The back of this patio pillow is a fun lime green.
The second pillow I made today was out of this great French Country Toile. Chickens....who could pass that up? Certainly not me!
This morning when I was out doing my chicken feeding and garden watering rounds, I was noticing how gorgeous my Dad's roses were! I love red and yellow together, and these two rose bushes planted side by side are putting on quite a show. I had to clip some and bring them in to enjoy.
I have been obsessed with making crochet flowers lately. Piles of them. I just love these dainty little Maybelle flowers.
All of the ones in the outer heart shape, are made with the leftover yarn I had from making my Jubilee afghan. The yarn was purchased from England when they ran a no shipping special. It is DK and so soft and yummy. I have been on the hunt for some comparable yarn in similar colors to continue making them. I have found some of the colors that work, but it is worsted weight. I made a few, and from the photo, you really can't tell the difference. But they are heavier, and slightly bigger.
If you would like to make some of these fun flowers, go back a couple posts on my blog, and you will find the link to where I found these. But I am warning you.....you won't be able to stop!!!!
I leave you today with a little funny.
Yesterday I was walking through the family room, and noticed that Noah's scissors were laying on the floor next to my thrifted afghan that we all love so much. He likes to bundle my blankets up on the floor, building a make shift track for his monster trucks and cars. He forms hills, bumps, and jumps, playing for hours. At first I didn't think too much of the scissors on the floor, but then I got suspicious. I said to him, "Noah, why did you have your scissors out here in the family room?" He innocently replied,
"Oh, because Grandma, one of my monster trucks got stuck in the blanket and I had to cut it out!" I tried my best to hide my gasp, and said, "Show Grandma where you cut it!!!" And then I explained to him, that we never, ever, cut the yarn in an afghan, or it will unravel!!!!! He had no idea...and he was so cute, I couldn't be mad. I will fix it.
Tomorrow I have a friend and co worker of my husband's coming over to ask me some questions about keeping chickens. He and his wife recently bought a 2 acre property near the wineries in Temecula. They want to start raising chickens. I need to make a run to the feed store in the morning for more feed and hay. I will see if they have the breeds of chicks I am wanting. Who knows...I may be coming home with more little fuzz balls to add to my flock. I will keep you posted.
