Put a lid on it!



Or more like...
How about a cloche!?

 Are you guys so tired of the granny squares? I'm sorry! 
 I 'm a little consumed with them right now...

 I feel like I work on them non-stop.

 Just trying to get the thing done so
 I can take it to Spokane with me.

 I'm kind of excited about it. I think that it's going to be kinda cute, in kitschy way.

I think sweet daughter is going to like it too! 

I'm joining: 
Both very fun parties well worth perusal.

A cloche should showcase what we hold most dear and your's certainly does... very sweet blog you have hear. I love your vignettes... especially your blue dishes! Lovely, indeed!

I used to have a Corning tea pot just like yours. I loved it. I've been knitting a lot lately but I need to start making Granny squares again because I have a collection of pretty wool yarn that would make a nice afghan.

Your vignette is so sweet. The granny squares are perfect under the cloche, love the colors and it really makes them pop. Thanks so much for sharing.

Granny squares bring back great memories! I had a granny square vest in 1st grade that my grandmother made for me that I love. Displaying the ones you've made under a cloche is a clever idea.

I LOVE GRANNY SQUARES! They are totally addictive!
You keep using that adorable Corning Ware kettle-I may have to go steal my Mom's from her top cabinet and plunk some sweet daisies in it. Could I blame it on you if I did?
:)
Adorable vignette--loving your happy granny square colors. Hope you finish on time!

Thanks for visiting me and leaving your kind comments. Now I'm here to visit you. Those granny squares look really cute under glass! And I really like that butter dish that you have your cloche on. It's on my want list!

FABBY'S LIVING said...

I love crochet and don't have one of these...so I'll take them too! I also love the way they look under your cloche! I'm sure your daughter will love them!
Thanks for your sweet visit! Hugs,

Your granny squares are very cute. Love the colors you chose for them. I see your Brownie on your header. It is a twin of mine. Have you ever been to The Brownie Camera Page http://www.brownie-camera.com/ ? They talk about where to buy film and even how to wind it onto other canisters so it fits in older cameras. I keep wanting to try to see if any of these cameras work!
