Granny square challenge week 22


First thank you all for your warm and supportive 
comments, mails etc.
It means a lot to me and helps accepting my situation.
Normal life also continues
our girls still go to school, have their play dates etc.
And that`s fine, I don`t want to let cancer take over my life completely.
So on this blog normal life also continues
and that means granny square challenge.

This week we have a pattern made by Melanie Stiles
called Springtime Square.
Here in the Netherlands spring seems far away
it is still very cold
maybe this pattern helps to get in the springtime spirit.

NOTE!
I had problems with the clusters,
I have tried them several times without success.
So I decided to make the clusters/bobbles
like we did in week 6 with granny bobble spiral.

Good luck, have fun and enjoy Easter.
