The Ginny’s Grannies Sampler Blanket CAL will take place throughout 2020. We will be making a granny square sampler blanket in rainbow colors. The blanket has a fun layout inspired by a blanket from an old Better Homes & Gardens book my Grammy Ginny gave me.

Ficstitches Yarns – Combine two of your favorite hobbies.

Ficstitches Yarns kits say they combine two of your favorites – crochet and reading – but I say it’s three; you can’t forget getting pretties in the mail! After all, what could be more awesome then pretty crochet goodies and a good read in the mail? Maybe if they were delivered with chocolate and a hot beverage by a cute and fluffy dog. However, this is reality, so no delivery puppies.

Stick around ’til the end of this post for a chance to win a Spring 2020 kit – Giveaway ends February 9, 2020.

Hanging bag holders are a great way to help the planet and stay organized. When you end up with plastic bags, keep them in your holder and reuse them when you can. It seems like no matter how much I try to avoid using plastic bags, they always sneak into my house, so this hanging bag holder is quite handy.
