My Latest Work #5: A Bad Case of the Doldrums

For whatever reason, I’ve been dealing with a rather long period of the “blahs”. It’s not often I get this way and usually after a couple weeks I snap out of it, but this time it’s lingering. This is how I felt by Christmas, and I ended up...

To You and Yours -

Wishing all a bright, warm, and wonderful holiday season!

My Latest Work #4: One Resolution Completed!

Yes, after many years I have FINALLY completed one of my New Year’s resolutions. This has nothing to do with crochet (register astonishment here), but it was a Martha Stewart Christmas craft project from at least 2008, if not before. Yes, I am...

Sweet Little Snowflake - Free Pattern

Not too long ago I came across a post from Anabelia Craft Design offering a delightful Stars Garland (free pattern here). I tried her pattern and it came out wonderfully, but I was really looking for a dainty snowflake pattern. After playing a...

Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s always a good idea to have a special time of year to stop, look around you, and and take an accounting of all your blessings. Along with my family and friends, I’d like you to know that all of you are certainly counted among mine. Let the...

My Latest Work #3: I'm Baaack!

My Latest Work #2: Just Buy the Pattern!

You know, they say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. And sometimes life just makes sure I don’t forget it. I’ve been crocheting fairly consistently now for about 30 years and I consider myself at an intermediate level, although I’ve...

My Latest Work #1: I am SO Frustrated!

You know, technology is wonderful – when it works. If you’ve been following my wondrous blog, you’ll know that my nephew and his wife are expecting a baby girl in December. So of course I have been in the process of making crocheted items for...

Pattern Review / Product for Sale #3: I've Been Busy

I have totally fallen off the track with posting as I had promised myself at New Year’s. I went to a wonderful 4th of July/family reunion party and had a great time, but within a couple days the weather went to 112 degrees and I didn’t handle it...

Inspirations #10: It's Fairy Day!

I have a definite sweet spot in my heart for all things amigurumi (or kawaii softies, if you prefer), and one of my absolute favorites are fairies. International – yes, INTERnational – Fairy Day has been designated for June 24th this year. (Just...
