Thread Angels Ornaments

I've been working on crocheting Thread Angels. These little beauties are fun to make. The little dresses are made and put onto special clothespins which then can be simply pinned onto a Christmas tree.

Don't let the simplicity fool you. I timed myself and each one of these takes me 2+ hours to make.

I have a picture of all that I have made so far (and I still have a few more to make), plus a single picture so you can see one close-up.

Spiderman Afghan

Here is a photo of the Spiderman Afghan that I finished yesterday. Image is clickable.

The pattern stated to repeat 3 rows, which stated main color for 2 rows, then 1 row of black, which I did. On page 2 of the pattern, it stated that the color sequence was 4 rows of main color and 1 row of black.

The pattern directions were conflicting in this regard. What do you expect from a free pattern? I'm not one to read ALL the directions before beginning a project. So, my main color rows should have been wider. Oh well.

Painting & Crocheting

For some reason my camera is telling me that there is no memory card. Hubby says it may be in backwards but I can't get the little "door" to open all the way. So as soon as that is resolved I'll post a picture.

I've been painting interior doors in the house. Whrew, there are a lot of them, especially when I'm also painting closet doors. We are doing a bit of "home improvement." The doors were originally brown and after priming, I'm painting them white. Quite an improvement! I've been working on them for 2 weeks and still have 3 doors left to paint, though I noticed that several of the doors will need another coat of paint. Hopefully I will get that finished today if I don't run out of paint!

My latest project is a Spiderman Afghan. A friend of mine is expecting a baby in March (I think) and one of her other children thinks that they should name the baby "Spiderman." So she is referring to the baby as "Spiderman" although they are not going to know the baby's gender until the birth. I thought this would be a fun gift for the baby. I'll try to post a picture later when the memory card is figured out.
