Granny Square Blankie



As you can see, I have been a busy girl!!  Here is a good two-week's worth of crocheting some granny love!  It started out a bit like work, but once I got into it I haven't been able to stop.
I had a call from a lady who had seen the blanket I did for Hospice.  So this is a special order.  I told her I would gladly make another, but it would, of course, be a little different.  It is for a little girl and yes, it will have an owlie on it!
Good Lord!  Look at all those ends.  I need to stop and weave some in, but I don't want to interrupt my granny mojo long enough to clean them up.  I am joining my squares as I go, which I really like.  And I am just feeling my way through the design.  There is a little bit left before I complete the band of 5 round grannies, then I am not sure what I will do.  

Other than this, things have been busy here.  Time just gets away from me, especially on the weekends. Before I go, let me share my happy little jack-o-lantern collection with everyone!
Aren't they cute?!!  I put them in my little antique mini cabinet so I could keep them together.  I am especially fond of my "Seagrove" pottery pumpkins.  
It is looking a lot like fall around the house...and I love it.  Right now I am working on some little haunted houses (the idea came from pinterest).  Hopefully I can get them done this week and get pictures posted next week.

For now, I'm off.  Laundry, supper, housework, you name it...and all I want to do is sit and crochet!

Found you via a pin and now I am stalking the archives. I hate to weave ends, so I weave as I go. Have to or it will never get done. Beautiful and inspiring work. And sweet phoebe is adorable.
