Final adornments!

I have finally managed to finish embellishing my summer crochet hat and the lime head band .......

needed to leave them be for a while ......

brain ticking away...

decisions, decisions.........

sometimes the creative juices need to brew on the back burner.....







well it's always a challenge creating with what you have in your stash.....



or not even knowing what it's going to be when you start.....


playing around with the idea......

trying something out.....

letting your fingers create as you go...

never knowing where it will end....


and the surprise of the finished product....

I love following where the crochet takes me....

sometimes it flows....
and sometimes it stops abruptly....

but every now and then it just takes over...

stitches come from the heavens....

creation with feeling...

Summer Cotton Crochet

It must be summer.........

I am crocheting more and more with cotton......

feeling a bit fidgety lately due to an annoying lower back
(I prefer not to talk about it).....

simply put I am unable to sit at all sometimes....

which means sometimes I am so over lying flat on my back....

I insist on sitting even if it's with the aid of anti-inflammatory pill poppin.....

and sometimes just sometimes.... .a girl needs to crochet no matter what..... even if it means standing..... to do it.........

playing with my Patons 100% cotton yarns 4ply and DK .... making up my own patterns....

making myself a summertime DK sleeping hat....
(yes, I sleep in hats)...

and a summertime 4ply sun hat....

of course this is not happening all at the same time...




sleeping hat I made last week....










this week it's the sun hat...


relax ... relax...
I can't even sit at the computer when my back is this bad...

still have a bit to go on my sun hat...

now making the drawstring and then thinking of some adornments....
daisies or something.....????
