Lucy, from Attic 24, has a beautiful blog. She lives in England and loves to "potter around" and crochets. And she shares her simple, colorful creations for free.
I really should be able to add a link to her site ... please just Goggle it and look around.
Anyway ... last Christmas, yarn, Cozy Stripe Afghan ...
The whole thing got packed away and moved to Florida. We bought new furniture and had lovely drapes made and it all looks pretty and coordinated ... like a real gown-up person's house.
Even the screened patio has a pretty rug. And this is where we sit every morning for coffee.
When the temperature dipped down into the 60's (one day), it was time to find and maybe (someday finish) that afghan.
What a surprise to realize that it will also coordinate and look lovely in our NEW house.
