Crochet Idea Has It Been Done.

I was thinking of my friend Lola who wrote me that she has been selling Doilies on EBay and has sold tons of them. Then like a true ADHD person my mind was racing along to what's online. Today I thought of a Christmas tree skirt.

The skirt pattern I used can be found here:

I used a H hook and did 27 rows. On the last row of red, I continued the double crochet st to finish it off.

This is the one special garden I have been waiting to see. Here it says she has some rare Hostas. She admits to collecting. I can't wait to see the native flowers she said was there when they moved in. Lets see if the street view embed. works.

.................Harvey's rare Hosta plant, which she plans to name Milky Way, is believed to be an offshoot of the spilled milk hosta. Once it is registered, Harvey will name the hosta and also can choose to sell divisions of the plant or create a tissue culture from it and make it available to other hosta growers...............

...............In addition to the Milky Way hosta, another unique hosta in Harvey's garden is the Sadie Hybben Harvey, a plant Harvey named for her late dog and for Menomonie photographer Pete Hybben, who helps her in the garden.
Harvey tries to recycle as much as possible in her garden, using leaves and pine needles for mulch............
I did go and sorry but I forgot to take a picture of the special hosta.

There has been curent articles in the papers and an appearance on the local news.
