my granny gypsy ways
These pictures, my friends are the very reason why I have neglected filling my etsy shop with winter or hair accessories! I have mentioned on a previous post that I had become obsessed with granny squares, granny circles, afghans, pillows...They are not really very good, but I am happy to utilize them to cheer up my decor! I found it hard to take a circle and make it into a square or a hexagon, so the sides of each are slightly askew from one another but it is amazing what one can do by stretching! I could not find a simple granny circle pattern for a round pillow so I improvised. That round pillow is probably the granniest looking thing I have made, something about it not quite chic but....oh well, I like it! When I eventually found a pattern for turning a circle to a square, I ended up with a cute rectangle pillow that is not too bad! And..I enjoyed making the afghan (or lapghan) but it took a long time to make and it is not that big!
It seems that my Granny and Gypsy posts were the impetus for all these projects, but I must soon get back to etsy store fillage!!
