As you can tell from my lack of blog posts this summer, I was taking a break from working on my computer - it was great to spend time outdoors reading books, photographing wildlife, going for bike rides and having fun with my family. And now that the school year is about to begin, I have a good amount of catching up to do!
Yes, I went to Ireland with Annie's and Craftours - it was wonderful! Stay tuned for photos and stories from that trip.
But for now I have a small project to show you - Sand Dollar Earrings.
I love to beach comb and find all kinds of 'treasures' from unique shells to sea glass. I would love to find a Sand Dollar but I haven't visited a beach that would have some. I remember our neighbor bringing one home from Myrtle beach and being impressed by the delicate design on top. I tried to replicate its pretty design with these earrings and thought they would make a unique accessory.
You can find the pattern in the August 2016 issue of the digital magazine, I Like Crochet -
These work up very quickly and would be a great addition to your outfit for a Labor Day weekend barbecue to celebrate the last days of summer!
