A Sneak Peek at Granny's Garden
The Granny Square Book for inspiration, and my craft journal.
Greetings and salutations friends! I'm so glad you're stopping by today. As you can see, Granny has taken over as I've been busy preparing for the next installment of the Project. In Part IV my focus is more on finished squares so that means lots of happy hooking this weekend!
I'm truly overwhelmed (in a good way!) by the amazing amount of encouragement, support and positive feedback that I have received for this series. I'm having a fantastic time learning new things and sharing them with you. Thank you so much for reading and commenting. Knowing that you're there each week keeps me motivated and inspires me to do the best work I can.
The square that you see here is known simply as Flower Garden Square VI from The Granny Square Book. Join me next week for Part IV and I'll tell you all about it and the other lovelies that are growing in Granny's Garden!
In addition to my fiber offerings, I like to participate in Five Minute Friday over at Lisa-Jo Baker's place. It's writing in the raw and if you've never done it, why don't you give it a try? It's really easy - you just:
1. Write for 5 minutes flat on this week's prompt with no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking - then post it just as it is!
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..
Here's what happened when I spent five minutes writing on the prompt "Join"
Putting together. Attaching. Creating a whole out of parts. These are all ways to describe “join”. With all of my recent work with the granny square I’m thinking about different methods for joining them. The whip stitch, a chain stitch, a mattress stitch or perhaps the invisible join?? Always options for creating a connection.
And now I think of all the pieces of my life that have been pieced together to make me who I am today. And of my friends and family and how I am connected to each of them in a way that is similar, yet different.
We are the sum of our parts. Some of our connections are strong while others are fragile and fraying. I know that I am more because of each one of these bonds. I am a beautiful, multi-colored, vibrant granny square blanket. Each square is an experience, a moment or milestone. And I am joined together with yarn made of hope, faith and love.
So there you have it. I know "time flies" is a bit cliche but it doesn't stop it from being true! Today before it escapes completely I'll be linking up with these wonderful bloggers, and stopping by to see what kind of fun everyone has been up to. I hope you'll join me.
This week I'm also joining in with Tricia and her Stash Bash. Click over for a peek!
Thanks so much for stopping by and spending a bit of your day with me.
Until next time friends,
Be blessed and stitch & read with love!
