  8. Wow, what a post full of eye candy! A real treat for the eyes on a wet and windy morning that's for sure! I just LOVE the first pic. I was experimenting with a crochet piece a couple of months back and did some flowers like that in a row. I didn't really care for the rest that I had done but I did rather like the flower row. Seeing that picture, it inspires me to make use of it. Ahem, though I have a MOUNTAIN of bits to finish, so it may just be a distant dream! ha ha! Might just have to keep coming back to this post to keep the eye candy topped up! I hope that you had a great start to 2014!


  9. Hi, I just found your blog and I am in LOVE with that top photo.. where did you find that pattern? I would LOVE to do a scarf or blanket using that.. my email is teresa@byteresa.com if you could let me know where you got that pattern.
    ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  10. Just saw your flower hexagon and was wondering how you did the half flower hexagons as I'm currently working on one as well and I'm struggling to make a half flower hexagon to fit to make a square blanket??? Love all the other projects as well very inspiring :) Barb.

  11. I have been looking for the pattern for the afghan ( pink with brown border for a very long time. My mother started on and I would love to finish it but do not know how. It is beautiful. I love the popcorn squares. THanks. Your work is beautiful
