Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Which Square is the Bestest?

When you were a little girl, did you ever lie under a special quilt or afghan that was made by your auntie, your mama, or someone else special; and try to decide which square was the prettiest? Me too. So I'm crocheting a granny square afghan with all the pretty colors found in this sweet Mary Engelbreit pillow on my sofa. With each little square I create, I imagine my sweet grandchildren curled up beneath the afghan, (little pink toes poking through the holes), picking their most favorite square. I must admit, I've been playing this little game of favorites with myself-but every time I make a new square, it becomes my favorite! I'll post a picture of it when I get done.
Note: Many thanks to Alicia Paulson http://rosylittlethings.typepad.com/posie_gets_cozy/ for her amazingly inspirational creations. Stop by her blog look at that Sunshine Day baby quilt. It'll make a granny square lover out of you!

These granny squares are so pretty, it would be hard to choose a favourite! With all the machine made items available today, it's so nice to find things hand-made with love in every stitch. Thanks for the link to Posie Gets Cozy. She has some really cute ideas there, too! Happy crocheting...
