At the beginning of the week I was playing around with my little metal hooky stick and some very lovely colourful woolly stuff. I was supposed to be busying myself making a few more summer garden granny squares with some green grassy borders but somehow I got a little side tracked along the way.
I started making my flowery circles with creamy coloured middles and instead of surrounding them with their grassy borders I decided that I would play about with the colours a little bit. For some reason those little creamy circles surrounded by the bright colours reminded me a bit of an artists paint palette or paintbox ~ I'm not sure why!
It then set me thinking that for all of us like minded crocheters out there that a crochet hook is very similar indeed to a paint brush and that the colourful woolly stuff is a little bit like the paint. I was very pleasantly surprised at just how different the same little granny square could look just by using different colours.

And a completely different look here altogether ~ a rather colourful creamy concoction ::
All this playing about with different colours just reminded me of what a wonderful medium that hook and yarn are. I can definitely see a colourful woolly paintbox cushion cover being made from these colourful little granny squares too ~ just the right kind of cushiony loveliness to brighten up my comfy settee.
Think it must be time now for a cup of tea and maybe a biscuit or two ~ I hope that you all have a very lovely weekend and look forward to catching up with all your blogs next week :O) xx
