granny squares:

I used my stash for these granny squares however I cheated a little and bought the taupe color that surrounds the squares. I love the colors together, the picture does not show them well.

I love how I decided to join them together. I just did a single crochet in the spaces. 
( i didn't crochet in every stitch)

This is what the back looks like.  I don't even know how to explain how I stitched them  and I can't find a tutorial online. I think this method works well on this because it is going to be a purse. It doesn't need to be as sturdy as if it were going to be a blanket.

It is going to be so pretty. I need to do 3 more granny squares for the front panel. Then 3 more for the back panel.


  1. Hi, very beatiful grannies, congratulation

  2. I love your colors for your grannys! I can't wait to see your purse!! :) So pretty! xo Holly

  3. Lovely granny squares! It was a great idea to buy the taupe really makes them stand out, and match perfectly. It is going to be a gorgeous bag. Your joining method is very creative. I have a kind of tutorial in my blog (@ Pattern: Plaid Granny Blanket + links), and you can find many different tutorials in You tube too, by searching: "How to join granny squares".

  4. Really pretty grannies! I'll look forward to seeing the finished purse :) Elisabeth x

  5. I like your joining method. It's very simple and creative. Have a good week!

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1.

Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
