I haven’t misplaced my calendar. I fell in love with these earthy colors (see, I don’t only do bright colors ) and it all reminds me of November in New England. Frost on the edges of brown leaves as you crunch through them in the woods. Gray skies that smell a bit of snow. The greys and dark colors of the bare trees, the rustle of leaves as a squirrel scurries away, scolding me and Zip for intruding. Snuggling up with a cup of cinnamon coffee or hot chocolate.
I started this in the summer, when it was very hot and November weather seemed so far away. This post has been sitting since then, as whenever I could take photos it was rainy and cloudy. Today, it was a bit cloudy but I took some photos just the same.
I am not sure how I will arrange these off centered granny squares, but I really like them. I wanted a quilt-y look with the hombre yarns being the patterned fabric.
These squares were made like the Mitered Granny Square, with a larger center square with a different color border, only 2 ‘half rounds’ that make the miter part, and then two rounds for the final border.
I can smell the leaves just looking at them.
