I am being inspired by color.
It all started with my sister wanting a new flower for this handbag that I made her. Her other flower? = droopy. So she requested anna's fabric flower in colors that would go with her handbag.
So I got my fabrics out and became enamored with the colors --> vivacious pink, coal black & snow white. Seeing the flower completed, I wondered what I could crochet with these same gorgeous colors....
...and came up with a very non-traditional Christmas stocking.
The grannyy square is from:
I laid the blocks out to form a nice stocking shape and btw--- I'm not sure the proper way in adhering the granny squares together before seaming them as a stocking -- but the safety pins worked well.
And although I do not like it when stores etc. cannon-ball straight-away into Christmas and mindlessly ignore Thanksgiving-- I am realistic enough to know that if I don't get started on this stuff now, I'll be running around like a lunatic and trying to get all of my projects done ( read= not a pretty sight.)
Now I have to think of clever ways in finagling my husband into decorating our Christmas tree in this color scheme...
I know that will never happen.
