Rainy Rainy Rainy

Yep. It has been raining here for the past three days.

No sun but LOTS of crochet.

I might have mentioned before that I adore Attic24's blog by Lucy from the UK.  She is a marvel. It doesn't take much to make Lucy happy.....a flower, a blue sky, watching her three "littles" play and draw, a walk in the woods or along the river.  Her favorite past time is "hookie" though. Her color work is simply gorgeous - bright, happy, and most of all fun.

I loved her new pattern for the "Chunky" Tote:

I longed to make one. The only problem was that the yarn for the project was not available here in the US.  That is until I spotted it on ETSY from the Texas Yarn Farm. I was elated!!

I ordered it on Thursday last and received it on Monday.  It arrived all soft and squishy in a white plastic bag and fitted perfectly in our mailbox.  I couldn't get into the house fast enough.

Needless to say I couldn't wait to get started and I DIDN"T....the colors were so bright and cheerful.
I now have all the "bibs and bobs" completed: Main bag, two straps, eight flowers, and eight leaves.
All I have to do is assemble...and there seems to be enough yarn left to make my little CA grands a bag as well.  I'm planning to scale their's down a bit though.

Oh I love to crochet!!!!


  1. Hi Linda,
    It is so bright and cheery! I can see why you could not wait to begin! Have fun crocheting! I never quite got the hang of it but my grandmother was fabulous at it!

  2. I love the colors and your work is the best. Reminds me of a Rainbow of Colors.


  3. I love the colors! They make you happy! Great job :)
