A very happy day to you!!
Hope that you are having a lovely start to the week and are enjoying some wonderful weather!
Over the weekend I worked on a custom order for some strawberry crocheted hangers for a sweet customer. So, being in the hanger mood, I knew it was time to attempt making one with crochet thread similar to the pretty vintage hangers that I found recently at an estate sale. And, I was surprised that it only took a little longer to make then the cotton yarn ones! Yay!
I crocheted it using a mint variegated thread, which I was excited about until I finished and really didn't like the way the colors were spread out. I was hoping for them to be vertical, but because I made a long chain instead of a short one, it made them horizontal. I tried doing it the shorter chain way, but then all the green ended up on one side and the whites on the other, so I gave up, for now!
I am thinking that the older variegated thread had shorter lengths of the colors, so it looked more blended? It is still a mystery for now and sorry if I have thoroughly confused you with all this! ;)
I added some pretty crocheted flowers and just love the sweet touch it gives the hanger. So, it was a good test run and I already have my next one planned, but this one will be a solid color! ;)
Another row of sixteen-patch quilts blocks are finished! Oh, I can't wait for this colorful quilt top to be done!! It just might be one of my favorites so far! What crafty or sewing goodness are you working on this week?
Wishing you all a lovely and crafty week!!
