I'm working on a very special dress for one of my friends, it involves custom tarot cards, a skirt, and lots of crocheting. So far I have the panels made and today will start on crocheting "godets" I believe they are called or the flares in between the panels to make it look like a very full skirt. This is a fun project and yes I will post pictures when it's done.
Well howdy folks- get out your hooks and set a spell, take your shoes off, how 'bout a little sweet tea?
Not that kind of drawl! I mean I haven't had any hookin' time lately and I am feeling it! My sweetie has his own farm this year and I have been helping him every day after my landscaping job. By the time I get home it is after dark and usually I am so tired I can barely lift a hook, let alone be inspired to make something. The one project I have been picking up every once in a…Continue

I want to do this every few months, so let's start here now.
In ONE word describe crochet. Leave it in the comments…
Hi, I am new to Hookey. I joined yesterday. I wanted to write something, anything; but I was very sad and down from my visit with my mom. Yesterday was her birthday. She was 85. My mom didn't know who I was. She has Alzheimer's. My mom taught me how to crochet. She was my inspiration. She guided me on and encouraged me to continue. I inherited her love of crochet. I have all her crochet books and patterns which I cherish. I wish she didn't have Alzheimers so I could share crochet…Continue

New here, and liking it! Plan to share post soon. Please visit my blog and see what you think.Continue
I apologize that my only blog post so far on Hookey is bad news! We just found out my husband has Lou Gherig's Disease (ALS). He is 48. I am in shock as the realization of what is in store for us dawns on me. I believe crochet and the crochet community will be a tremendous help to me as I go on this strange and awesome journey with my husband.
I am just so thrilled at the positive response from my nautical inspired summer tote bag! Between my own journal, Hookey and other craft sites it seems to be getting a lot of attention. I can't wait for people to try the pattern and post some of their finished work!
I've posted the pattern for free on my blog:
Admittedly, the "shape" isn't…Continue

On Monday June 4, 2012 I sent out an email broadcast to your in boxes. We've really grown since our official launch on Feb 24, 2012. If you haven't had a chance to read that email I urge you to do so, you might want to check your spam folder and allow this email address. I don't send out a lot of messages, just a few here and there to remind you of important events, opportunities and the occasional housekeeping reminder.
If you didn't get the email, in short I thanked you all…Continue
I was thinking and musing about socks at my regular blog here. Everyone should make socks. Just saying. Anyway, it's time to talk about me, hahaha.
You know, I really like feet. Not in a creepy way, there are no feet in jars in my basement or anything like that. It's just that after all these years and probably thousands of pedicures that I've given, I have come to appreciate feet. They do a really rotten job and we…Continue

Well one of them at least. And it also ties into a small business I do.
I have rabbits..not just one or 2 pet rabbits, but LOTS of rabbits. Bred a bunch today and have a bunch of does that are due in the next few days.
Nothing more exciting that to uncover a litter of baby rabbits and see how many, what color and just to see new life! Must be spring or something...
Off to work on the log cabin afghan I started. I must be nuts..

I am STILL moving, had no idea exactly how much stuff I actually have in there and the books, OMG the books/magazines and I assure you I am completely covered if there is EVER a book shortage
So while recovering my little hooker fingers went to work. lol
3 hats, 1 bag are completed. I also have a top and 2 more bags that are 75% done.
I've been working as fast as I can as I would really like to have a decent inventory to be able to participate with the local Pop-up fairs and markets.
On another note...
I can't wait to get better so I can get back to my workouts. Sitting around and hooking for hours really does nothing for my figure... lol

Hi everyone out there,

But somehow I stille manage and I even have a blog where I post sometimes, welcome to everyone who's interested!…Continue
