Patriotic Crochet

.

Patriotic, Whimsical and Crochet Art!!  Every year I crochet one of these beauties to sell at Alpine Originals… They are always a hit!!  You may wonder why only one,,, If you crochet alot, after one it becomes a job and not creativity… So if I whip two out back to back,,, I don’t love the work quite as much…  It doesn’t take to long to make these,, maybe 5-6 hours… So here it is… Crochet Flag Rag Rug…Well,,, Wall hanging,,, We don’t walk on our flag!

And,,, Of course Charlie getting in the mix…

This year since I am featured in the Artwalk at Alpine Originals in just a couple of weeks,,, I have started a second Decorative Flag… Yes, It is work,,, but I am hoping to spread the art of crochet!  My hook and hands will be very busy in the next couple weeks getting everything finished up so I can have a nice display… If you live close by make sure you come to the Artwalk on Friday June 28th!!

.

I will be working on the pattern over the next few months,, So stay tuned!  For now it is all locked up in my head!

So here is to Flags, Crochet and Art!

The weekend flew by,,, My flowers are really starting to bloom in the unusual heat… Normally we stay in the 70’s – 80’s, but the last week was in the 90’s.  I thought I could share a little of what I saw in my yard before we left for a family gathering on Sunday…
