Monday Rainbows And Treasuries!

     Hello, Hard Workers! :-] I say that because it's Monday, and I know you must be either hard at work now, or winding down from a hard Monday at work. And that's true whether you work inside or outside the home!!...Me?!....Yep! I've been hard at work today too, with minor stops for a cup of soup, a cup of hot chocolate, and an episode of 'Matlock'! ^_^
     What I've been hard at work on is my temporarily lost, but re-found again, rainbow baby blanket! :-] I started back on it after I finished my latest hat. I'll show it to you in a minute, but know what's coming! ^_^ ...more Etsy treasuries!!...

     The above treasury included another one of my suit boutonnieres...

     ...and a few other cute items too. Like this wedding ring holder jute heart (below)...

    ...and this beautiful photograph! :-) ...

     I'm originally from Georgia, and had family that lived in Savannah, so this door (above) brought back some fond memories. :-] And made me wonder if the road in front of it was cobbled too! ^_^

     There were so many cute items in this treasury (below) ...

     ...that I decide to just share my crochet hat...

     ...and this cute necklace...

     ...and let you go over and check out the rest of the treasury on your own! :-) *Okay...truth. My fingers are sore!! LOL I'm trying to hurry this tap...tap...tapping along!! ^_^ *

     Before I leave though, let me show you some rainbow baby blankets!!! :-) ...

     The three baby blankets above are not mine though! :-] They're just here for inspiration. Inspiration, so that I keep going on 'my' rainbow baby blanket!! O_O I need the inspiration fingers are sore!...and this blanket seems to be taking for......ever!!!!! O_O
     Now I remember why I put it down the last time!! ^_^ The good thing this time though, is that it's almost done. Only about eight more rows...or go!! Another row of purple, and then six rows of white!...

      I'm calling it a rainbow sweater baby blanket because that's what it feels like...a warm sweater. :-]

     It's thick with color and yarn!...You can see in the photos how many colors are in it!!...but you can't see how much yarn I've already used on it. About $35.00 worth!! O_O Not to mention the hours of time!...How in the world will I ever price it to move?!!!...

     Considering how heavy this 'baby' is too, and that I don't charge for shipping to the United States, I foresee a nightmare of me trying to figure out how much to charge for it....*sigh*...Whatever!!!...First I have to finish crocheting it!! ^_^ So I'm off to try to do that right now! :-)
     Enjoy the rest of you Monday, Workers! :-) ... And as some inspiration for you...remember....the weekend is just around the corner!...and a block or two! Ha! Ha!


I'm feeling butterfly-ish.
Wanna flutter...move real slow.
Wanna wander...mind and body.
Not be fast, and 'on the go'.

I'm feeling like I need
a quiet day to hang around.
Have everything wrapped up,
and just block out surrounding sound.

I'm feeling butterfly-ish.
Wanna lay in bed till noon.
Wanna have some time to morph.
Need a tree and a cocoon.

Tomorrow they'll be time
to change and modify.
To spread my wings, add color,
like a brand new butterfly.
