me and my Nanny McPhee

While we haven't had television in our home for
nearly two years, we do have favorite movies that we
occassionally find in our letterbox from Netflix...
and we view them on a portable dvd player
with an 8" screen...
...and last summer while watching Nanny McPhee,
I was smitten with the granny square afghan on Chrissy's
bed. I grabbed the camera and began snapping photos
trying to catch as many shots of the colors as possible...
I gathered the wool and then set it aside so to wait for
my courage and crochet skills to catch up with me and I
worked on this blanket for Sarah...
last week after watching Nanny Mcphee again...
and having come across this granny sqaure tutorial...
I gave it a go and ....
so begins the journey of stitching
my very own Nanny Mcphee.
