Diagonal color change

Usually granny square consists of loads of colorful yarns that are changed after each row. But I propose a different approach!
Lets change the color in the corner ... so you would get a granny square that looks like this, or that, or ... ;)

Lacy granny square

I present to you the newest block in the town!
Lets welcome the Lacy granny square ;)

It is fun, simple and supercute if I may say so myself :)
And it will be a great addition to my BigBrightBlanket.

The gifts of pay-it-forward-giveaway

Jesus himself said "It is more blessed to give than to receive" and I have tested his hypothesis through my PayItForwardGiveaway (if you are interested -> announcement and winners) :) 
I found it very rewarding to make the presents and it was so exciting to wait for reaction on the other end!

Dare to dream!

It's almost midnight here in my home town .. and I am finally getting to my new years resolution. This is the first year I am setting up goals for crafting! how exciting!!!

so here comes the list ->
1st and most important - make a quilt! I have been admiring the quilts whole my life I think it's finally time to make my own! :)
2nd on the same note - make a patchwork bag to finally mach the name of my blog ;)
3rd cook more (and better)! my attempt of roast for new years dinner was quite pathetic...
4th blog more!!! I have so many ideas I wish to share, but somehow something always gets in the way ... because usually I want to make tutorial or at least something useful with scheme, but that takes time and my little man (as well as the big one) always comes first ... writing this I can already smell the pretext, I hate pretext I should just stop whining already and do the things I want to! (this will count as 5th and will be written on my personal goals list as well!)
6th finish the Big Bright Blanket (I love working on It so I won't be much disappointed if it'll grow to fill the new years resolution for 2014 as well)
7th finish the blanket of hearts till summer (first goal with deadline .. o my, o my ..)
and last but not the least - be creative in all aspects of my life! this will include all the small projects that will just happen as the year unfolds :)

and on this note I say CRAFTY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!! and may your dreams come true ;)
