crochet cover-up

A pile of squares,

of the granny variety!

Joined into a tube,

and voila! one granny square lampshade cover!

It slips on and off easily for laundering.

The tissue box was looking rather plain and ordinary also,

but not for too long!

Crocheted rows of colour soon jazzed it up!

And being the ninth of June, means that twenty years ago today, I was married.

I was nineteen and so was he.

It’s been one big roller-coaster ride!

  12. I love the idea for the lamp shade. Such possibilities! Congratulations on twenty years of marriage. These days, that is to be commended. This year I will celebrate 34 years. Mazel Tov

  13. I love that you showed something for the home. My groom and I of 27yrs (as of this Sept) are moving into a home that we are currently buying. It was built in 1977 and still has original materials. We will slowly remodel room by room. I can’t wait to put these granny lampshades in my new (old) home!

  14. Happy Anniversary!

    Wishing you as many more years as the stitches that fly through your hands, that your days together may be as colourful as your creations and as close-knit and comfy as your granny rugs!

    Keep those creations coming (by the way, where DO you get the time?!!)

  15. Apparently, “the granny” is back in full force. lately I’ve been seeing crazy granny dresses, aprons, afghans, lamp shades (per you), and granny rugs coming out of the woodworks. While I’ve always been a fan of the granny, I think a fancier granny woks better for more modern day stuff! Love the ideas and pics tho!

  16. Great milestone. Happy Anniversary!

  17. the lamp shade is awesome! your work is so neat. i love granny squares and am in the process of making a scrap granny square blanket right now, but my squares aren’t nearly as neat and straight as yours. you are so talented!

  18. Congratulations and Happy Anniversary! Twenty years is an accomplishment you can both be proud of!

    Love the granny squares lampshade!

  19. Congratulation Sarah!!! In today’s world, you are going against the norm, keep it up and God will continue to bless you and your husband<=o]

  20. La tua manualità è anche creatività!!!I colori ben assortiti fanno dei tuoi lavori dei capolavori!!!

  21. Sarah, I wish you a very Happy Anniversary!

    Thank you for continuing to inspire us with all the brilliance of your colors.

    (Hoping that you are feeling better and better as this year progresses, too.) xo
