Summertime Crochet!


I am enjoying this great weather and the garden so much!  Here in this small California mountain community, it’s in the mid 80’s- low 90’s.  That is a little warm for us around here!  I finally got my garden going and have been having a great time sprucing up the yard!


All the kids and grand-kids were home for this Fourth of July, We had a blast,,, Swimming, Slip-n-Sliding, Roasting Hot Dogs and Smores… I built a new brick patio last week and bought a new fire pit just in time for all the festivities!  I thought I would share a few photos with you!






New Tomato Plants… With a few tomatoes already!



New Brick Patio for Firepit… I did this all by my self!



So, what about Summertime Crochet??? I can’t just stop crocheting, But I do slow down a tiny bit in this nice weather!  I started the Shell Shell pattern by Kim Guzman on Ravelry, Click here to get the free pattern!


Just a few more rows and then the edging and it will be done!


Fun pattern repeat!


And another really exciting note,,, I sold my first item at my Etsy Store this weekend!  Stop by and check it out! I have added several great items….Just click the ETSY Button on the sidebar of this blog to get to my store!  So… I started another afghan for the store… I loved the True Colors Afghan I gave to my grandson… So I thought I would make another…




True Colors Afghan Blocks


So here is to Summertime Crochet, Etsy and Gardening!  Happy Summer!
