I finally finished the other side of my pouffy pillow! I used the free granny circle pattern and my Lucy Stylecraft color pack left over from the neat ripple afghan behind it. For the reverse side I used Chroma from KnitPicks in the color "Lollipop". I set up my photo "shoot" on the deck, it's a perfect day here!
The hydrangeas are in bloom and the waterfall and pond are making lovely watery sounds and the air is warm... just super nice.I brought out my Jadeite cup and saucer with some green tea and a bran muffin to enjoy the afternoon.
I have my crochet project in my sea shell bag that I got in Shari's Crochet giveaway - my current project is the slouchie hat for my DIL Kristi. I'm getting near the end on it. Then I will start on my shawl I saw on Pammy Sue's blog. :-)
I really like this granny circle design as you can't see the "join seam" so it doesn't detract from the design.
After these photos I am sitting out on the deck crocheting and visiting with my hubby and our son and our 2 grandson's are riding their "quads" around the pasture and through our woods... this is Michael who is 12 and is shooting up fast!
This is the other side of the pillow.. I'm dismayed that you can see a "seam" and wished I would have done a continuous spiral and not the "step up" design. So, this is the back.
I do like the colors and the yarn, it's a wool acrylic blend in a single ply, much like handspun yarn.
Into the pasture...

The chickens are settling into a better behaved bunch. Dayle cut some cantaloupe up for them.

The pouf, it's filled with feathers.
Kristi's slouchie hat is coming along.
Last night the moon looked almost full so I tried my new camera on it. Hmmm.. I might try again tonight.
OK, time to go see how Dayle is coming on the final chicken pen security feature, digging down outside the fence and attaching wire fencing to the bottom and covering it up with dirt... JUST in case something decides to dig under it and try to get our hens! :-) Our other son just pulled in with our littlest grandsons - so we'll be cooking up a quadruple batch of macaroni and cheese tonight. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
