The other blanket...

A bucket of colorful yarn to make another blanket for grandbaby number two; sex yet unknown.

Wonderful beachy colors just right for a little one who will reside in Miami, Fl. The yarn is a fingering weight extra fine merino; soooo yummy soft!

The pattern i used is called, Miami Beach Blanket. Maaike of Crejjtion fame designed the blanket and i purchased it from her etsy shop!
The blankie whipped up in no time, partly because the directions and color charts were so easy to follow and because i was a bit obsessive while working on it.  :)

I can't wait to hold little Florida baby wrapped up in this sweet blankie... I think it will do for a boy or a girl!

How bout you?

Baby blanket  is finally finished!!!  I added fuchsia around each square and scallops around the blanket !
this blankie is for grandbaby number two, sex unkown by the way,  i know... i know... i just had to take a chance this baby will be a girl!
I love the way this blanket turned out.  A nod to retro bohimian chic, just my daughter's style!
And, if by chance the baby turns out to be a boy I have started on another sweet blankie, lol, i just can't help myself.  :)
What's your latest crafting or making adventure?

I love the little cotton tails.
These booties are super soft  thanks to the angora yarn!

I used the Debbie Bliss pattern in her fall/winter 2011 magazine.  I must say these booties were a little challenging at first, but I was able to get the hang of it. :)

Brighten your day with....

It's such a happy color and one of my favorites.  I simply have to have it around!

My kitchen walls are yellow.

I love to wear yellow... proud to have my own dottie angel wrap apron.  I am very content pottering around my house whilst wearing this very "granny chic" apron!

This time of year yellow peeps are bound to appear....they always make me smile and they're completely yummy too!

What lovely color finds its way in to your home?

Purple, blue and....

Perfect colors for a new make; a baby blanket for grandchild number 2. Hip hip horray! (shouted while jumping up and down)

These colors are the choice of my bohemian, ecclectic, chic daughter number three.  Her wee one will snuggle in Cascade's ultra pima cotton.  Thinking, granny squares have a bohemian feel right?

p.s. if this little one is not a girl I will have to start another blanket :)

It's time to....

Speaking of love.... coffee is one of mine.  Cappachino, white chocolate latte, or just plain brew with a shot of vanilla all hit the spot and serve to make the day a bit more special.  I've been seeing this cup make the rounds in blog land so I thought i would add mine. The cup is really too pretty to throw out. 
I'll take mine with cherry sours please!

And... I soooo adore hearing from you dear blog friends!

So I received a perplexing e-mail yesterday.  Pic nik, the photo editing site, that I use is closing in April.  The e-mail directed future former users to go to google + for editing.   Hmmm.... so  I did, and it turned out to be picasa.  I downloaded it and began to fiddle.  Voila!  Here is the result of my experimentation with a new editing program.  Little bits of Hopelessly Romantic Art Studio's year of 2011

What do you think?
