It's been raining...and raining...
and raining some more today.
You know how much I love it!
I still laugh at myself for thinking it'll rain hard for 10 minutes then
stop for another 8 months like it did in Las Vegas.
(even though I know better here in Seattle.)
It's funny what you become accustomed to over the years.
So I sat, drinking hot tea by the fireplace,
(a loose leaf blend called "Seattle Sunset" from Savrika Tea in Kirkland )
listening to the rain against the window.
I started crocheting star garland with my favorite, linen yarn.
Star garland...for the holidays, or everyday.
You can make them any size, or any color.
I'm using a 3.50mm steel crochet hook with linen yarn.
Step 1: Ch 5, join with a slip st to form a ring.
Step 2: Ch 3. 14 dc into the ring. Slip st to 3rd ch of ch3 to form a circle.
Step 3: *Ch 5. 1 sc in 2nd ch, 1 hdc in next ch, 1 dc in next ch,
1 tr in next ch.Skip 2 dc, slip st in next dc.
Repeat from * to *…
"Art" is probably not the first word that comes to mind for most people when it rains. If you have ever seen a Rain Chain then maybe you'll understand why I think of it this way.
copper, metal, patina,
design, texture, beauty...
If you've read my blog for some time, you might remember, this "desert girl" is fascinated with rain chains. :-) I'm still traveling...Seattle...it's raining... I'm sharing my Rain Chain Art this week at Lisa Gordon's Creative Exchange I have been reading and enjoying your comments. When I'm back home, I will have more time to visit and get caught up with you. Hope your week is off to a great start! Becca
