It's Official

It's the first day of March and what a glorious sunny day it is too down here in Kent. We are now entering week 6 of the living-room redecoration and although my tether is in sight, nothing can spoil this spring-like day for me.

Also, it is true, pink and I are definitely friends again!

My late aunt taught me how to crochet when I was about 9/10 years old when she was making a bedspread for her daughter, my cousin, in all shades of pink. I really coveted that bedspread and wanted to make one of my own, but, of course, I never got round to it.

I really like making these small granny squares, the repetition is comforting whilst watching TV (did I mention my TV, lol!), but the different colour combinations keep it interesting. I also like to finish each square off with a round of pale pink in half-trebles, as when they are all sewn together, it makes the finished appearance more pleasing.

I don't know if it is just me, but I always get a thrill when I see these neat little stacks awaiting completion!

This will only be a small throw to cover an old, but very comfy nursing chair which I have stashed in my new craft area, which I am very excited about (more about this later).

Even my daughter remarked on my pinkness yesterday, asking if I was feeling OK (my daughter is a real pink girly girl).

So yeah, I am OK, on this pink, sunny afternoon, why wouldn't I be?
