Clothesline Dreams

Im believing Spring is just around the corner, and am visualizing warm laundry days spent outside, clothes on the line, gardening plans, spring renovations....
Maybe a new peg bag to hang outside for me , but because i have a while to go, for now this ones in the shop. Made with vintage chennille (is that how you spell it?), and some pretty fabric I got over here, a little white waffle weave fabric for liner, some ribbon, & some handstitched wool hearts. Ok. Im really dreaming of hot days ahead can you tell? Actually now thats beginning to sound like work, so while were working we may as well look at pretty things.
Actually all our snow is melted (in my yard anyways) and were planning some major renovations to our home this spring. Inspired by Joyce were "gonna take what we have and make it better" instead of buying something else where we would just go into extreme debt. We purchased this tiny place before I knew I was having a third child, and were really feeling mega cramped. So onward we go to make it liveable!

A few people asked for closeups of the paperbag photo memory albums so here's a vintage chicky one,
with some cute chicky and wagon co-ordinating tags. Its available here, and I think there are still 4 left to pick from.
I'll post a few of the others soon. I also found some great treasures while out thrifting that I want to share next time. Oh yes, and my new moo's!!!! I'm so pumped about all the granny square love going around blogland right now, because I can crochet (not a knitter, no matter how hard i try, im not co-ordinated enough-LOL ask my husband!), and iv'e always done these style blankets. This one Im making now will just be one on-going square building outwards. I don't like all the messy joining of sqaures,and hanging threads, there are enough with all this color changing already & im too lazy!

So I must go catch up some much needed blog inspiration so I don't fall back into my slumpy procrastination trap that i'm finally breaking out of. I think it had alot to due with that terrible lingering flu we all had that lasted for 3 weeks! BTW Did you see Pams fabulous Moo card holders in her Flickr? She also has an adorable free Starbabies pattern I would like to try on her blog!

Thanks for stopping by.

Love the bag - I want to touch it. But I DO NOT want to hang laundry.

I'm kind of thrilled about the crochet thing to - because I can do it! But everyone elses always seem to look better than mine.

Hi Angela, I have just started to crochet again after about 15 years of playing 'hide the hook' and I am still a bit wobbly. I started because of all the 'granny square' love going around as well. Can you tell me if I do a blanket like yours in the photo... do I increase the treble crochet (eg; 3ch,3tc,3ch....4ch,4tc,4ch) as I move towards the outside? I tried zooming in on your photo but it did'nt work lol.
Your peg bag is gorgeous. I have a single chenille bed spread in my stash.... I just cannot decide if I should keep it as is or chop it up for stuffies etc. What do you think?

The weather has been fantastic here the last few days. I put on a cotton dress over jeans today it was that good.

Your peg bag is great. Looking forward to be able to put washing out on the line to dry. Unfortuately all my pegs have snapped due to leaving them on the line all winter !

What an adorable peg bag. What a boost to look at when there is still snow on the ground in my neck 'o the woods!! So pretty, pink, and yummy!

What a cute peg bag! My great aunt used to have one that looked like a little girls dress. Haven't seen peg bags in years.

Lucky you~we still have snow...everywhere.
Your peg bag is gorgeous; I love it. And the crib quilt you made is adorable too. Frankly, I see no evidence of procrastination :-) It looks like you have been accomplishing so much, and it's all beautiful as always. Debbie

Cute, cute, double cute. Every thing is just charming!! That bag is cute enough for a purse. I have been meaning to make one of those paper bag memory books for quite sometime but haven't done it (yours is adorable). And crochet, well I always admire anyone who can do it, as I don't seem to have the gift.
