. I love seeing bits of other people's lives around the world. It looks like you have a busy life and a lovely family. I saw that you've followed my blog, thank you, but you don't show as a follower on mine. Being a newbie to this I'm not sure why?

Hi Karen,

Only just read your comment as I've been a bit under the weather with a pesky summer virus...........thanks for the award, I did start out as a tag and award free blog, but I've decided to join in the fun, and as soon as I'm up to writing a post I will include your lovely generous award.

Your big crochet blanket is looking fantastic, brilliant colours, it'll be lovely when it's finished.

Great colours. I am feeling the need to make a blanket soon, and this might be the one for me- something which evolves as is it made. Perfect!
