Howdie Friends! Everything ok in the parts you call home?
Here at Songbird’s Nest, everything is back to normal, or as normal as normal is around here. Tomorrow morning My Love will be off on his bike for a few days with some of his motorcycle friends. So I’ll have the house to myself. I plan to fill it with a lot of friends and heavenly indulge in all things girly and feminine.
So I guess by the time My Love is heading this way again on Sunday I will be in a chocolate induced sugar coma, filled up with images of romantic Chick-Flicks and maybe still a little bit tipsy….
Because there will be JillZ…
Do you know JillZ? It is my favorite vice of the moment.
It is a light, fresh Apple Cider and it only has a little bit of alcohol in it.
Really, just a little bit…
And the fact that I am totally hooked to it has nothing to do with the cute guys in the commercial….
Ok on to other things. How do you like my finished Grannie Blanket? I am in love with it. I really love the colors I chose and it feels so great to snuggle up with it at night while indulging on some of my favorite TV shows (and JillZ….).
I really loved the process of making it too. It was the perfect project. Every square took me on average 45 min to finish (I never said I was a fast worker), so one evening of TV watching would result in at least three moments of ‘YES’, ‘Score’, ‘Finished’.
And I am all about instant gratification…
I will pick up a crochet hook again one day, as soon as I find same space on my list of projects . (Ha funny! As if I my list ever gets shorter…).
The blanket was the cue to bring some more summer colors into our living room. I’ve put the browns and oranges away until Fall, and brought back the tans and cheery stripes.
Don’t these colors just remind you of summer on the beach?!
I will be adding more and more summer touches, but the seasonal change has come really late this year. I was longing for that summer feeling, but somehow the weather in these parts has still been so grey, wet and cold (our heater started working again spontaneously again this week!), that bringing in too much light colors felt too cool.
So besides looking really good on my sofa, I have actually been using the blanket for some comfort and heat too.
And you didn’t think I wouldn’t share those cute guys with you, now did you….
PS Behind the scenes I am working on something very exciting, scary and possibly truly fantastic. More information soon, so stay tuned.
PPS I am still adding lovely bits of inspiration to my Inspiration File, check it out.
PPPS Did you notice my ‘blogspot’ has disappeared from my address? Yep I have gone private domain.
PPPPS I hope I fixed the problem with my unclickable comment link, let me know if you find any other glitches on my blog.
PPPPPS I really should stop with this PostScript thing…..
