sailing and crochet

 Summer is nearing to it's end, i can feel it in the air even if we still have warm and sunny days. Hubby and i were spending several days at the boat last week end and we had a wonderful time doing a little sailing and swimming in the lake. Monday, as you can see, was grey, windy and a bit on the chilly side. I loved sitting on the dock, working on my giant granny blanket, admiring the view, watching the flock of ducks and and the heron couple flying close by. Autumn is almost here and i am already feeling the nostalgy of long lazy summer days.
I am almost done with my blanket and i just love the wonderful colors. It is big and heavy and feels super cozy. I will be posting next week with some new pictures. In the meantime, i must start packing ang get ready for a new week end of sailing....and crocheting a new project ?

                        ♥ Wishing you all a most beautiful sunny week end  ♥

I absolutely adore the colours you've used in this blanket, so wonderful. I love the setting for the photos too, they really make the colours come alive. Wow, I'm jealous (in a good way!) You asked a question on my blog about my Etole Fleurs wrap (ages ago) and I'm finally here to let you know if was Debbie Bliss 'Andes' yarn that I used. I'll update my blog too. Thanks for popping to see me and I hope you come by again. I'm definitely going to keep tabs on you too! ♥
