Hi there & welcome to Annie's Place. A place inspired by and named after my late Grandmother Annie. Somewhere I can be creative, and share my love for all things handmade. I like nothing better than sitting with hook & yarn, crafting something home spun & completely unique, or rustling up some yummy baked goodies. I live in a town with a beautiful embankment, situated on the River Great Ouse. You may know me as CosyKitty on Ravelry. Why not stop a while.....?!!

Blogiversary & Teeny Weeny Granny Square Love

Hey there lovely readers, November sure is whizzing past and it has come to my attention that this lil' ole blog of mine has reached it's first birthday!! Wow, what a year it has been! I've received tremendous benefit from embarking on this journey. Having the opportunity to share a little part of my world with you has been an incredibly uplifting experience. 

I want to thank each and every person who has thought to drop by over these last 12 months, and for every kind word written. I'm overwhelmed by the interest that has been shown in Annie's Place, and hope you will continue to visit with me when time allows. I've rustled up some celebratory cupcakes, do help yourself to one......

This last few days I've felt in need of something easy peasy to work on, an instant colour fix if you will. So what could be better than hooking up some oh so simple, straightforward, itsy bitsy two round granny squares, joining them as you go. 

Uncomplicated is my mantra this week, and I think this project fits the bill perfectly don't you?. I'm seeing a rather jazzy cushion cover in my future. These happy little multi-coloured squares are a pleasure to crochet, and the tessellated effect that's produced is so instantly gratifying. You really should give them a try!

I hope any grey days are interspersed with 
many sunny moments, wherever you are 
reading this in the world today. 

Back soon
