Pretties In The Mail...

Can we all say- S.Q.U.E.E. ?

Awhile ago I won a Giveaway that Trish from The Old Post Road was having. She was celebrating her 100th sale at her Etsy Shop.

Yipee !!
Honestly... this is The Very First Thing I have ever won online !!

My package arrived last week...




Alice had to be snooper-vising closely of course...




So exciting... Even tho I knew from Trishs blog photos and descriptions what my parcel contained, it is Always such a Thrill to have the contents in your Very own Hot & Grubby little hands isn't it ?




Ah... Spring Lovelinesses.



My beautiful Yellow Bird (done in watercolours)...




A Fantablous Banner Trish sewed/crafted with her own hands !!


H-A


P-P-Y


B-I


R-T-H


D-A-Y

All Together NOW---

"Happy Birthday"

Sigh... Now don't tell anyone... but my birthday comes only once a year ? Shhh...
But, I am going to get it hung across my big Bookcase...
And Leave It Up As Long As I Want To !!




The Almost Bestest for Last...
Because there are Five- 5- of Them... (And Envelopes !!)

Note Cards made from Trish's artwork !!!



So Bright and Clean and Sunny and Enthusiastic...





Precious...




The colours are just Popping !!




Thank You Thank You Thank You Trish !!!
And Congratulations on the Success of your Etsy shop !!

~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~

After all was examined and sighed over and making a shopping list for Frames and mattes so I can get my Lovelies up on the wall...
My Dear Neighbor Shirley dropped by. She and her 9 year old great-niece had been mixing and baking and icing and sprinkling thus I was the Lucky Taste Tester of their combined Oven efforts...
(Sorry, no pics of the sugar cookies- but Goodness they were tasty.)

I got to sit down and have a handmade custom cupcake !! With Springy Sprinkles !!
(It didn't last very long either !!)




Life is Certainly Good Some Days isn't it ?

Waiting for Guacamole'

Is there some type of 'Crochet Anonymous' ?



A support group for 'Yarn-Addicted' ?




I am not being facetious or snarky...

Because M.Y. W.O.R.D. I have dove into the deep end of Touch and Texture and Colour and Silky versus Fleecy and Velvety and that rich feeling of having in your hands a Simple thing of Beauty...




Knowing that with a bit of Thoughtful attention and Contemplation- it will become an even More Intricate Thing of Beauty...

Guess that I have been Captured by the Elegance of these Twisted Threads...

Have begun my next Project...





'Lucys Garden' is what she has been christened...





Link
Pattern discovered on the engrossing Attic 24. Where Lucy brings forth the most Wondrous Things.





My thought is to follow her proven talent and choice of colour-ways...




But I must say that I may have wandered a bit into my Beloved Cath Kidston shades of Rose Red, Coral Rose, Bluebird Blue, Thin Yellow, Strawberry Pink, and Fresh Green.

The flowers progress.



And the numbers advance.




Forty-four with their band of leaves (twenty-two leafless blossoms at present)...







There has been a temporary interruption in production tho (he he)...

My 'Leaf' I am using for Green- is called Guacamole'. And as things are wont to do... I have run out !!




Two skeins are bought and paid for and should be presenting themselves Monday via USPS... If I can bear it that long !!

Kuchi continues to be a Boon Companion.




Keeping Little Flowers snuggled.




Such a darling Apprentice...




Oh, and we were paid a Visit today.




A couple of local Ladies strolled by for a delicate nibble at the salad bar.





They were about 8 feet off my Patio.





My door rattling caught their attention, however briefly, so the camera could catch their sweet faces...






These two does are last years babies. There is usually a third sister, but she must be shy today !!


Must go- I can hear my Yarn whispering my name ...

She Are Finished...

Funny how Things work out All By Themselves isn't it ?

Bull headed as I am, and not one to really follow Any set of Directions to a 'T' this first Granny Square Throw is completed.



And there were a couple of days I put it down and needed to think it thru.





Not totally what was envisioned in my minds eye... And looks vastly different than where it was going in the beginning...





I added the little crocheted "Primrose" blossoms to transition my corners. Adds a nice subtle 3-D effect I think.


I do Like it tho !!


Love the colours. Right in my rich 'Jewel Tones' that I keep circling round and round back to.


Small- about 40" x 40".


Soft as a Kittheh bellheh.

Speaking of Kitthehs...
Here is Babylon. And her Contortionist pose.


"Babylon. With Foot."

Now- onwards and upwards...
Already have a new project beginning. Something a bit more complicated perhaps. And hopefully lighter colours and with a semblance of pattern.
(We'll see how THAT goes !!)
