I'm here again with a New Blanket

Hi there my dear friends ... It's been almost a whole month since I have been here and so much has happened.
I have moved and we are so happy to finally be in our house...

I will try to show you a bit of our new nest soon ... We still have lots and lots of boxes everywhere. I'm trying to pace myself and be very careful so I don't get sick... I'm not that young anymore and I want to stay healthy even if it takes me six months or a year to unpack everything ... We are not going anywhere :)

In between unpacking boxes I started and almost finished a whole blanket this month... Can you believe I basically didn't do anything else this month, but crochet this blanket ???
My niece graduated from High School and I had decided I was going to make a blanket for each one of the nieces and nephews graduating from High School and she is the first one from this generation ( we have 2 older ones).

The thing is I didn't realize that she was graduating until a month before she was graduating ... So I had to hurry ... And this is what I did ... This simple double crochet stripped blanket.
I love it ... Simple but still elegant... The colors she likes and something modern and contemporary for a very unique, beautiful girl.

I hope she likes and I hope this blanket covers her with love and show her my love and how proud I'm of her accomplishments...

I probably took too many pictures, but I thought I show you a bit of the view we have been enjoying from our house every day ... We are so very blessed ... And I'm so very happy for what we have and where we are in our lives...

So happy to have you also and that you continue to come and "visit"me ...
Thank you ... Thank you.. Thank you ... For all your encouraging words, for waiting for me to come back and for being here to "see me again".

I hope you are having a fantastic summer :)


  1. I Taci. Congratulations on your new home! I am glad to hear you are planning to take your time with the unpacking! The blanket for your niece is lovely, and she will enjoy it for many years to come, knowing her Auntie loves her so much!
    Although I only got a little peek at your new home, I can already tell, I love it!
    Welcome back, you were missed!
    XO Kris

  2. Hello Taci the blanket is beautiful, made with such love as well. It will be very special to your niece. What an amazing view you have. I caught little glimpses of your new home cannot wait to see more! I know I'm so nosy :-) You are right to take unpacking slowly. You will get there. Take care. Anne x

  3. Beautiful blanket !!!

  4. Taci the blanket is gorgeous and I now that your niece will feel all of the love wrapped up in it. The pictures so far of your new home are fantastic. I can't wait to see the entire house. I know I'll be at Mandy's sometime in the next month or so before she moves. We'll have to get together, (and have a tour of the house?!) Thank you for being there for me when I need a friend.
    Blessings my sweet friend.

  5. Welcome Home, Taci :) The blanket you made for your niece is lovely; the view from your balcony is beautiful; and I am so glad you are pacing yourself in getting settled in your new home. Somehow you need to rest in the midst of you whirling schedule, and I am so impressed that you completed a blanket in a month! Blessings to you and yours, xx

  6. Taci, she is going to love it and I can not even imagine crocheting that beautiful blanket as you are so busy unpacking. From what I see your new house is amazing, I can not wait to see more.
    Sending you a hug,

  7. The blanket is gorgeous Taci and your niece will treasure it, for sure! I'm so happy for you that you finally moved into your new home, even if the unpacking is slow, and I wish you many blessings and years of happiness enjoying it and your new surrounds! xoJoy

  8. Your blanket is very nice and I'm sure your niece will love it. Congrats on getting moved into your new home, the view is amazing. I understand about the boxes, we still have plenty to unpack. Take care and enjoy your new home. Heather

  9. Taci, congrats on the new home! I am so looking forward to seeing it.. maybe when Betsy is in town? I love your blanket and I hope your niece appreciates all the effort you put into it. It reminds me of an old wool woven Indian blanket a bit.. very classy and wonderful. Do pace yourself and don't over do. I'm very happy for you. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


  10. Congratulations with your new house hope you all are happy for it. I wish you lots of happy hours in your new home.
    Beautiful blanket you have made.

  11. Love your new blanket, Taci! I want to make one in gray(s) some day. Looks like you have a wonderful view from your house!

  12. Hi there, thanks for the lovely comment on my blog. Your blanket is lovely - it looks so cosy and snuggly!

  13. The blanket is beautiful and I adore the shade of grey you used. I love grey, it's such an elegant neutral. And the views from your deck are wonderful! I hope you're settling in to your new house ok. x
