Love Notes


It's been a wonderful week.  Lots of cloudy days with much needed rain.
I spent time doing things I love.  Cooking, crafting, reading and yes, some
writing too.  The whole week was like a love note to life.



I am progressing with my granny squares.  I am finally comfortable enough
to crochet a square without having to refer back to the YouTube tutorial.  Now
I can sit and crochet while we watch the Olympics on TV.  




I found another tutorial and I am teaching myself how to make scalloped edges so
that when all the granny squares are completed and sewn together, I can create a more
finished look.




My next crochet project will be to make another granny square afghan but
this time I will use extra soft baby yarn.  My cousin and his wife recently had
their second grandchild, a little girl named Teagan.  I want to make a rag
doll for her too and maybe a busy book that she can take to church with her
when she gets a bit bigger.  This should be fun!




I am reading a mystery that I am enjoying.  It is The Body in the Boudoir by
Katherine Hall Page.   I have not read any books by this author before,
have you?



Today I am getting my chores done.   Laundry is in the washer.
The family room needs to be dusted and vacuumed.  We live in that
room on weekends, so I want it to be all fresh and ready for us to
settle in and be comfy.  I am guessing that there is some kind of golf
tournament (there always is) that David will want to watch.  I am
yearning for some Cajun food, so I want to make some shrimp 
etouffee and maybe some red beans and rice with the andouille 
sausage in the fridge.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  6. I used to love to make granny square afghans, and I don't know why I stopped. I think I have one about half finished in the attic, and you have just reminded me that I should find it and finish it! Beautiful photos. I am resting today, too, catching up on the blogs.

  7. Susan, I LOVE your granny squares and color choices! You've done a great job! I just learned to crochet three years ago, and I wish I would have learned years ago. It has to be my very favorite hobby, next to reading. There are so many great crochet blogs; I'm sure you've found some of them. Have you looked at crochet on Pinterest? I'm addicted :)
