Way overdue...

...on showing this blog a little attention. I can't believe how fast time flies. When I wander around the internet, I wonder how some people can post daily to the various social media platforms and still have time to come up with all of the beautiful and unique creations out there. I barely have time to brush my teeth and get the kids off of the bus.

I have been so busy with family, work and...blankets. First, the family. My son: Harry, had a diorama due this week for Science. He picked the North American Grasslands. I think he did a really nice job (OK, I helped a little, but that's the benefit of having a work-from-home, graphic designer mom.) I printed the photos he picked and handled the glue gun, and he typed the labels and did the cutting. Hope he gets a good grade. I'm posting this because I was helped and inspired by other Moms' photos!

Secondly, the blankets: A very nice woman named Kathleen has contacted me to help with some overflow blankets. I'm happy to work with her because she is so darn sweet. Just a really pleasant human being (we need more of her). Anyhoo, we did some pretty daisy throws, and then I worked on this one for her. I switched up the daisy by only doing a double crochet in the petals instead of the usual treble crochet. I like this petite daisy variation. The colors she chose were also some of my favorites, and together, I think it turned out to be a very pretty blanket -- if I do say so.

Hope this post finds you happy and healthy!

Feeling like summer

I have been busy with a few custom blanket orders, but before things ramped up, I was working on this me it says summer...sun, sky, water...bright and fun. Now if only the weather would catch up!

I used Red Heart's Minty, Turqua, Delft Blue, and a vintage brand soft yellow

Radiant Roses Blanket Complete!

I used approximately 1 skein of each color: Red Heart Super Saver (white, pretty in pink, petal pink, and glow worm). For this baby sized blanket, I did 4 squares x 4 squares. With the green border, the size was around 34" x 34".

I will try to put up a finished square pattern soon...the rose only pattern can be found here.

Radiant Roses

On a rainy Sunday, I am finishing a new blanket for a customer. It is one I created a few years ago based on a vintage blanket and my rose pattern here. I will try to get a new post up with the last few rounds I used to make it into a granny square soon.

I used Red Heart's petal pink, pretty in pink, white and glow worm.

I hope it sends some color and sunshine your way. Happy Sunday!
