A New Crochet Plant Hanger

**UPDATE** Near the end of the pattern, when making the hanging straps, I had originally put 29 sc between the straps.  I have changed that to 27 sc because I followed the pattern twice myself and the straps were not evenly spaced.  Sorry for any trouble that may have caused.

By far the most popular post on this blog is the pattern for the crochet plant hanger.  You can find the original post with pictures here and the post with the pattern here.  So, I was thinking since I've learned a lot more about crochet since making the original pattern it was time to make a new one!  I love these for store bought hanging baskets.  I think they are so much prettier than those metal wire or plastic hangers!

Unfortunately,  I came up with the pattern at the end of last Summer, so these pictures leave a lot to be desired.  I'll update them when there is something more colorful to fill my hanging baskets. :)


Pretty sure the neighbors thought I was crazy trying to get this picture! ;)

Materials:

Hook size US H8 / 5mm
Tapestry needle
Wooden ring
10 inch flower pot
Scissors
Lilly Sugar and Cream cotton yarn

Mason Jar Solar Light

Hi.  I FINALLY got around to doing a project I’ve wanted to do since LAST spring.  It’s the mason jar solar light.  I’ve seen a few tutorials for them online.  I wish I could post a link but since it’s been a year I don’t know where I first saw it.  Pinterest most likely!
Anyway, here’s the final product!

Not the best picture, but you get the idea.  I take most all of my pictures with my phone, but it fails me with low light shots.
I did get some good progress shots though.

Quick Closet Makeover

Hi!  So, I've been in full on spring cleaning mode.  I want to purge my house of everything!  At least until I start "purging" and realize I want to keep most of my stuff. lol

Anyway, one thing I have been purging is the girls' closet.  I did pretty good, but it still looked pretty bad, until today!
