Welcome to my little farm in the city.

This is a little blog about my life here on my little farm in the city. I am a wife, a mom, a grandma to 6 beautiful grandchildren. I live in a very small Mayberry like town in South Carolina . We live on the banks of a small river in the woods. I raise chickens and this year I really plan to try my hand at a small garden so that I can use the products for canning this year. It will be a venture since all we have is this lovely red clay that is hard as a brick, but I have high hopes. I am an avid knitter and crocheter and I love to work on new patterns that I find. You will probably find much of my work here as I finish it. Well thanks for stopping bye and please stop in often and stay as long as you like. Trudy

A nice quiet weekend, snowy weather and a good blog produce this !!!

So I have  been having  some fun the last  few days.  I LOVE to read blogs.  I could spend all day  reading  peoples  knitting, crocheting  and crafty creative blogs. I was  just  catching up on some of  my faves and I came across this one  ......... I love  free stuff and I love  love  LOVE yarn and this one caught my attention ......

 Journey of a crafter: Giveaway: want some yarn?: It's been time to do some spring cleaning in my stash these days and I've found something for you! There's 1 prize consisting in this s...

This is  such a wonderful and  creative   blog  I am so glad  I found it ..... you  probably wonder how I did find it right?  Well   I found her  on my twitter  account.  Yes  ....... I twitter and  I am having such a good time with it .  My twitter  name is  Sunflower Farms 1.   I have  been putting all my  things  I am creating on it and I love to follow all kinds of  wonderful crafty creative people and their blogs.  I have  made some new friends, gotten some wonderful ideas, and  had  fun  seeing how  beautifully creative  people are  .  So  I think I need to update my  blog list  and  you should  really get a cup of coffee,  charge or  plug in your laptop and  start  reading.   One  of my  very all time  faves is  this  one , Attic24.  Her  blog  is  a wonderful relaxing read.  Her  designs are  so beautiful, and so colorful and cheerful. I  absolutely adore her designs . I go to her blog everyday and I visit her face book page  all the time for updates.   So  you  have  my  permission , sit down, relax and  read a  few blogs and enjoy!!

 OK  so I told you that  Lucy from Attic 24 inspires me  to be  creative  and I love  what  she does  with such colorful yarn .  I absolutely love  her eye for color and  her  love for all things  granny.  I also  love  all things  granny!  I love  round grannies . square grannies, lots of color grannies. one color grannies, granny ripples  granny stripes , I  adore  the  look of the granny patterns  so much and  all that  Lucy creates that  I have  started my own colorful Granny Stripe  Afghan.  Of course  I must  tell you first  and foremost that I have  no eye  for  matching  colors.  I stink at  it  and  as much as I would  love  to recreate one  of Lucy's Granny blankets,  I fear it  will not  be nearly as  pretty  but  here is my  attempt  to  recreate one of  her  most  beautiful blankets .  I have  been working on this all weekend  since I have  peace and quiet .  Yes it is very quiet this weekend as the hubby has  been in Oklahoma  visiting our  son who is in the  Army.  Since  I have  been alone  , just me and  the dogs, this is what I am working on .  I must  say the further along I get the more I am liking it .
Oh  I did  mention snow  didn't  I ?  Yes  here is  wonderful South Carolina  we  usually get  really mild winters.  On this past  weekend  though Mother Nature  decided  we needed   a little joke, a wake up  call of sorts .  Perhaps  she thought  we were so disappointed that  everyone was  getting the white stuff  but us..........  well not  me   but  we need to make the children here  happy.   So  this is what  she sent  us this past  weekend .  Yes  we got about 3  inches.  It  lasted  until the next day  or  so and it began to melt .  I still have  just  a few spots  here and there where sun has not hit it  but for the most part it is now just a memory.
