Flashback Friday – An Easter Gift For children (& adults)

0501lg

For this Flashback Friday, I chose to re-post my free to print-off coloring pictures in honor of Easter. I hope you all or your children enjoy them. 🙂

Here’s a gift from me to you. It’s a few coloring pictures from my collection (that I drew and had posted on my ex-website many many years ago.)

I hope you’ll print these pictures off for a child or children, to color to celebrate this special weekend.

Before you print these off:
Click on the images to open a separate picture.
Do a print preview to check to see if you may need to set it to ‘landscape’ to print these off properly.
At the top of your browser on the far left hand side choose ‘File’, then choose ‘Print Preview’
At the top of the print preview page is an option for ‘portrait’ or ‘landscape’
Try both and choose the one that fits the picture to the page best.

Happy Easter my Dear Blogging Buddies & Readers!

Super Solid Granny Square

While blog surfing I came across a blog called ‘Sparkly Toad’. I was so happy to see that Julie has made a pattern for a solid granny square. I’ve always wanted one, but never found one.

I was so excited about it that I spent the afternoon working with the pattern. Julie did quite a good job on the pattern, but I had a hard time getting round 4 to work out. I didn’t have enough stitches in round 3 to accommodate the pattern and make the four corners. It’s possible it was just me not reading the pattern right. I do have that problem sometimes. It took awhile, but I worked out a bit of a different formula and was able to get round 4 to turn out right.

For the complete pattern please visit:

Julie contacted me and sure it enough I read it wrong. I don’t know what I was thinking.

I’m sorry Julie, for misreading your directions.
Thanks again for a great pattern.
Now, I’m off to make another one and see if I can follow your directions right this time.

Here’s my granny square I made by following Julie’s pattern the right way (hopefully).  This would make an awesome warm blanket. I have plans to use this pattern in the future. It was an easy pattern to do once I got the hang of it.
