Good morning Friends ~
Here it is Monday morning, for us, and the start of a new week.
It is hot and humid down here, but a lot of you are having hotter temperatures. I do hope you all are keeping as cool as possible, and do not work too long out in the heat. Drink plenty of water.
DH is working on the neighbor’s roof, this is the third day now, but at least he’s been under the shade of a huge oak tree. It’s not as bad in the shade as it is in the sun. He drinks water all day long and that’s good.
Here are some crocheted sea creatures. I found the instructions through Mira’s blog here.
Susan the creator of these patterns can be found here, with instructions that she has freely given. She just wants people to not claim the directions as their own, giving her credit and you can sell the items you create. She has really created some neat patterns.
I love working with fine thread, so that’s what I chose. These are made with size 30, except for the peachy colored conch and that is size 50.
These are tiny.
The peach conch is 1 3/4” long x 1 1/8” wide by 3/4” high.
The small conchs are 1” x 1” x 3/4” high.
Star fish, roughly 1 3/4” point to point.
Sand dollar 3/4” in diameter.
Angel fish 1 3/4” long by 1” wide.
Even though they are tiny, they take time, from around 25 minutes to almost an hour. I wear my stronger glasses working with this size thread.
I love how they turned out.
I do hope all of you that need rain will get some soon. We’ve not had any since a week ago Sunday when we got that 4”-5”. Everything is green and growing like crazy. It will be time for me to get back outside in the mornings to get more done out in the gardens.
Here are some photos taken a week or so ago.
This was taken yesterday morning.
That’s it for now.
