Another Day,,, Another Basket…


Although yesterday was one of those crazy days in a woman’s life,,, I still had time to whip up another great Door Hanger Basket!  Like most crocheter’s… This is how I unwind in the evening… The feel of the soft fiber and my favorite wooden hook,,, a little counting(for those of you who are a little OCD, you get this!) and a project coming together… A great way to end a busy day…


This is how a crazy day goes… Up and out to work… Post on blog, Phone calls, Faxes and Emails on my break to my 2nd job… Arrange appointments for my daughter… Run home at lunch to take care of animals and leave money for daughters appointment… Back to work… Daughter forgets money for appointment,,, Get off work at 5 and run money to her,,, To grocery store for supplies for high school sports awards potluck…  Make a delicious Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble (Recipe from At Home With Sara), I added Strawberries upon my daughters request…, Go to Potluck,,,  Back home to start cleaning the kitchen from the mess I made  earlier… Make a few phone calls and emails,,, Load of laundry,,, Chat with a friend for a few minutes and finally time to crochet… AHHH! … I’m sure I missed a few details,,, but you get the idea… I’m sure I am not alone in these types of days…

Medium Size Door Hanger Basket…


These are great baskets and easy to make… you can find the pattern on Ravelry by Summer Brodbeck or on her blog at The Crochet Diaries…  I used her theory, but changed it up count wise to make it larger, made the loop larger and used a reverse crochet to edge it… Give it a try,,, I’m sure you will love it!


I get to have my precious granddaughter for a sleepover tonight… So not sure if any crochet is in the plan,,, but lots of fun is!


So here is to Crazy Day’s, Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble, Door Hanger Baskets and Granddaughters…
