If you all check Lucy's blog at Attic24, you saw her absolutely gorgeous Home Poncho she made. Well I just HAD to make one! Got a little bored making thread doilies for 6 months and needed a good project to work on and this was it:) Back on yarny stuff for now at least. So this was my practice one, making it just from her gorgeous photos. Thete is no pattern for it as of yet and no promise of one according to her post, so you just have to wing it!!!

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:)
