Cheerful Friday

"Happy Friday" everybody! How was your week?

Mine was quite busy as always, but there were many happy moments thrown in. Finally the weather has been on the brighter and warmer side. We had temps in the upper 50's and 60's. Yay, Happy Dance. So I was quite shocked that they are forecasting snow for Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. I am so done with all that. But the weather is what it is and before long we will be complaining about the Heat.

But this week I needed something to get me in the mood for Spring ad I wanted bright and sunny colors around me. Since my main living area is mostly decorated around my coca-cola collection, red, white and black, I felt the need to add some color in one of the other rooms. So since I am working on redoing my crafts room, I decided that will be the room it will all happen in. I want to see nothing but bright, fun colors. Living in a Rental one is always a bit handicapped  regarding paint choices etc., but I am finally allowed to changed the wall color and that will be happening very shortly. Looking forward to that, as you can imagine.

But coming back to what I have made this week to make it more cheery. Without further ado:


Something cheerful for the table

This one is made from variegated yarn.
When I picked up the skein I thought
the colors looked brighter,
but it still turned out nice.

How is that for Bright?

Or this one?

A little close up

And one more

All three together

And than I thought I would see
how it would look with some decoration
on it.

Not bad, if I do say so myself

Well they have cheered me up very much and I now know I really want and need more color around me. So I foresee more color in my near future.

For now I would like to wish all of you a blessed and quiet weekend from my neck of the woods!


  1. Very Nice and cheerful Erika .. love the colors.. throw in some bright sunny yellow and your all set..LOL.. no seriously love them.. nice pattern too.. I dont do much the thin threads since my hands cramp up so much with small things and thin things.. go figure. I started on a corner to corner afghan ( baby blanket) not enough yarn of the same brand or kind to do anything else.. LOL with all my yarn I have .. have a great day.. hugs Mausie

  2. These are very pretty and cheerful looking - what type yarn did you use for these? Cotton?

  3. These are real fine art! Congrats with the result!

  4. Very cheery bursts of colour for your room! Definitely better to look at than grey winter skies...Chrissie x

  5. I'm thinking you could also use the variegated thread on the inside motif with the solid on the outside or vice versa. They are very pretty.

  6. they certainly are bright and cheerful, great way to jazz up a room

  7. They're all so pretty and cheery, I really like them.

  8. Muy lindos tus trabajos, muy coloridos, me gustaron.
    Un saludo desde Chile
