On a Sunny Day


I woke up suddenly
in the middle of the night,
I heard some noises
and they gave me a fright.

I drew up the blanket
and buried my head,
and I'm never ever looking
under the bed.


Featured: one new blanket
and two adorable nephews.

Such yummy colors in the blanket! And sweet little fingers and toes! I'm smiling and not worrying about what's under the bed. Most likely only dust.

VeggieMummy said...

The blanket is gorgeous, as are your nephews. I'm currently making a granny square blanket with a bag of scraps I found in a cupboard. I can tell that it's been a while since I crocheted because my wrist is really hurting! :o) xx

I am so excited I stumbled across your blog! I also love to crochet but I'm still very much learning. I am looking forward to seeing what you create. That little blanket is so cute and colorful, I love it!

Patricia said...

Ha, I know that feeling - lots of noises in the night around here :)
New blanket is gorgeous, you have such an eye for colour. And the little boys are just so cute!

The scariest thing under my bed is probably dust bunnies lol! Those sweet nephews are adorable. Love the colors in your afghan. So pretty.
Have a great week.

The blanket is lovely with all those bright colours - perfect for hiding away from the monsters under the bed. Those two nephews are the stars, though - such sweet darlings.

Your nephews are having fun under the blanket, Amalia. And this is one of the prettiest blankets I've seen, with such vibrant colors. My granddaughter loves it when her uncle puts the blanket above her head - she giggles every time. : )

Love the blanket with all these legs sticking out:) Nephews are great - when they're young they are cute, and when they get older they can help you with things like moving heavy objects, etc. A lovely share of your life with All Seasons, Amalia. Hope you are doing well yourself too? Have a terrific week!

When my grandmother died, I inherited all her yarn. I made 4 granny square afghans to give to her great-grand-children using the yarn.

The new blanket is so lovely and the kids adorable! You make me ashamed that I have not been productive at all this year. Better things ahead I hope.

Amalia, as adorable as the kids are, they would not be allowed to play with my handiwork! If I ever crocheted a blanket, I'd have to frame it and hang it on the wall--because it would probably be the only one I ever made, it would take me so long! :D

Diane said...

Greetings Amalia, your blanket is so pretty and your nephews are certainly having a lot of fun playing under it.

Hugs Diane

Tom said...

...my granddaughters love to cover up with a blanket too!

Love the colours. My mother loved making granny square afghans until she was in her mid-90s. I have so many wonderful ones, but they are almost all single colour ones. - Margy
