Hooked on Hangers

I just finished a few more "happy hangers"
and this time I did manage the 13 shells...
I love them...
They are my new favorite thing....
Can't you tell...

For a tutorial of the "utmost"...
Head on over to a peachy perfect tutorial
with the ever delightful Dottieangel and her crocheting "what not" ways...
Just reading the tutorial is half the fun of making these pretties!!!


Below is a little flickr upload I did on the day after
posting my giveaway...
I hope the picture and words express how I feel about
the amazing response and well wishes I have
had from everyone...
I will be closing the giveaway very soon...
As I think I will need some time to write out everyone's name
on Crispy white paper...
I will pop a little edit at the end of the giveaway post to let everyone know
when it is closed...
and the very best luck to all my sweet dearies...

I awoke this morning...oh so early...
at 7 am...to start the usual...

packing lunches and organizing children...
Once they were heading out the door I turned the computer on

and sat down to check my inbox from my post...
Words can not even describe the overwhelming feeling that washed over me...
I floated around in a daze too emotional and shocked to say much at all...
So I thought pictures would help convey how it made me feel...
This is me this morning

wishing I could just say more
and talk to you all personally
about how sweet you are ,
you make me want to dress in something pretty
and crochet another Grandma cushion...
If that makes sense.
I love reading all your dear comments...
THANK YOU!!!

Hi Michelle, I am sorry I have been so busy and haven't visited for so long! I have missed out on all the truly amazing things you have been up to! Silly me! Your hangers are gorgeous and the grandma cushions, what more can I say?

Your crochet always delights me. I will make sure I get my routine mojo back so I stop missing out on your amazing creations (and everyone else's!)

such GORGEOUS hangers Michelle I love them. I use some my nan crocheted way back in the 70s. You can print out your comments pages and cut them up that way, might be easier than writing out 100+ names!!

I so love reading your blog. Your crochet work is always so beautiful. The hangers will definitely have to go on my ever-growing To-Do List! I love the purple shirt you are wearing in the third photo down of this post... did you by any chance crochet those flowers and add them to a shirt? If so, please tell us how you did it :)
