Meet Granny-Square #3, Framed Flower. This is my favourite one yet – super-easy to make, no fiddly little circles or corners.
…. and another lovely day here today. There is a feeling of spring in the air, but it’s probably my imagination since it’s still July. Oh well, we can hope!
Sundays are really not my favourite days. I think this is something I got from my Nanna – she didn’t like Sundays either. Sundays are kind of a nothing day. They don’t have the excitement of end-of-week Friday, or the possibilities of first-day-of-the-weekend Saturday. It’s more of a waiting-for-Monday day.
So, I thought I would start a new Sunday Tradition. A Granny-Square-a-Sunday. I know most bloggers seem to go for a Granny-a-Day… but that’s just too much of a commitment for me, haha!
So here, is my first. This is called a Briar Rose.
… and, umm, a second! This is called Coffee and Cream. But I did change the colours.
These are both in “200 Crochet Blocks” by Jan Eaton. It’s such a gorgeous book. The patterns are really easy to follow, with three difficulty levels marked. 1 hook = beginners, 2 hooks = some experience, and 3 = challenging. Both these squares had 2 hooks, but they were definitely challenging to me!
Next Sunday’s square is called Edwardian Fancy. Doesn’t that sound Rather Lovely? Now which colour?
Oh, and Moo doesn’t particularly like Sundays either…. Her eyes look a little red in this picture… maybe she had a big night on Saturday?
