My new hobby is hooking....

As in crochet hooks! I decided to take up crocheting so that I could have something to do that is easy to pick up and travel with. Several coworkers also crochet, and they inspired me to try. I watched a few YouTube videos, bought some yarn, and got started. I have completed a few projects so far....I will upload a few pictures as soon as I can :-)

Key Hooks

This was made to welcome my fiance.  He has mentioned a couple of times that we needed a place to hang keys.  He had one at his house, and missed it when he was at my house.  Soon, my house will become our house when he moves over here, and I wanted a few things to welcome him. 

This was made from a honest-to-goodness barnwood frame that had been made for a cross-stitch project I received as a gift many years ago.  I had long ago shelved the project, as it no longer matched my decor, but always wanted a reason to re-purpose the frame.  I had to alter it is bit, as it was homemade and the glass did not quite fit right.  It is now a traditional 11 X 14 frame.  I framed the picture (one of my favorites from our original engagement session) and added the cup hooks below.
