Crocheting a Blankie & Hat...

My nieces little boy just had his second (!?!) birthday so he was the Happy Recipient of a Custom Handcrafted Primary Coloured Blankie !!




 I call Anna my niece... actually she is the Middle Daughter of my Bestest Friend since we were 14- Debbie's daughter...
Mostly kid colours and this was my First Ginormous Granny Square so somewhere it went Wonky & the outer most edges tried to Ripple...




It was very Calming to Crochet tho... Just going Around and Around until it felt like Blue needed to me added... or Orange !! 



It Seemed to get Really Big Really Fast the last Few Stripes...




Actually It turned out rather Nice & Cheery & Cuddley !!

 Birthday Boy just loves the character Elmo so I tried my hand at a Googley-Eyed Red/Orange hat...



You do have to admit he does really have Googely Eyes !!


This was the Un-Blurry-ist photo taken at his party...
He is a Fast Moving Giggling Machine !!
 
Oh...
Are Thirty Something Dads supposed to like Elmo too ?



I might have to make him a Batman hat for his B-day !!

~Morning is Squawking & Churriping~

...yes Churriping is too a word !!!

Supposed to be in the mid to upper 70's today--- Yeah !!
With possability of rain showers this evening !! Droop...

But for right now all the birds out in the yards are Squawking, Trilling, Whistling, and there is one Little fellow that makes the noise like the Invading Aliens Remote Eye thingy in the original version of War of the Worlds (Gene Barry- loved him)--  a  Woobing Woobing  mechanical noise... Poor Birdy cracks me up everytime !!

Drug out my baby acrylic paint bottles and did some touchups...



These two flowers buckets have that raised metal decoration... so I painted them up in My colours !!



This Large Bucket had a Blue Daffodil on it...
I kid you not !!

So out came the Churchill Creme spray paint for a Nice Change...
And then I went thru a file folder of Floral printouts... Got my Mod-Podge and Va Va Voom !!



This is the "Beautiful Bouquet" clip-art from The Graphics Fairy I used..
Looks rather Grand If I Do Say So !!



Found these Moroccan type Lanterns on Amazon-  Have them Hung up now and all I need to do is---




--- Get those little battery operated fakey Candle thingys to put in them.




This one hangs right over my head... And they do look Sparkely when the Sun shines thru the Glass !!

Off to grab a Fresh cup of Nescafe'...

I do Hope we all have a Lovely day today !!
