Nice Piles (mostly)

1. Granny Squarelets
When is a granny square a squarelet? For some reason, now entirely unfathomable, I decided I was crafting small scale grannies when I started crocheting along with Pip. The thinking was rooted somewhere in the decision to kit out the wooden doll cradle with small funky blankets and the like. A decision beyond logic, what with all that joining pain to come.



2. Top Secret Pile
(My lips are sealed).



3. Autumny Goodness Pile:
That’s not to say that every pile of crispy leaves is filled with goodness. I took great issue when the Mr told the kids not to kick around in the leaves in case of dog, well, poo. Leaf kicking is what autumn is all about, right? I reminded him that, generally, Aussies are pretty good at picking up after their pooches, (he was born in a land far away, where sometimes it’s just too cold to stop to do anything), then promptly jumped in a leaf pile and kicked up a whole big lot of freshly-made badness.



4. Autumny Goodness Non-Pile:
Absolutely no badness in here (thankfully).



Have a lovely weekend!

I'm with One Flew Over- that tope Secret pile looks delicious! I love the theme, the leaves, the everything- and the kicking of the leaves looks like such fun. I'm glad there were no surprises :-) xx

The granny squares look very nice!! I like the colour combination! Next week (after my exams-yay!!) I would like to start a blanket..just in time for summer..but I am not sure yet whether to chose granny squares or do it all in one piece. But I can't wait how your creation will turn out...looking forward to pictures!!

Lovely colours in those squares ....and all that weaving in and joining up will be therapeutic! As indeed is playing with autumn leaves ..... of the better sort .

Nice piles! I especially love the autumn leaves. Things are already starting to heat up around here for Summer. Although, there are many things that I look forward to about the hot months, those crisp leaves are making me a tad envious!

We've been getting into a spot of leaf kicking here too- must try to remember to carry a camera with me next time we head down the driveway...

You have been very busy! Great granny squares!
Must say (regarding the jumping and kicking of leaves) have always loved that activity myself without a thought of Doggie surprises or badness! However, after reading about your unfortunate findings I may have to take precaution!

Autumn brings back memories though..always reminds me of Bright (the place)..do you remember going there with Nanna and Pa as kids?
