My Latest Work #3: I'm Baaack!

Yes, I know. I kind of fell off the map for awhile, but before I go visit my Mom for her 92nd birthday, I felt I should throw a post together – just to make sure you all don’t think I’ve retired to some remote island somewhere. So, this is what...

The Crazy Crochet Journey #8: Scary but Good Change

After logging on today, I realized it had been way too long since I have shared anything with my friends here at Crochet Community! Life has been insane, friends! In the last seven months since I last blogged, I stopped working as much, lived in...

need help finding a pattern

I have lost a crochet pattern for shells. It has 2 double crochets, 2 chains and 1 single crochet in the same stitch, I am in the middle of the afghan and can’t find how to end and start. I am not an experienced crocheter. If anyone can...

Pattern Review / Product for Sale #2: Product Photography 101 (!%$#!?!)

In keeping with having products in my store to sell, I have just added another (and very colorful) item for sale – the Boucle Delight Cowl. I had originally made this as a scarf, but it ended up a little short, so i decided to convert it to a...

Arthur is Getting a Girlfriend!

I went online to find Arthur a girlfriend. At first, the best I could find was Re-Ment posable skeletons. They are numbered so you can tell which one you’re getting – #1 man I believe is the smallest at 3 1/4" tall, #2 is supposed to be a...
