Hello one and all, and welcome to my new blog. I am not at all creative but I struggle through. I crochet at times. Once in awhile I cross-stitch. I LOVE trying to be creative and such.

My current WIP is a blanket for a Christmas present (not saying who, of course! in case they are reading this). My plan for this afghan/blanket is 5 designs, 7 squares each. Three of the blocks are Chris Simon's, from White = Birthday Flower, Green = Butterfly Garden, Yellow = Supernova. The blue, however, is one of my own designs -- kinda rough around the edges. As are my photo skills! The last design is still undecided at this point. I know, getting late...

We had our first snowfall this morning. Snowed, covered the ground, melted away -- all in 2 hours! Still cold, though.

Check out Koo's links --

Okay, and I need to figure out the linky thing. Thanks for stopping by. See you next time!


  1. Hi Renee! Nice place. No offense, but you need a new blog name! Or does that one have some special meaning for you? I am your first Follower...woo-hoo.

    Don't you love Chris Simon's patterns? I have made a few of those myself, and there are still some I want to try. Are you a member of Ravelry? Dayna Audirsch has a lot of free 12-inch squares that are really pretty. You can look her up there on the Designer tab. A lot of her pattern links are not working. If you want any of them let me know. I have some of them saved on my computer.


  2. And I am your second follower!
    Looking forward to seeing what you get up to.
    PS I see psycho tabbies is a world wide thing...ours are as well!

  3. mmm grany goodness! welcome to blogland ;)


  4. Hi Renee, so glad you found you way over here to us. We don't do anything great but at least we are still making our own mistakes. When you get the time stop by one of my blogs and say "Hi". Take care and I'll stop by soon.

  5. hello! i am quite new to blogs too - well done for joining. i hope you enjoy as much as i have here in London uk. i knit but find crochet harder... i wonder why/?

  6. Hi Renee,

    Thanks for the special comment. So glad you're up and running and I'll be contacting you very soon to let you know when my PIF will be in the mail!

  7. Thank you all to stopping by and for your lovely words. This is so much fun, but now I really should be finishing up something, know, that can probably wait.

    LOL. Have a great day all!


  8. Hello Renee ~ Looking forward to seeing more of your lovely crochet. Im just beginning to learn how to crochet and I think it might turn out quite addictive! Best of luck blogging :0)

  9. Hi, Renee! Thanks for your comment on my blog, and for following me! You are following me, right? LMHO

    These blocks are lovely, can't wait to see the finished project!

    I confess, I am probably a pattern hoarder as well. Surely I'll make all of these one of these days, right? Mwa ha ha ha ha ha!

  10. You must have some kind of creativity in you to have designed that blue block!

    Congrats on the new blog! Hope you finish the blankie on time!

  11. Hello from Australia and welcome to the world of blogging. I can knit (not very well) but I prefer to crochet which I am teaching myself with the help of some good books. Looking forward to seeing what you get up to and getting to know you.

  12. Hi renee!!!

    Wishing you a very happy 2011 and thank you for all of the lovely comments you have left over the months!
