Small Steps…

.

I am so excited today is here!  All the hard work making tons of crochet projects for my display at Alpine Originals for the Art Walk this evening… And now I  get to show it all off!  I couldn’t resist last night making a couple new items though!!!  I thought I would make one more pair of Skimmer Slippers using the pattern I bought a couple of years ago over at hookcandy.com… The pair I made a few days ago already had sold and I thought it would be nice to make one more pair for the Art Walk…

.

I couldn’t resist the temptation of something new… I had been talking to my Sister-In-Law Laura a couple of weeks ago about the pattern and we were saying how much we both love making these slippers,,, She then told me she had also purchased the children’s pattern and LOVED it!  So… I hopped over to  Hook Candy and purchased the children’s pattern!   I couldn’t wait to get home to give it a try… They were so easy and quick,,, I whipped these up in just a couple of hours and they will be the final touch for my display… Debbie at Alpine Originals had just mentioned how much people liked seeing Baby Items in the store!  We live in such a small town,,, Sometimes it’s hard to find what you need,,, Now,, They can find Baby Skimmer Slippers!

It’s getting close!!! Only a few more days and the Artwalk will be here…This Friday our quaint little town has an Artwalk for all the Galleries and Stores to show off their stuff…  I am blessed to be able to sell my crochet items at Alpine Originals… They are featuring my “Art” for this months Artwalk…

.

Wow… Crochet being featured as the “Main display”…  Who could imagine !!!  Not just your Grannies doilies anymore… Crochet is so popular, and I hope to show some of what can be done with a little yarn(or fabric) and a hook!!!.

So I thought I would share what I made this weekend to add to the display… Of course there are many more items that are already at Alpine Originals… And,,, I plan to add just a few more in the upcoming days…

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!
