Sort of Grannies

Yesterday I made a start with some granny squares. The idea I found here, at a blog called Dutch Sisters. They look a bit different from the usual granny squares, but that’s just what I like about them. I don’t know yet what I will make of it. I would like a little blanket, but I know myself well enough: it will probably take to long, I’ll be bored after a while doing the same square over and over,  and then I give up. So maybe a pillow cover is a better idea.




Note by author: the finished project you can find here!

Then again a movie proposal in the horror genre:

The awakening – Also about a ghost in a house, just like my last recommendation (although this time it all takes place in a school). Very ominous.

By the way: don’t you love the colour of this tulips? Orange with a sort of flames all over it. Love it!

  4. You can call them whatever you choose, because you are doing a nice job. I never learned to do that type handwork.

    1. Thanks, Terry! I think that a pillow cover is what I make from it, because I already started another project, so a blanket will take too much time. Liz
