Springtime Crochet-a-Long "Lite" | Plain Granny Squares Done

The project I picked for the
Springtime Crochet-a-Long "Lite" 
is coming along. 

All those colorful middles are now surrounded by white.

39 plain granny squares with colorful middles are finished:
This is how they look with the blossom motifs!

These colors make me feel happy!

Now it's time to start making the side triangles in white.

The pattern I am using is the Blush Blossom Pom-Pom Pillow

I am going to make a Bed Runner.
(Perhaps with pom poms.)

  1. I love all your new photos of your flowery squares and the white squares with a small coloured centre make such a lovely contrast! Here is a link to my latest blog entry with the spring wreath I made decorated with your pattern of the flowers:
    I shall look forward to seeing your finished crochet project. It's looking beautiful already!
