:: updating ::

Happy Sunday everyone.
It's a great day to dip my fingers into all that yarn I bought recently. I was up late last night making new granny squares that look like they have been knitted, but......they are not. It's crochet! Just a simple slip stitch all the way around, over and over and ta da.....see how pretty!  love love love them.

My stacks are growing rapidly. It's so easy. Fun.
My plan is to make a new bed cover for Garrett's room with matching pillows. I think it's going to look great!

I've also been updating the house. That's what this blog post is really about if some of you were wondering about that title up there today. Spring is in the air, I can feel it so I thought I would get a early start inside and once spring is actually here I can focus on the outside. Flower beds and such!

Anyways, I've been painting the bathrooms and the kids bedrooms for the past two weeks and I have to say~ it's looking pretty good. Loving it!  I love it so much that I've even tackled my kitchen which was  really in need of an update. Lord have mercy did it need it!!!
Once it's all done I will so you some before and afters.

Oh and one more thing I updated was my cell phone. I've been toeing around this ole ancient thing for ages and now I have a new improved more updated phone with all the bells and whistle, fancy camera and such that I am now on Instagram!!!

If you would like to follow me, which I hope you do, you can find a link on my sidebar or just look for Sharibell47.

: : Yarn Love : :

how I love NEW yarn 
I feel like a kid in a candy store begging mom for just one more piece.
That's me when I see yarn.
 I have to have ....just one more color. Before I know it, I have a cart full.


No big plans as of yet on what to do with all these lovely colors for I am still quilting on this quilt.

I forgot how slow going it is when you do it all by hand.

It's a process that I truly love doing. I think about my grandmother a lot when I quilt. She used to make such lovely stitches, super tiny ones at that~ so neat and straight. I so wish I could do that. Mine are all over the place
Anyways....maybe I'll finish this up before the month is up.

That's if I don't dip my fingers into that pile of yarn up there!!!!


 Well, that's it for today. A quick pretty post of lovelies that I had to share.
I truly hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
The weather has been rather pleasant that I was actually able to open up some windows and let fresh air in. Along with a little bit of sunshine.....

It feels as if Spring is coming near.

Have a great week!
