On another note… I only have 2 more Granny Squares to finish up my True Colors Afghan,,, I will post the pictures tomorrow!!  Then,,, The joining… I am trying to decide my method… I have two ways… A simple SC in the back loops of each block, creating a window pane effect on the back,,, OR a Flat Braid method… Also very nice…  Well,,, I will decide that when I lay it out!!

So here is to Elk Studio and Her Great Designs,,, and Finishing up my True Colors Afghan!

Flowers and Chains… Feminine Crochet!!!

.

I wanted to share a few more things I have whipped up… These super feminine Flowers and Chains Crochet Scarves are so stylish and they were super easy to make…  They can be worn in several ways and are great all year round to spruce up your wardrobe!  The purple/green one reminded me of pansy’s and the orange/yellow reminds me of poppy’s…  They can be worked up using your stash yarn… I will be working out the pattern for you soon and these two are available on my Etsy Shop

A Summer of Crochet at My Etsy Shop!

.

I am always working on something new… I have been working hard to fill up my Etsy Shop with great summertime projects…  I came home last night to two big boxes I had been waiting for… One had a new beautiful mannequin head and the other a mannequin body to style scarves, wraps and clothing items… The body is my size so I can create garments to fit even better… I was able to use them last night to photograph three of my latest Etsy listings…  Here is a peek…

I was so excited to get my mannequins working,,, I took these photos last night…  It was almost dark so the quality of the pictures didn’t show the vibrancy of the colors as well as I want,,, So I will be taking a few new photos today!
