O Glorious Pinpricks of Light

Standard

Happy Wednesday!

The sun has come out again, after days and days of flooding gray clouds, constant dripping, and dank, bleary chill.

Perfect crochet weather. πŸ™‚

A sweet friend requested today’s featured project. She spotted it online and simply had to have one for her mother.

I finished just in time​, as Mother’s Day is right around the corner!

The best part? Her mother’s name is Star. ❀

The pattern is a dream. Simple enough to remember after the first few rounds, but such a clever desgn: both the peak and the valley stitch are the designer’s personal creation. I love it, and will definitely be making more.

It was a delight to make and my friend loved it. 

I loved discovering a great new pattern.

Happy hooking!

It’s been a dozen days of no crochet!

The US Capitol

I’ve been a-travelin’.

Authentic Philly Cheesesteaks for lunch, yum!

I joined our local school and took a little trip to our nation’s capitol for spring break. You haven’t lived until you’ve taken a seventeen-hour bus ride with a class full of eighth-graders…

My daughter and I had a wonderful time.

Gettysburg, PA

The weather was chilly some days, but the crisp blue skies made for great pictures. And we had one nice day in there, too.

The Liberty Bell

The history was so meaningful. The last time I visited, I was thirteen myself! So it was fun to go with my daughter at the same age.

Smithsonian Air and Space

Now I am back, recovered, and caught up on household things…On to finishing my chromium star project for a friend! I just love how it is working up.
