Happy colours!

While I'm limping on, waiting for some treatment for this thyroid gland virus, I really cannot be bothered to take photos. This is unfortunate, as I clearly can be bothered to blog. So I need to find something for you to look at! I was in need of some happy photos myself last night, and I though of Flickr. Obviously, loads of you are completely conversant with Flickr and all the clever things you can do on it, but not me. I had a yahoo account but it time-lapsed on me.
But I sought and found the Granny Chic group. Oh Happy Day!
The colours are just so stunningly cheerful.
And I have one or two photos from the last year which are that happy myself.I tracked them down last night.Happy!And I reactivated my yahoo account, which took a little while.And then this morning I joined the Granny Chic group and popped five photos (you have a maximim of five a week) onto it.And they have been accepted! (The fear of rejection was on me for a moment.)Therefore I can tell you that the Granny Chic group not only has great images in it, but it is also swiftly (and of course tastefully) moderated. Very impressive.I never showed you the cushion above, because I upcycled it for my sister for Christmas.
You've seen these doilies made into loads of things!
The restorative power of a good dose of red and blue.

I think the cushion is fantastic, I love the idea of granny chic, but I am not inany way chic!!

Oh I love crocheting grannies. Thanks for posting the pictures and the Flickr group. I checked it out and bookmarked it.
I´m still crocheting two blankets blue colors and pink colors.
Later I´ll do a colorful for the kids room.
Hope you feel better soon.....

Have a great weekend! Stay warm and be creative :D

Sorry you are still under the weather. Hope you start feeling better real soon. Great job on the cushion. I have really slacked on taking pictures also, due to the back and leg issue.
Have a great weekend.

I am completely clueless when it comes to flickr, really ought to look into it one of these days. Well done on being accepted by that group though, thats wonderful!
Great cushion, I bet your sis was really pleased with it.

Love the idea of GrannyChic :)

The first picture could have come straight off the pages of Country Living AND you've made it summer too (rather handy as its grey & wet here today).

Dear Floss
I hope those medical folk soon have you hopping and skipping again.
I love seeing and revisiting these photos again - Like you I haven't used my camera much this week and it can be fun to 'recycle' the photos too, can't it?
Take care
