last Friday I wrote a post about the poncho I found
on Saturday I bought wool to make my own version
and on Sunday I couldn't help myself, but had to start on the first squares
it has been a while since I made full size granny's
and I enjoy making them a lot !
extremely colorful, more colorful than I would choose myself
but I still like the combination
and it is a challenge to me to make a poncho that has the same feel,
but a slightly different lay out than the original
while making these squares I am already sorting out my personal favorites
and of course I had to include the tulips in the pictures
the first ones I found here that were not in full bloom yet
so we can enjoy them to the maximum
something else I am enjoying since today
is the hard copy of Gatherings that arrived in my mailbox today
my first publication !
if you haven't seen it yet, you have to take a look at Heather's website soon
unfortunately she faced a bug in the subscription version, and to compensate that
for a limited time she offers the magazine free of charge through this link
so if you are interested in our full emigration story 'From Amsterdam to Toronto with Love'
click the above mentioned link ~ my story starts at page 114 and includes some of my own favorite pictures
grab a cup of your favorite coffee or tea and enjoy !
