Hanging about

Okay... so what were you doing before breakfast this morning? Having seen some rather fantabulous crochet covers for coat hangers on Dottie Angel last night... together with instructions... I had my hook and yarn out by 7.30 am. By breakfast time I'd finished this.

Now I'll be the first to admit it's more than a little less than perfect... and where I should have had thirteen shells I ended up with twelve so it's all a little stretched. But I still rather like it... and would like to make lots more except this was the only wooden coat hanger I could find.

Which is just as well really as I've a deadline in two weeks time and instead of crocheting coat hangers I should be working on my final fashion designs and samples.

So if you see me lurking on here over the weekend please send me back to my drawing board with a slapped wrist and a stern talking to. Hope you have a happy weekend!

  2. I hear your procrastination you know. My house was never so organised and tidy as it was during the revision prelude to exams.

  5. I'm sure your short crochet session before breakfast refreshed you for the rest of the day, and you have a super hanger to display your fashion items on!

  7. I agree with Heather - I'm sure it put a spring in your step for the rest of the day :) I'm terrible at (not) getting the things done I should be, but instead speeding ahead with the things that make me smile :) Have a great weekend :)

  10. Crochet at 7.30am !! I'm impressed. I am very naughty when it comes to putting thngs off, so I won't slap your wrist if I see you in blogland. I'll just go ahem, cough cough. Is that ok?

  11. Dottie angel is enough to get us all into bad ways - in the nicest possible way! Lovely hanger! I found a pattern today for knitted covered hangers from the 60s so was going to have a go at that.

  18. there is nothing like a serious deadline looming to make the mind wander! I'm sure you'll get organised in plenty of time though and those are rather deliciously lovely coathangers - well worth the distraction!

  19. You are truly amazing Gina! How do you manage to fit so much into one day. Who else is up crocheting before breakfast on a Sunday morning?

  21. Aren't diversionary crafts always the most beguiling?

    Love the hanger.

  22. Ha! You're back again with those cute hangers. (Can you tell I'm reading your posts in reverse order?) Nope. It wasn't Dottie Angel. They were done in red and white and I can see the picture....
