Flowers and Hats…

.

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…

Summer Skimmer Slippers…

.

Another awesome project finished for the Artwalk…  I have made several pairs of these great Skimmer Slippers by Hook Candy.  You can find the pattern at hookcandy.com or on Ravelry.  It is a great pattern and it is available to purchase, but well worth it.  I love free patterns, but I also don’t mind paying for a great pattern!  A lot of work goes into writing and testing patterns, so I think its great to support a fellow crocheter in their business!

Super comfortable and non skid…

.

The soles are double layered and very comfortable, I added Glow In The Dark Dimensional Fabric Paint on the bottoms for a non skid effect.  These work up in just a few hours of work and are a great gift or a treat for yourself!  Give them a try and check out her other patterns too!

So here is to slippers, Artwalks and Glow in the Dark!
