New Shrug!

New cream cotton shrug!

New shrug is available in my Artfire shop, mattscraftywife!

I crocheted this lovely cream colored shrug with some fancy cotton/rayon yarn I bought recently. It is so soft and satiny! Feels great on the skin. Since a shrug usually touches the skin near the shoulders and neck, and part of the arms, it's nice when the material is soft. This cream shrug looks great with jeans as shown, or with shorts, a dress or a skirt and shirt. It is light and airy, crocheted in a open lacy design. Please check it out and let me know what you think. I designed this cream shrug myself, and love how cute it came out!

New Thread Crochet Listings!

Thread Crochet Listings

{Just click on the picture to go to the listing in my shop on Artfire.}

I have some new listings on Artfire now. Today I finished this angel:

I had fun making this one, the design is mine and I love how she turned out. Crocheted angels are so pretty and I can make them in any color or combination of colors. I also have a cross listed that I designed and can make in any color:

This crocheted cross has points that give it extra appeal. I can also add beads to this to make it sparkly and give it more interest. I have many colors of thread to make these items with, if anyone wants something different all they need to do is ask!

And my Breast Cancer Awareness Angels are great gifts for anyone who has survived breast cancer, or for anyone who has lost a loved one after a battle with breast cancer. This one is beaded and can hang in a car rearview mirror, on a wall or anywhere. She has a pink ribbon sewn on at her waist and a bead in the middle of it as well. I'm very proud of how she turned out, and since my mom passed away from breast cancer and a brain tumor 7 months ago, she has special meaning to me.
