Word for the Year

As we begin 2018, contemplating last year and full of hope and inspiration for the new year to come, I have come to a conclusion. I don’t like new year’s resolutions. If you noticed my past new year’s blogs, I don’t believe I’ve managed to keep...

Happy New Year!

Yes, I know the title isn’t exactly that original, but I do want to wish all of you a wondrous new year full of all good things – health, fortune, beautiful yarn, and of course crochet! Arthur wishes you a happy new year also, but he enjoyed...

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

To all my wonderful followers and those people who visit one of my social sites throughout the year, I thank you for all your attention to and well-wishes for my efforts. All of you are the reason I’m still plugging along! I hope you all had a...

Not What You'd Expect

Normally I’d have a post with some wonderful photos of inspiration or links to patterns, especially for the holiday season. However, it seems that there is an overload of those types of posts, so I decided to do something a little different. I...

I realize that Halloween is coming up pretty fast, especially for those planning to create costumes and/or decorations for this annual “ode to spirits that have passed”. However, in my wanderings around the internet I discovered that there is a...

Inspirations #4: It's National Teddy Bear Day!

We love teddy bears. I don’t believe I have ever known someone who didn’t at least like teddies, and many people had one as a “best friend” as a child (me included!). Ever since the shopkeeper Morris Michtom and his wife Rose made a stuffed...

The Dog Days of Summer

I remember as a kid I would kind of dread August. First it meant that I only had one month of summer vacation left before school started (in Chicago school starts the day after Labor day). But second, August usually had the worst weeks of summer...

Inspirations #3: Perchance to Dream

I’m still in the process of making the afghan for my nephew and his soon-to-be new wife – I think I’m safe to say that because I don’t believe either one of them follow this blog! – and so I thought that doing a piece on dreamcatchers would be...
