Eye Candy Friday....

Happy Friday everyone! I wanted share the latest blooms from my garden...

I just love the colors:

Also - I have officially gone over to the dark side... I was crocheting!
I decided I needed that Larger than Life bag from Interweave Crochet.



I started making just the centers - and soon I will add more colors.

Sorry for the dark photo - but here's the first layer of color - a beautiful aubergine.

Here are the other colors I am going to pare with it... a light tan, a green and a dark brown. All are Tahki Donegal Tweed.


Tweedy goodness


To get some crochet practise before I really start the hard part of the sqaures - I crocheted a bowl and then felted it - to hide all my mistakes!

Well, at least you have gone over to the dark side for a beautiful project! I like the colors you've chosen.

Have a great weekend!

I'm working on that same bag :) I have all my squares made, so I'm on the main part of the bag. Hopefully done with it soon. Then I'll have to beg my sister to help me line it :)

Those are wonderful flowers! I really like the yarn you are using for the bag.

Cool bowl! Is it your own design or did you use a pattern?

The "bigger than life" bag is giving me "flashbacks" of the 60's and 70's!

Felting "fixes" many mistakes ... that's the best part of it. Your garden must look loverly.
