We had a little challenge this week – to make something inspired by a favorite Summer Memory.  Well – one of the best summer memories I have was back in Junior High-ish.  We had a bit of a family reunion out in North Carolina.  My Dad’s whole family was there and we rented condos on the beach.

One day it just rained and rained.  So of course there wasn’t much to do.  Since it was a condo, we really didn’t have anything with us to keep busy because we’d spent most of our time out on the beach.  So my stepmother had an idea and we all trekked into town to a craft store of some type.  She purchased hooks and yarn and we all learned to crochet!  She already knew how and proceeded to teach us all.   I’ve since made several afghans in my day – although none in recent years – but it will be something that will stick with me forever!

Nina Brackett’s Fine Furnishings and Fine Furnishings Additions was perfect for this idea – there is a little blanket in the set!  So I used a bit of paper from the 6×6 Nook and Pantry pad and got to work!
