Back from the sea and Tuesdays Tallies!

Hello everybody!
We just came back from a wonderful week at the sea! We had such a happy time at the beach! In my mind I´m still sitting there watching my son playing in the sand.

I have managed to finish 120 squares by now, I wanted to finish all  last week, but I have realised that crochet with sand and suncream sticking on my hands is not really my favourite thing to to! But I guess, I can start with the last row soon. I´m still not sure how many squares I will use, I have started 140, but maybe 12 rows with 10 squares will be big enough. I will lay them all down in rows this week and have a look!

If you want to join us or see more beautiful One a day projects please visit Carols blog!

Wishing you all a happy day and thank you so much for stopping by!
I will have a lot of washing to do now, yay!


  1. I so know what you mean about suncream, sand and crochet! The beach pics look lovely, that looks like lovely soft sand to play in.

    Your box of crochet looks ready to go, I'll bet it will be lovely when they're all joined into the blanket...are you bordering them all in the same colour? Look forward to seeing it go together!

    1. Yes, that sand was great to play with and for building huge sand castles! Endless fun! :)
      I will bordering all squares in white, I hope it will look nice with all that different colours I have used.
      Have a great day Faith!

  2. Loving your crochet Barbina! Such lovely gorgeous colours!

  3. I don't think I would enjoy the sand and wool combination either, but it looks like you are right on your way!

  4. Wish I was at the beach! I don't think I could crochet with the sand, wind, and salt either. I like to read at the beach. Can't wait to see the finished project.

  5. I am making the same squares as you don't they look pretty, I have my little wheels in a pretty container displayed on my table I love looking at them and playing with them haha

  6. The thought of the beach for vacation sounds nice but I agree about sand, suncream and wool not being very good. I love your colors and will look forward to seeing your afghan as it is taking shape.

  8. Looking very good, barbina!

  9. Beautiful colours, it's going to look gorgeous. I love your seaside photo's. Deb xx

  10. The colours in this blanket are amazing. You have picked such lovely colour combinations.

  11. Liebe Barbina, danke, dass du mich besucht hast. Deine Runden sehen doch schon mal super aus und mit Weiß sind sie bestimmt toll. Deine Seefotos machen süchtig. Da möchte man doch gleich seine Tasche packen und losfahren ... Schön, dass das Wetter mitgespielt hat.
    Liebe Grüße aus Biesenthal

  12. This seems to have come together so quickly. I can't wait to see how they all look with their white borders. Your holiday collages are beautiful.

  13. Your stacks are beautiful and I think it'd be awesome with white as the joining thread!

    Beautiful pictures and it sounds like you had a wonderful holiday!

  14. The washing of clothes is always the biggest task upon returning home from a holiday. Good luck! Your squares look fantastic. Will be such a beautiful blanket once it is all together. Happy August ! Tammy

  15. I love your circles, you have worked so fast! I'm envious of your lovely trip to the beach, looks like the weather was divine.

  16. Welcome back :-) And applause for your nice squares, they look so fresh and colorful! Can't wait to see the finished blanket.

  17. Hallo Barbina!

    Schön, dass Du wieder da bist! Ich bin schon gespannt, wie's mit Deiner Decke weitergeht - welche Wolle benutzt Du denn? Die Farben sehen toll aus!!
    Noch was: Ich habe einen Award für Dich :)

    Ein wunderschönes Wochenende,

  21. Hi Barbina, it's so nice to be back home and finally get some time to visit my favourite blogs. I love this post so much. Your holiday pictures are gorgeous - I really love the way you have displayed them in that montage. Just beautiful! It sounds as if you had the most wonderful time. Your pretty stacks are amazing! I love the colours and can't wait to see more of it! I'm in that weird place where I don't know quite what to make next. I might just have to visit a wool shop tomorrow for inspiration!! Seeing all your lovely stacks has made me want to do another blanket.

    Have a fabulous week hon,
