Over the weekend I was into decorating for the 4th of July, and came up with a new little patriotic quilt block for my front door wreath.
I just love when ideas come to me in the middle of the night, and they actually work out! I am going to leave this block with the rough edges for my wreath, but was thinking how sweet it would look as a pillow or mini wall quilt. I will be putting together a little tutorial for the block later in the week if you would be interested in making one. So many possibilities, and easy to sew together!
I adore roses, and I am always keeping my eye out for crocheted potholders, and aprons with pretty roses. I was happy to come home with these lovelies.
Some of my favorite colors together, pink and green!
I have been wanting to make some of my own, and finally bought the yarn and a couple of vintage crochet books for the patterns. We'll see how well I do, the patterns are a little intimadating. Have you ever made these before? And, I know that it was well worn by some wonderful lady.
The shape is so elegant, and I can't wait to wear it in the kitchen or in my craft room!
Two more grannie blocks, and only 4 more to go! If I get time I might finish them up this week, but knowing me I'll get distracted with something else. ;)
Wishing you a beautiful and crafty week!
