joining squares

Hello Dear Friends!
I hope you are all well.I had a total thyroidectomy last week-end and I am now enjoying some house rest.I have watched so many French movies and did nothing. Absolutely nothing. When I started to feel better, I started to feel bored and I joined some squares that I had crocheted earlier.
So far, so good...
Have a lovely week-end!

spring

Hello Dear Friends!
The weather is so nice for the last couple of days; my garden is in full bloom.
The freesias...

Tangerine blossoms leave their sweet smell in the air....
There is colour everywhere...

I am in a very good mood not just because the weather is good or the house is tidy or the garden is gorgeous but  because I finally had a chance to take photos of my solid granny square blanket . Ta-daa!
Now it has taken its place in Mr. Teenager's room. He is so happy about it!
Have a lovely day!

DOILIES

Hello Dear Friends!
Last week was just about doilies! I suddenly felt the need to crochet some doilies.

I was admiring some white doilies on pinterest but I preferred to crochet them in colour...
I made one, then another, then another...
Now I have eight doilies of various sizes and I don't know what to do with them.Any ideas?
Have a wonderful week-end! Gaia.

busy days...

Hello Dear Friends!
My Little Man has been so busy lately that there has been no time to crochet.

He was pretty tired from all the extra work but it was worth it!

When I tell people that we cannot meet and have coffee or a chat because My Little Man has a very busy after-school programme, they think I am joking at first. Then, they realize I am not joking. I am keeping him busy in a healthy way; the alternative is staying at his grand-mother's watching T.V. 
I have to confess that this busy programme is consuming me.I drive him and wait till he finishes if the distance is long.I have started a Masters degree programme myself as well; so I will have to be studying a lot this coming couple of years. Please do not forget that I have a full time job too. So I am now feeling a bit depressed, proud, determined, tired etc... I guess I will not be around too much in near future. But I still have to show you my finished solid granny square blanket.Till then, good-bye!

I am working on the border...

This crochet border is for the solid granny square blanket I started way back in 2013. I started to join the squares in March 2013, then forgot about it totally.

I hope to be back with a ta-daa! post soon but life is so hectic these days; I cannot be sure to finish...
I will post some photos of our Egypt trip in February. Enjoy!

A New Baby Blanket

Hello Dear Friends!
My cousin's wife is expecting a baby girl, so I decided to crochet a blanket for her. The baby is due April which gives me time to crochet and ship it to Australia. This will be my first experience to ship anything abroad.

Today is a bright sunny day, my Little Man's horse riding lesson is cancelled so it will be a day to relax rather than run here and there.I will be enjoying home hopefully.
Have a beautiful Sunday!
Gaia.
