but why I made it, examining the thoughts that accompany creativity and the act of making."

Summer Sprinkler, Swings, & Squares

Young friends came to play today!
Great fun!

The cherry tree was strangely quiet
 after a week of chirping celebration
while the birds feasted on this year's cherry crop .

And I completed some more squares for my Granny Square blanket.

What is new with you?

Hugs from Gracie :)


  1. Gracie, looks like a lovely day. I am having a quiet one today, some tea, the paper to read. Some gardening and then maybe a row or two of knitting.

  2. Hello Gracie..hope you day is well..looks like you all had a wonderful day..That cherry tree is HUGE..and beautiful! I am up early today...all the rain woke me up! Raining like crazy here in Louisiana, and has been for 3days now! Needed to do some shopping, so if the weather slows down just a bit...we are headed to the" WalMart" and then this evening I have to finish my bunnies for my friend and I am in the mood to make a quilt so I might try and find some fabric and do that and give my wrist a little rest from all the circles that I have been twisting and turning!
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Sorry this posted twice on my end..Don't know what happen..then Meredith also posted again after mine..crazy computers!

  3. Sounds like the perfect lazy days of summer! I am having my Knitty Biddies here today for lunch and knitting/crochet. We always have a wonderful time!!!
    We had lovely rains storms all night long. Very unusual for us. Very hot and humid. Ugh...the air is already buzzing here!

  4. Hi Gracie! Looks like a fun summer day for you and yours. Say - your blog looks so different, what did you do? All your blog links are gone.. wah! I will email you and we can set up a lunch date or a visit. I'm off to swim soon. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  5. Gracie~
    Happy Friday! Your sprinkler looks SO wonderful--I could have used it earlier this week. Love your granny squares:) Keep up the wonderful work!
    Wishing you a peaceful weekend.

  6. It looks as though you had a really lovely summers day Gracie. Not many of those here at the moment. It's rain, rain and more rain. This morning not too bad (Sat) but it has gone darker now. I'm off to a concert this evening with my Auntie. Anne x

  7. Aw, it looks like a great time was had by all! I intend to have quiet day today...perhaps a bit of sewing and maybe some knitting x x

  8. What a beautiful summery post, how generous of you to let the birds feast on your cherries. I used to have an old apple tree that the 'starlings' feasted in. :) xxx
