My name is Bronwyn and I am so glad you have stopped by for a visit. I hope you find joy and inspiration in everything you see here. I live with my family in a new, builder-grade townhome in a small city, even though my dream home would be a century old farmhouse in the countryside. Daily I strive to add warmth, "age," and character to our little home. I love to knit, crochet, sew, decorate, bake and go thrift shopping. These are all a wonderful release after my three small children are off to bed each evening. Thankfully, I have a patient and understanding husband, Kevin, who allows me to bring all kinds of crazy things into our home in the the name of "creativity."

Work in Progress Wednesday

After the kids head off to bed, after tomorrow's lunches are made, backpacks are filled and the kitchen is clean, this is what I look forward to putting my hands on:

Yes! My ripple afghan. I have been working on it for just over a week and I am in love!
Row by row, colour by colour, I watch its cozy warmth grow. I average one colour an evening, more if my bed-pillow isn't calling too loudly!
Look at those pastels! Oh, they make my heart sing. I never get tired of them. Don't they look like a glimpse of spring on these cold Canadian winter days??
I hope to have my blanket done by Valentine's Day. That is the goal I have set for myself. If I keep up my rate of crochet I should make it easily!
What do you think? Do you "ripple?" I'd love to hear from you. And please, become a follower!


  1. I love this. I have not rippled yet! lol. I would love to try. right now I have been busy making wrist warmers and critter hats. this is definitely next on my list. And I'm following now!

  2. I don't ripple, but I wish I did!!! I love it! You are so talented! Did you see I featured your heart bunting on Wednesday? I love your cute projects!

    Thanks for sharing this at my party!

  3. Hi Bronwyn, I love your ripple pattern. I used to make these when I was a kid--my aunt (she was 20 years older than my mom and like a grandma to us!) got us all started. Your gentle ripple is so pretty! I might have to start one again! I am your newest follower and looking forward to seeing more of your blog. Linda

  4. The colors are absolutely perfect!!! I wish I knew how to crochet.. or even knit hehe.

    Have a great day!

  5. It's beautiful! I love those colors. What yarn are you using. I just started a blanket but I'd love to make a ripple one next. I crochet lots of things but have never done a ripple blanket before!

    Thanks for linking up to A Pinteresting Party. I'll be pinning this for when I finish my other blanket. :)

  6. Beautiful! I love the ripple and the colors you chose!


Thanks so much for popping by my little world. I'd love to hear from you. Comments make my day!!
