We had big plans for doing lots of yard work this week. That didn't happen. The start of our break was a cold one. It's hard to believe last Saturday we had snow! It wasn't much but still snow on the last day of winter.
The cold, snowy weather made it perfect for sitting and crafting. I made my nest and that's exactly what I did.
The fireplace is on, Bru is snuggled beside me, and I'm working on granny squares. A perfect way to spend a cold day.
I ordered a copy of Taproot magazine from SoulMama blog. Okay I'll be honest, I ordered two of their magazines. Magazines are my vice. If it's a crafty type of magazine then I'm over the moon. This is the first time I've bought a copy of Taproot. It was wonderful. I've throughly enjoyed the essays. It is so beautifully put together. I know I want to receive this with each new issue. This best part about the latest issue #17 was the pattern for the Stanley the Rabbit.

The granny square blanket went on the back burner so I could make my very own Stanley. I think mine will be Stanley's cousin Sting. I used yarn I had in my stash.
He was fun to make. The pattern includes a tiny backpack for him to wear. I need to make that for mine. A bunny in a striped shirt needs a backpack.
In spite of being sidetracked with Stanley/Sting I did work on the granny square blanket. This will be the project I focus on for the week. I can finally say I'm closer to the finish than the beginning. I've moved my boomerang scarf to my take-a-long project. It is easy to work on in waiting rooms or at the soccer field.
We made a day trip to Richmond to visit Virginia Commonwealth University for my daughter. I enjoy crocheting on car rides. It does help pass the time and I can still chat.
My new favorite project bag. It was on sale at Michael's for $3.74! I couldn't pass it up, besides magazines I have a bag and basket vice too!
Thank you for stopping by for a visit. I hope you have a lovely Easter. Lisa
