Clean work station

Wow this is very rare.  My work area is clean.

#workstation #workarea
It has been so busy this year.  After winter and holidays... I though crocheting was going to slow down.  But festivals were gearing in and I had to do the same.  Crochet halter tops are hot right now and so I am making tons of them and custom orders are keeping me busy.

Thank you etsy for allowing me to do what I love and I love doing it.

Crochet cover for Bicycle basket

I have a new bike and I love taking it for a stroll to the nearest store.  But I don't want to carry the items in a bookbag or my front basket.  So I added a folding rear basket.  Although it's utilitarian... I wanted to add my creative touch to it.

Red Heart Super Saver have this same color yarn (mint green color).  But for this project I use Simply Carrol bran.  It has a hint of shine to it that I like and it is a lot softer than the Red Heart version.  It matches my bike perfectly.  

It only covers 3 sides of the basket.

Crochet and Netflix

Binge watching is in.  There's only one way to do that, and that is with Netflix and crochet.  I must have watched tons of documentary on Netflix.  I use to think that Netflix sucks because it doesn't have the new DVD releases available to stream.  But now I can't live without it.  I am always looking for the latest documentaries or tv shows.

Crochet boho boots

The Gypsie in me had to make one.  I love boho boots.  So I wanted to put a twist on mines.  I crochet a scarf for my boots and wrapped a buddist meditation necklace.  I added layer of burnt orange, chocolate brown and teal color yarn.  I love the look and will be making more.

Folding Tablet crochet cover

Yes, I know, I'm going crochet cover crazy.  But I just had to do this one.  

I was trying to get inspired for my mother's day gift to make for my dearest mother.  
I started working on these flower center granny square.

I used 3 shades of pink and gold in the center.  But I ran out of that particular white yarn.

So I started over and made 9 squares with green center and put together a cover for my folding table.

I love the outcome.  and I was so pleased with it that I rode my bicycle to Dollar Tree to get some flowers for the glass vase.  (will post more photo tomorrow).  I just had to share this with you guys.  Now I know exactly how to make my mother's afghan.  Instead of pink, I will use 3 shades of blue for the flowers.

Crochet Stool Cover

I am inspired by Pinterest.  I can literally just spend hours browsing pinterest site over crochet items.  One inspiration that got me hooking is a crochet cover for stool.  

This is a black metal stool.  The original cover is a black pleather (plastic not leather) 
Now, it gets more attention after I crochet a cover for it using some left over yarn.

Hard at work

Here I am hard at work.  Finishing some orders for crochet halter tops.  This is one of my best seller this year.  Funny it rarely sold last year.  I had another best seller last year.

I will be making some more as soon as my wrist allows me to.  It hurts.

Wooden Beads

They can be expensive.  I ordered mine from ebay.  They are from China or somewhere in that region.  Very inexpensive.  They are not exactly the right size I wanted.  I use them to adorn some of my crochet halter tops and crochet bags.

After watching so many documentaries on plastic, I am trying to switch whatever I can.  And that is why I'm using these bamboo beads.

I buy these fruit cups from Walmart for $1.00 each.  They come in these cute little glass jar.  I just can't throw them away after just one use.  I think it's criminal.  They are called Polar Mixed Fruit.  So after the snack.  I give a good wash and cleaning and re-purpose them as tea light candle holder.
