I adore making all these granny squares and am up to about 20, I go in fits and starts. Make a bunch one day and pick it up again in a few days.
|love seeing them stacked so neatly|
I've also been working on one giant granny square baby blanket with a creamy off white wool and i picked up some pink wool to add a bit of color. I'm making this for a friend of mine who just had a baby girl.

I love Pinterest, it's truly addictive. One of the many wonderful blogs I follow mentioned actually making something from all those DIY pins, so I did! It's an adorable peasant dress for babies. I am going to try and link to the blog I got it from (that someone had pinned) the blog, Sew Much Ado, is fantastic! Her directions were super clear and easy to follow, I made two of these dresses for a friend of mine who just had a baby girl. So give it a try, make some of the things on your DIY board!

http://meetmeatmikes.blogspot.com.au/ and have decided to do the "A Granny A Day". I have always wanted to learn to make granny squares and they've never come out quite right until now! Pip at Meet Me At Mikes has a complete set of instructional videos that have me now whipping out these granny squares. What fun, I just have to hit the yarn store and add some more brightly colored wool to my collection of mostly neutrals. Wish I could figure out how to put the "A Granny A Day" button on my blog, go over to Meet Me At Mikes and check it out.

My family and I have moved into our new home and in the move I have unearthed so many unfinished projects, some I don't know if I'll ever get them done! Oh and the fabric, my stash from a million years ago, what fun to go through it. Some I still love and others make me think what was I thinking!? Here are some pics....
