Granny Square Love

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

I adore granny squares. I love that I can make the same square over and over without having to think too much about the pattern. Once you've made your first couple squares, you can just breeze right through the rest of them. (Which is absolutely perfect when you come home from a long day of school and just want to curl up with some Downton Abbey!) This lovely, little pillow has been in the works for a shamefully long amount of time. It's been sitting in my yarn basket, incomplete for probably over a year. Anyways, since last week was Spring Break, I finally had time to finish it up! You can find the pattern for the squares here

Now that this project is finally finished, I think it's time to start on a new granny square pattern. Maybe a full afghan this time? :) 

Cross Stitched Boxes

Sunday, March 2, 2014

Ages and ages and ages ago, I bought these really wonderful boxes at an estate sale and immediately began imagining what they would look like if the tops were cross stitched. I was sooooo excited about these, but then, unfortunately, they did not get finished for a very, very long time. (Like most of my crafty endeavors lately.) After almost a year of just chilling out at my apartment, I finally finished the last box about a week ago! It felt so good to finish an embroidery project because it has been way too long since my last one! I haven't decided what each of the boxes will be used for (the tea box will probably hold tea), but I can't wait to put them to good use and see how pretty they look around my apartment!
