Fireside in Fall

Hi y'all,

With the weather turning nasty here I have hunkered down in front of the fire for some hooky time! Nothing makes me more motivated to crochet than a warm fire and comfy chair. I am having problems getting up from my spot FIRESIDE.

Little friend hanging on my mantle that I made using Lucy's Birdie Decoration.

Sorry it's a little blurry.

I am so thankful for my home when so many people are digging out from the mud, sand, and water left behind from Hurricane Sandy. The pictures and stories are heartbreaking and I am praying for the MANY who were in her wake.

While I have been at home watching the news my hands have been busy trying to finish the blanket I started last spring.

I have had to rethink the size and edging for this project since I am running low on the yarn for the squares, and I really don't want to buy anymore. It is one of the challenging, and also rewarding, parts of crochet...  reworking, adapting, changing, undoing, doing again.....
Keep checking back for more updates on this ever changing blanket.

What are your working on at the moment?
Have you had to rework any projects?
Do you find the process frustrating or rewarding?

I hope all is well with you and thank you for stopping by for a visit!



  1. What a cozy cozy fireplace, admirable! And your blanket is gorgeous, would also look very nice as a carpet just as on your photo ;-).
    About reworking, oh I hate it. I often put such a thing aside and start again later ;-).

  2. Thank you so much! I have set it aside a few times but now I'm determined to get it finished. I've never made a blanket before. Thanks so much for your kind comment and thanks for stopping by!

  3. Love the squares and the birdie. Great work!


Hi friends! Thank you so much for leaving me a comment. I LOVE to hear what you think and I PROMISE I will respond to each and every one!
