Vintage Fleur Blanket crochet pattern in pastel pinks and white cotton yarn hexagons, by Susan Carlson of Felted Button | Colorful Crochet Patterns

::A Different Focus::

I've had my mind on things other than crochet lately. Ok. That's a big lie. I am ALWAYS thinking about crochet. Yarn, color, shape, unusual stitches, texture, MORE yarn. But with several large projects in the works that don't require a hook, I literally did not pick my hook up for nearly a week. That's a very long time for me.


So here is what I have been doing...
(and wishing I had taken BEFORE pics so you could be more impressed). Our backyard has essentially been a field of weeds that I spent too much time just trying to keep from growing as tall as the fence. After MUCH work we now have no weeds, a wall to create tiers (see above) and sprinklers for garden boxes, grass and lots of flower beds!!

We also have this mini mountain of rocks that looks small here, but every one of them was moved by hand! I can hardly wait to get this baby finished! Then I can sit in the back and enjoy some hooky time, right?

I did put together this little hexagon yesterday. I am using a bulky cotton that I found on clearance (yippee!). It is soft and squishy and washable, and well, lovely!


I like the texture. I love the colors. And hexagons are terrifically versatile. Isn't crochet nifty?!!


Also, Sue, of Crochet Addict UK, reviewed a pattern of mine--my Ribbed Wristwarmers pattern. You can read about her review here



And my Candy Stick Blanket was featured over at Hookin on Hump Day at Moogly and My Merry Messy Life. 


The Felted Button "Loop" Newsletter will be coming out tomorrow. If you haven't signed up, do it over there in the sidebar or on my Facebook page with the little envelope at the top of the page. Why, you ask? Because this particular newsletter contains a coupon code for 40% off the Crazy-Good pattern. Yep. That's CRAZY-GOOD.
 
Be well, my friends! I'm gone from home all next week, but I'll be popping in very soon! Now off to figure out what yarny, hooky project to take on the road with me.
