Gesundheit!


"God Bless You"  


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bless you, or God bless you, is a common English expression addressed to a person after they sneeze. The origin of the custom and its original purpose are unknown.
An alternative expression to Bless you that is sometimes said after a sneeze is the German and Yiddish word Gesundheit.


I told you I couldn't resist making another one!  
I made this one to match my kitchen/family room colors...cranberry, pink and country blue.  

One corner..the pink at the top is where the triple crochet (American term) is placed.


Same edging as my previous one I posted about in blue and yellow shades (here).


Now I have to run out to Michaels to get white yarn so I can make one for our guest bathroom.  
These are so much fun to make and it's nice to have a finished project in one day. 

Don't forget to blog over to Michelle's (The Royal Sisters) to get this pattern/tutorial (here)!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!  Thanks for visiting me!

  5. We say "na zdravie" in Slavic, which means "to your health" and in fact is also used as "cheers".;)I have once heard that it originated from the time of the plague when you would bless people that sneezed as if expressing hope they were not sick.;) Beautiful crochet as always, you are so talented.;)
    Have a lovely weekend,
    xoxo
