idle hands

pretty hook

i love sitting and crocheting as much as i possibly can. I'm not sure what I used to do with my idle hands before I took up crochet.
eat more?

I bought fresh peonies while at the market. a sweet gift for myself from Mr. Handsome
I like buying special things like flowers and thanking him later for it. He gave up buying flowers for me a while back. I am a lover of only a few certain kinds of flowers :)

Yesterday I noticed they were on their way out. I decided a spur of the moment photoshoot was in order!

peonies in season

nothing like celebrating some time off with a little fun playtime.

my lovely work area:

play time

so very happy to take the time and be perfectly quiet. Crocheting my little heart away. Gazing at a pretty bouquet of flowers, making a lovely gift out of soft yarn. softly and quietly following the rhythm of my crochet hook.

i'm a crochet kinda girl

i need more of these moments :)

The peonies are now gone, my project is near it's finish and I am so thankful I got to share them with you too.

sweet thoughts to you,

Those colors are totally stunning! That last picture gives me a great idea for my 52 week selfie project too. :) Glad I'm not the only one crocheting in the dead heat of summer.

Your crochet project is so pretty! Did you have those peonies in mind when you picked the colors? :) I'm crazy about peonies...I'm so happy the previous owner of our house planted them! I've taken so many hipstamatic pics of them!
