Colorful Sunny Morning :)

Hello, dears! Hope your week was going on well, and see, we are already at the end of it, thank God, and in the beginning of a new month. I was feeling a bit sad these days as I miss my parents very much, and I know that they also do. However I'm already planning my trip home, which hopefully will happen in the summer. 
As of now I'm indulging myself in crochet. I'm slowly accomplishing Cheburashka, BUT... I've been itching to show you my flower granny square blanket progress! I must say that I did a pretty good start to it, and came up with 20 colorful squares in just 4 days. The pattern Flower Granny Square by The Sunroom you can find here
I thought it'll be good to take my work out in sunshine, so I grabbed the camera and granny squares, and   the magic began as the beauty of the colors revealed in front of me. 
From another side... I enjoyed taking the photos, and feeling warmness of the Sun.
Some of my favorite color combinations. I like how sunshine backlights yarn.
My beauties! I'm sorry for such self  granny adoration but this is the best feeling when you like what you do and like the result of it :) (yea, yesterday our neighbours obtained that satellite plate which got some limelight too, haha).
That is not it as I had something else waiting to get sunshine too. A Rastafarian slouchy cap I made as another custom crochet project. The first such cap I made and would like to make same for my husband or myself (ego crochet, remember?) 
Today is my FIL's birthday, so Happy Birthday to him and many many happy years ahead! :)
Have a colorful weekend, my dears, and I'm so happy that my previous post made many of you excited about visiting India (or wanting to try Maharajah sandwich ;), and even awoke memories related to this country.

  16. Ohhhh, Hindustanka, how beautiful! Love, love, love all the colors! Ohhhhh. Congratulations on such lovely work.

    It must be hard to be far away from your parents. Are you from India? Where are your dear parents?

    I lived away for years and it was sad for me, too. Now they are both gone to the other side and I miss them even more.

    But I believe one day, after this earthly life, we will be reunited again forever. Susan

  28. Hey honey! Good morning.What is it that you feel? Is it a feeling of enclosement, a sense of danger, a general bad feeling? Was there a string of bad luck, maybe arguments. Maybe there is something simplier that would help you and is already in your kitchen cabinets.

  29. Wow your blog is very beautiful and your work, congratulations. Kisses from Spain.

  30. Wow, these are many fronts. Well, of course you can cleanse your home with rosemary smudge(instead of the traditional sage one) because it has Sun qualities which you definitely seem to need right now. Not only it will get rid of stagnant energies but it will also empower you. As for the whole feeling tired thing, you could try some Saint John's Wort tea which is n't a tonic, but will reduce any stress and most importantly it will boost your serotonin levels, that will get you going.. It is like the chocolate but without the calories.
    To promote change, healing and confidence find an aquamarin pendant to wear close to your heart. It is a wonderful stone and you can find it very cheap(there are some slightly more expensive out there, but we do n't care about the quality of the crystal, it just has to draw your attention). This crystal has water and healing qualities and has helped me overcome an eating disorder a few years ago. It will definitely promote whatever changes you need, just remember to charge it under the Moon.
