Spring Granny Bag…

.

So here it is… Another bag,,, This month must be an obsession with bags!  This bag started as a Spring Granny Blanket, the colors reminded me of what I would wish for if our spring was here and flowers were blooming… It’s still cold and windy, not to many flowers or buds are out yet.  Here in the North West, at the base of a 14000′ +  mountain it is still not feeling like spring.  I have to make the most of it and brighten up my days with bright crochet projects!

Just to keep up my theme of the month,, Bags… I have started the next bag!  Nothing to do with Granny Squares which I have been making alot of lately!  It won’t take long, so here is a little peek….

Pansy Garden Bag…

Both of these bags will be making their way to the shop in town, Alpine Originals to be up for sale in the next couple days… The weekend is almost done and my crochet projects have been working up quickly.  I was able to do a little yarn shopping yesterday when we went to my daughters track meet in a larger town about an hour down the canyon.  She picked out the yarn for her blanket  that I will start tomorrow, it’s for a Crochet-a-Long that’s featured at The Crochet Crowd.  I really had fun watching a 17-year-old decide on colors for an afghan for an eclectic room…  At least this way she won’t steal the Sunburst Granny Afghan that I just finished!  Also, Michael’s Craft Store had Cream and Sugar Cotton on sale,,, so I restocked my stash for summer!  Always a great day when I come home with new yarn!

So here is to Bags, Granny Squares, Crochet-a-Longs and Yarn Shopping!

Weekend Crochet and More….

.

The weekend was coming to a close and  looking back I actually got a lot done!  A little housekeeping… A long walk with Charlie and finished up some crochet projects… Just in time to start the next weeks list of to- do’s!

.

My weekend journey started off Saturday morning with a cup off coffee and of course I used one of my Twisted Stitches Coffee Cozy’s and since we are still celebrating National Crochet Month… Don’t forget to check out the FREE PATTERN by clicking on the pattern tab…

Then I got to work finishing up an adorable Sweet Pea Zig Zag Baby Blanket that I will be delivering to the shop this week… I haven’t done a Ripple Afghan for years, I must say…

I love the way this turned out, some little sweet pea will get to snuggle in very soon!

Then… I got the notice on my weather station… A large storm headed our way on Tuesday… It looked so beautiful outside today, I couldn’t resist and decided to take Charlie for a walk while the weather was nice… A snow storm coming and our little 2 mile loop won’t be much fun to walk later this week,..So we headed out…

Charlie lead the way down the road and around our loop…Of course he had to stop and show me the geese in the field… Next the big decision… Which way to go… To the  Lake or town???

Another stop along the way to check the mountain out…Then back to the house where we looked back one last time to peak at the view of the mountain from the front step…

At the last moment, a quick stop to look up at the pretty cross hanging from the tree and Charlie was all worn out! Back in the house to kick back and take it

easy for the rest of the day

While Charlie took his afternoon nap, I whipped up some Mocha Java Muffins and a cup of tea…

All that and it is the end of the weekend…
