Attempting Crochet. . .

My good friend, Melissa, is helping me delve into the world of crochet. My next thing to tackle will be granny squares to make an afghan similar to this one in the movie Nanny McPhee. I absolutley love this one! The colors they used were stunning. Sorry about the pics. :) I had to pause the movie and take these myself.

Here's what I've been working on so far, not related to the afghan. Thank you, Melissa. I hate to tear it out, but I likely will.

Time for a new deck. . .

We're going to redo our deck from the floor up pretty soon, and I'm wondering if any of you fine folks out there in blogland have a railing anything like these.

I plan to use these kind of panels, and make sure they continue horizontally, like the ones on the steps do, and we plan on framing them in like the picture below, with less fuss.

And this deck railing. {I'm not a friend of theirs, so I wasn't able to save the pic.}

What do you think? I really like it, because it will enable me to see down into the yard with a clear view of the kiddos. :)

Snow, Glorious Snow!

Well, I can't really say it was glorious. It was only about 2 inches, and it was beautiful. We're use to getting more, but we're thankful to even have this come through. It's been a super cold winter, with very little snow. Maybe next year. Did you get any snow?
