How beautiful a day can be
When kindness touches it!
Several years ago, I made my first attempt at a granny square. At the time, I just wanted to make simple baby washcloths, but for the life of me, I couldn't figure out the darn pattern. More recently, I've tried again, would get to a certain point where it just didn't make sense, the increasing was not working out, so I frogged the messy part and gave up.
When I saw the giant granny square challenge over at Le Monde de Sucrette, I was inspired to give it a go once again. Who wouldn't be inspired by this gorgeousness?
Twyla at Two Crazy Crafters had joined the challenge and posted her completed project the other day. Isn't it beautiful ??? !!!
She even sent an email and offered to help me with figuring out the granny square. I mentioned to her that I had come across a pattern at Tangled Happy, and was gonna try one more time, but if I had a problem, I would be in touch.
Finally success! Why do some patterns have to be so fussy? Not everyone makes their granny squares this way, but this was so simple and just what I needed and I am so happy (my husband didn't quite get the joy I felt when I finally started going round and round)! Thank you Tangled Happy for the pattern and thank you Twyla for your offer to help.
Another pattern I've been wanting to try is the African Flower. Marilyn at Room on the Left has created a gorgeous pillow using that design.
She was also kind enough to offer to help me step by step when my attempts were not working out.
Why is it my center does not look like a flower? I guess practice makes perfect. Maybe I'll figure this one out in the next few years. :)
Have a great day! Friendship blessings, Tammy
