Granny Squares Everywhere ~ Reclaiming Home and Garden



It was bound to happen.  I got bit by the "granny square bug."  I made several bottle cap keychains with round granny squares for garden.  These can be made into magnets also.



I made several bottle cap necklaces (and more keychains) as well.



I have been crocheting up several granny squares for winter scarves.  These will be donated to a homeless event next month.  I'll have updates later on what these will look like.



And I just had to try these granny square dishcloths too.  Aren't they so cute?

 The start of another cotton hand towel.


 The start of a cotton dishcloth perhaps?


Weekend is over...reclaiming a clean and organized home begins....oh, and the garden too.


We had a very long week, followed by a long weekend, packed with activities - Homecoming, and a wedding. My younger brother had his wedding at a winery, in the wine cellar.  It was beautiful, and it was fun to see all the family members again.

It will be nice when I have all of my house (and garden) reclaimed, and every errand and need caught up with.  Then I can take a rest and enjoy a fall day on the porch.

I have to go dig out more granny square patterns.....toodle-loo....
