Granny Square Crochet Bag

My daughter is heading to dance camp next week and my current knitting project was becoming tedious, so I decided to make something quick and colorful for her…a granny square bag for her shoes. It is supposed to be lined, but my track record isn’t so great with that. And she doesn’t seem to care. And I have already started another bag. Bah. The instructions for the granny square bag can be found here.

Tea Time

We are at week three with our Tea Time and Poetry or as my daughter calls it- Poetreets! The kids helped me pick up special cookies for this week and we had one of their friends and my mom join us 🙂 My mom even brought strawberries and a new mug to share.

We picked fresh flowers from the yard and added a candle to the table this week.

My son read the camel story from “Just So Stories” to get us started and then we moved on to the poetry and chatting. It is really neat to hear the conversations that the poems spark. I an really enjoying these tea times and I am glad I found Brave Writer!
