New Stuff

Feeling pretty content that I have graduated in my Crochet Experience to accomplish this motif. Reading and Understanding  a pattern can be the most difficult part of crochet. There are a variety of pattern examples of which I won’t bore you with at this time.

The point of this blog post is the PiCtUrEs ..IMG_0045

This version uses Gold Metallic #5 thread and “Fern” #5 thread. It’s about 2 1/2 inches square.


Here we have a #3 Scarlet and Antique White Combo


This shows the size comparison with different thread sizes.


Motif in hand, this picture was taken by a different camera.

Feeling thankful we invested in that new Canon!!

A Hunter Family Kind of Christmas

 Wikipedia has a definition for “what we do” each year for our family Christmas party:
A white elephant gift exchange is a holiday party game found primarily in North America. Generally, white elephant parties need a minimum of six participants. With a larger group, game play may be more protracted. White elephant parties have been known to result in playful rivalries between players trying to get sought after gifts. The goal of a white elephant party is usually to entertain rather than to gain.
While the term “white elephant” originally referred to a less-than-serious gift, its association with this particular game has become synonymous in some circles, such that the game itself is commonly called a White Elephant Gift Exchange.

Kick Off December


Yesterday was the end of November and the end of our craft show season. The weather was beautiful and I still sold some cowls!!


Thanks to Aunt Maybelle for sharing a photo of Ron, Mother and me at our last show for 2013 in Windsor, Missouri

I now have a significant stockpile of items for Etsy. I will begin photographing them for posts very soon. In fact, we began last night with a pic of Rachel modeling a cowl.
