On the Crafty Side:
The next time you see these lovely pieces of art they will be in the form of a baby blanket. Its taken quite a while to construct 140 "Lego" crochet blocks. I have made mine much bigger than the pattern. I also used colors to the liking of my Son and Daughter in Love.
I learned a lesson: IF you find a free pattern you like do not just save the net address. ( bookmark) Copy the pattern and save it to your computer. The gal who came up with this lovely pattern had it for free on her blog. When I went back to figure out something ....it was no longer free. I am all for crafters making money so no complaints. Just a lesson learned! Because she is selling it and it is her design I am not going to post how tos on my blog. Check out All Things Bright and Beautiful Her price for the pattern is great and she also has a completed Lego Blanket for sale at a very reasonable price. ( it took a lot of hours!)
Our youngest did this awesome photo transfer art. This was a gift for her sister. Directions can be found at A Beautiful Mess
We celebrate two in April. This year they are 21 and 18!
The 18 year old
We surprised him by flying his girlfriend in for the week. It was a good week!
Around the garden: We really did not have a winter. Spring has been cool and wet. The roses are loving it! I have a few pots of herbs, some sunflowers and bedding plants planted. No big plans this year except to keep up with what we have.
I know you cannot see both of them. They are there I promise. A lovely pair of doves and their nest full of eggs.
