I have been working on so many great projects lately,,, And like most of my fellow crocheter’s,,, I have started a couple new ones…The first is a great Colorful Granny Square Blanket using my stash of yarn… It is going to someone very special…,, Next is a beautiful Tank Shell for me,,, The pattern available on Ravelry.com by Kim Guzman click Here.. I’m using comfy sport cotton from Knit Picks in Black…  And lastly, I am working on a second Decorative Flag… Here are some pictures…

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!
