5 Good Things

1. White Carnations nestled in my favourite planter.

Today was a hot, hot day and these flowers made me think of cool breezes with their snowy white blooms. How could I not take home a bunch? Especially since they were sold at a discounted price 🙂

2. Misti Alapaca lace weight yarn in a sumptuous golden hue.

This particular pattern is my adaptation of the Beachcomber Shawl pattern from the July/August 2010 issue of Crochet Today! My foundation chain is 4x longer than what the original pattern calls for.

3. My boyfriend who thoughtfully gave me this edition of Crochet Today! as part of my birthday gift this year.

This edition is chalk full of gorgeous patterns for women, children and your household. So many patterns to choose from and only two hands!

I absolutely love the Lace On The Bias summer tank top. It is simply elegant, with spaghetti straps and easy fringe. Definitely on my list!

I am also loving the Beautiful Basket worked in tapestry crochet. A bright, colourful accent for your home and a great way to showcase your crochet talents.

Thank you to my boyfriend for giving to me this collection of patterns that will have me stitching for quite some time 🙂

4. Blueberries…which are not only yummy but are packed with antioxidants. I love just eating them uncooked as a snack. Mother Nature gets a 10 for this creation 🙂

5. My new job at The Pantry Shelf. Wonderful decor, friendly staff and great food. What more could I ask for!?
