It’s been awhile since I posted a crochet post. However, I’ve not been neglecting my creative duties. I finished the 2018 A to Z Challenge with a quilt top, began the Season of Yardwork and Gardening, did plenty of mending, got contacted to do some custom items, and finished the following little number for my Etsy shop. There’s never a dull moment at my house.
Just going to make one more of these in Pink and white before I dive into some other projects.
What’s next? With the heat of summer, I will most likely stick with small projects that won’t raise my temperature in Missouri’s humid months. Here are some Pinterest ideas I find enticing.
I highly encourage these motif centered ideas for my crochet friends along with a tall glass of lemonade while sitting on your porch. Don’t forget the fan!
This crochet needle is for thread work. Tiny stitches make for pretty lace.
For the Weekly Photo Challenge, I decided to go with the current project. It was finished Sunday evening on a special request order. It’s for an 18-month old little girl who I feel would also fit in the tiny category. I’m happy to say the customer was very pleased!
So I resisted the urge to photograph Chrome. Somehow the Trace Adkins song came to my head. And I really don’t like that song. No offense to his music or persona.
Anyhoo, here is my take on Monochromatic. This is one of my favorite creations that I have debated many times about selling. It takes 4 skeins of Homespun Yarn so most likely would cost someone a small chunk of change. Maybe you’d tell me if it stands a chance in the marketplace?
Am I allowed to ask questions in a photo challenge?
I’ve mentioned back in August how inspired I was by my Great Aunt Hattie. Here’s a refresher in case you missed it. I am extremely grateful and also elated by the review I received this past week on Etsy. I am humbled at the word ‘heirloom’. What a daunting task to make something of that caliber again. So the question looms….will I?
AWESOME!!!! I can’t imagine how much work went into this!! This looks fantastic on my dining room table. It brightens up the whole room!!! This will be an heirloom piece for sure!! Thank you for your creativity and workmanship!! This arrived promptly and very well packaged. Very pleased!! If I could give ten stars, I would!
