    crochet angels that were almost the death of me!

    Made these for a a friend, at her request.... ( hate doing multiples of things!!!) I figured she wanted one or two.... NOOOOOO, she wanted 24!!!! and the pattern didnt fit the clothes pins she bought... so every angel is slightly different as i refined the pattern each angel I made ... WHEW....... but they did turn out cute, if I do say so myself!

    Where did you get the pattern for the dress? I love to crochet and these angels are really cute. You did a wonderful job!

    the basic pattern came from a booklet friend had purchased, but did not fit the clothes pins at all.. so I winged it and just made a simple pattern as I crocheted... I've seen several simular via google tho....

    I don't know what she is going to do with them.... she gives alot of gifts at business functions. She also, does alot of themed stuff.... so could be either one! She's hinting there are 4 clothes pins left.... sigh....

    Those are sooo cute! And I know exactly what you mean about making multiples of things. That bores me to pieces, too!

    They are beautiful, you did a wonderful job. Good for you to make 24 of them.

    Just tell me this..... is SUCKER stamped on my forehead??????
    She brought me a " few other " patterns she would love to have IF I have time......... one is a crochet table topper with dragon flies in the corners( hmm my dtr would like this....) ....one is a 11 inch tall tree topper angel ) at least this one is starched and not gathered and full)( I've done a simular one before.... need to see if I can find my pattern-- it had beads crocheted into the skirt)......and the last one is a chain stitch luminaries ( covered mason jars) No hurry, no deadlines....... oh if this isn't bad enough.. I told her to bring me the remaining 4 clothes pins and I'd see about getting them done, now that I got the pattern refined down....

    I swear I need my mouth glued SHUT!

    *honestly I dont mind..... I do these type of project when we travel or while watching TV*

    Thanks everyone for the encouraging words.....

    Those angels are awesome. I loved them and understand about multiples of things too. That is part of my crochet block right now plus I'm not crazy about the yarn color.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    very nice, and the dragon fly table topper sounds very nice also. I love dragon flies. You are a good woman to help your friend as you have done.

    They are cute. but I know how you feel. that's why I hate doing (promising) things for others. Now, I enjoy it...at first. Then I feel the presure and it zaps the fun right out of it !

    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.
