I Luv me Granny

Well we've had a return to rain here today, but somehow i wasn't too freaked about it, i got a chance to catch up on some wip's, otherwise i promise they would Not get done, i just love that sun waaaaaay too much & spend many lazy times basking in my garden leaving house, meals, projects............................ very much UNDONE!!
So today instead of getting depressed & sulky i did some work on my granny blankie......


This reminds me of hooking up the granny stripe blankets, easy, relaxing, no hassle crocheting bliss


Thirty rounds so far & loving every one. I'm thinking lime green next just for a shock contrast to all the subtle blues & pinks, What d'you think????? Do have a peek at the Flickr group in my sidebar, there's some sweet grannies there just waiting to be admired :)

My eldest called today "Mom fancy coming for a coffee with me?", YES, but we went for some eats as well.......had a lovely asparagus bruscetta yummmmm, & a coffee of course, then proceeded to go shopping, "window only" of course, but then i spotted these & could not resist ;)


I mean how cute are they, three of them for five euro, bargain loveliness................


They are now in residence on my kitchen dresser, i'm a happy mommy today!!!!

Ella's a happy lil girl today also, she finally got her dress i had promised three weeks ago when i made the others for the "dresses for girls" project, i think she makes the dress look so cute.


These little dresses take literally 40 minutes from start to finish, i should be making one a day as a past time,
Ella loves hers xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
I love to see her smiling, & new dresses made by mom's hands make this child smile!!!

To finish the day in sweet style we made come cupcakes Mmmmmmm


Just light vanilla fairy cakes filled with yummy raspberry jam & whipped cream ...... there goes my diet "again"
I hate dieting anyway, know what i mean!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
I think there's three left so i'm off to get me some coffee & cream cakes
Have yourself a good evening & please leave a comment, i love reading them
Lots of love Karen Xxxxxxxxxxxx

I'm drooling over those yummy fairy cakes, and your little ones dress is so pretty..........lime green, why not......the beauty of crochet and knitting is you can easily frog it back if you don't like the effect.

I luvv your grannies too! I think lime green would work well.
Little tins - so cute.
Little dress- likewise.
Little cakes- yummmmmmmmmmy. Surely the raspberries in the jam count as one of your 5-a-day? Therefore, healthy.

Oh yes... lime green! It enhances the colours on the little tins, so I think it would do the same on the granny....can I have a cake please? :)x
