A Conversation

 

Yellow says to pink:
"you're a fizzy, happy drink."
Pink smiles at yellow:
"you're a cheery kind of fellow."


Featured: A new blanket,
my big winter project,
finished just in time to go
into the cupboard until autumn.

I love it! That will keep you nice and cosy next winter. I made a similar one last year with all my scraps of acrylic yarn; it was a great stashbuster. xx

Patricia said...

Ooh, Amalia, what a gorgeous rug, in my favourite pinks and yellows. And a poem to match, what bliss :) xxx

Ela said...

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Pink and yellow, happy colors to keep you warm. :-)

Maria said...

Such a lovely crocheted blanket, Amalia...the colours are beautiful. I hope all is well in your part of the world. Because I’ve heard nothing of your country in our media, I’m hoping that COVID-19 isn’t too big a problem for you all. Australia has lockdowns, and a fair bit of unemployment and crazy things like panic buying of toilet paper, hand sanitizers, pasta and flour.

Looks nice and cozy and very pretty colors.
Happy New Week.
Hugs,
Kris

Beautiful waterlily! You surprised me with your thumbnail, because I did not realize you had black curly hair ... I thought it may be an American Native post:) Doesn't it feel accomplished after having finished such a beautiful and long project of crocheting or knitting? In my mind I can see it grace your bed this late fall and winter:) Your bedroom will look wonderful! Many thanks for sharing your poem and the blanket with All Seasons! Enjoy a lovely summer!
