Now, on to today's post...I've been working feverishly on my Chocolate Nut Brownie Shawl/Scarf.
It's coming along, but it was missing something...Color! And since I have a tendency to put colors together that no one else in the world would put together...case in point, exhibit A...
...my FUN-tastic Wuglyee Remnant Scarf! (The campaign to sell it is still on-going!! ^_^)...I thought that maybe I'd put another color on the shawl, but a color not so..."POW"...in your face!
And since my inspiration for the shawl is an actual chocolate nut brownie, I had to pick a color that would 'gel' with the feel of the inspiration...So, because I was crocheting this chocolate nut brownie shawl/scarf on a rainy day, say hello to the inspiration for a rainy day color to add to it....
It's gray...for a gray rainy day! :-) ...... And Chocolate Nut Brownies on a gray rainy day, with milk (that's represented by the white ^_^), are the stuff that make rainy days worth having......and worth crocheting a shawl/scarf for! :-)
Okay....so I know it's a 'stretch' just to have some inspiration, but hey! It was raining!!!! What did you want me to do?! Crochet a blanket inspired by 'gloominess' and 'darkness'?!!......Not this time. But hmmmm...... ^_^
I'm still working on it, and still trying to decide whether I'm going to keep it as just a shawl, or if I'm going to add buttons or something...I was gonna put one row of maroon on the other side, next to the edge. But I thought better of it...Besides, there's no way to work that maroon into my inspiration theme....unless I shed some blood trying to make it! LOL Don't worry!...I'm not that clumsy...or that desperate for inspiration!! ^_^
As you see, I have some more work to do with it. I'll show it to you when it's all done.....In the meantime, I've got some travel plans to make. Friday 'Date Night' is coming up pretty fast, and we've got a looooong way to travel this week!
Over the last few weeks we've traveled from Paris France to Brazil. This week we'll be going all the way to Ghana....in Africa!!
......I think we're gonna be some happy.....but tired travelers this week!! :-)
I'm looking forward to getting educated about Ghana though...and seeing, tasting, and hearing some of the country's food and music! :-] Hubby is too!
I know it's been a rough week for a lot of people. The news has been really tough! So, come and take a 'virtual' trip with us to Ghana tomorrow. Can't hurt!!
News of war and near disasters,
Lots of folks who are to blame;
A world that's ever slightly shifting,
and yet still remains the same.
You can turn off your T.V.,
Unplug your phone. No one would care.
But soon you'll need to be connected,
and the news will still be there!
We have to streamline all our focus,
no matter what we use,
and keep our minds on what's important.
Now, Baby, that's some news!
