Flower Power and Grand Girl Love


My favorite little shop in the woods, Rose Path Weaving, is trying out some new cotton yarn.  I am mad about the colors!  So, I volunteered to give it a test drive with the Flower Pillow pattern from Lucy of Attic 24 (round two of this little treasure of a pattern... for me, that's the highest praise to do something more than once).  LOVE IT!! 


AND, my friend, Laura at Beehive Rugs, was having a Children's Crochet class Saturday at Rose Path!  Two of my Little Angels did an amazing job of learning... and, Miss Laura did an amazing job of teaching!   It warmed my heart to bear witness to their sweet interaction.  Laura is very gifted teacher.

 
Ryleigh was VERY serious about this business!  She didn't even stop for snacks!  INTENT!  And, I loved it!
 
 
Karsyn was determined to get a tiny purse out of this effort!
 
 
However, the effort was so great she did need a little break... and snacks!  Soooo much fun! 
 
I loved the way they ran from color to color, texture to texture, design to design in the yarn shop... just like the rest of us do! 
 
The love of color... it runs deep. 
 
A special thank you to their little Momma for bringing them over so I could enjoy such a delightful day with all of them!  I hate I don't have a picture of Little Lady!  She is always a TREAT!  They hold their Noni's heart in their tiny little hands.  I am blessed indeed.

What a beautiful yarn shop!! Your little cushion is lovely and I hope that you enjoyed making it and that the yarn turned out to be nice and worth the shop having in stock. Hope you have a great week and that all is progressing well. xx

I am jumping on a plane to fly out and visit and of course go to that amazing store, it looks fantastic. Love the little ones learning to crochet, oh my goodness they are precious.
Hugs to you and good luck using that beautiful new yarn,

Debbie said...

I just love this. They are both just precious (and very beautiful, too!). My favorite shot of all is the next to the last one with the two heads together trying to create that purse. Of course, sleeping beauty in the last one is a close second.

Wow. Your girls are really talented. Both my mother and grandmother tried to teach me to knit and crochet and I ended up in a huge not :)

You are right...the love of colors runs deep.

Thanks so much for your encouraging words on my Wake up Call post.

This is adorable.....These are the kinds of things that I love to see children involved in...sports are great, but I do believe that we can teach them so much more. Absolutely awesome that they are being taught such great talents...
Blessings to you all...
