I attempted my very first doily with thread. I could never work with thread before, or a hook that small, but...it wasn't that bad! I used a 2.75mm hook and Bernat size 5 thread. The pattern was messed up though, errors! The last two rows just did not make sense so I had to wing it. Came out ok. You can see in the one photo the doily picture. I printed that free pattern online. Now I need to find some more!

I've been wanting to try making a pineapple doily lately but not thrilled with using thread. It's just so thin! So I decided to use my 4 ply cotton yarn and see how it turns out. So far so good! Will post a finished photo when it's done. Two more rows....it's big!

Something new I've been working on lately. An idea my mom did many years ago that got my interest on a recent visit back home.
I have not crocheted much all summer (and that's a first in over ten years!!!) But I have been making ALOT of macrame plant hangers and they are selling like hot cakes :) in my Etsy shop. Just yesterday I added some of the new beaded hangers and one sold right away. I love making these.

Lucy birdies. I plan to give away a free crocheted item all summer with each purchase from my shop. Some may get a birdie, or something else:)

Here is what i've been working on! A bunch of colorful Lucy birds which I plan on offering one free bird with every purchase from my shop all summer. I have the bodies and wings done. Beaks are next!
If you've been following my blog for awhile now, you know I'm working on a huge yarn ball made from leftover scraps of yarn. It's growing nicely!

I made this awhile ago, combining the ripple with granny squares in my favorite colors.
It seems I can only load two pictures in posts from the Blogger app on my phone. Oh well.

I was digging through my stash of afghans i've made over the last decade. Here is two favorites out on the grass;)
This is also a test post from my new smartphone. If it works ok I will be able to post updates more often:)

Here is some snow for you folks with none! We have too much! You might be able to see the deer at the top of the hill.

I also made a little basket out of the 2mm cord. I don't have any good pictures of it yet, but soon!

On a brighter note, I have 2 shawls that I am just about finished with, and should have pics up here by tomorrow!!! One is made with the Catherine's Wheel stitch, and the other is a granny square style! If you follow me on Instagram, you might have already seen them partially finished! You can see the pictures on the right side of my blog under Instagram!
