Crocheting 9 Patch Squares

A side project I have going on right now is making these little granny squares and then sewing them together in 9 patch style and then adding one more granny border.

I will then crochet the squares together to make an afghan.  It is a great way to use up bits of yarn.

I finished reading White Goats and Black Bees and wanted to share a quote:

"So is the ability to enjoy life, minute by minute.  Despite our long hours of physical work we learned from our neighbors the value of stopping work - for a cup of tea, talk, or simply to watch a flower or bird or the way the sea broke over the rocks.  It was easy for city people, watching a farmer stop in the middle of some task to think him lazy: 'There's the Irish for you.'  It is difficult for people whose lives are broken into segments to understand what life can be when it si of one piece."

Joining with Ginny and so many other for the Yarn Along today.
