It's raining here today in Southern California- -and I LOVE rain!
I know I shouldn't say that as to some it seems almost sacrilegious to live in Sunny California yet love the rain. But I do. . .I love listening to it, smelling it, watching it- -all of it!!
It's only supposed to rain through today, so I must enjoy it. I thought taking a few photos and sharing them with you might help me preserve this wonderful weather! I'm hoping it rains for several more hours so that I can go to sleep tonight to the sound of raindrops falling on the awning outside my bedroom window. Oh how I love that sound!!
Another of my favorite things is crocheting. And since there are two very special little ones on the way into our family soon, I decided this grammie-to-be better get busy making some warm and cozy blankies! I decided to begin one of them using the vintage stripe pattern my friend Laura shared over at http://lovethebluebird.blogspot.com/2011/11/vintage-stripe.html . I love the vintage look of this pattern and it seems as if it's going to be pretty quick to work up. I'm using a yarn I found at Michaels. It's Naturally Caron Spa and the colors and texture are nice and soft and perfect for keeping a little one nice and snuggly warm.
Stay tuned. . .some very pretty baby vintage stripe pictures should be coming your way soon. . . . .
