A Giant Crochet Doily Rug for Our Living Room

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

You’ve all seen the pictures on Pinterest for that giant doily rug.  I repinned it myself.  It’s just gorgeous and it led me to search for others of its kind.  Sadly, there are many out there, but no one has bothered to offer up tutorials or patterns.  Two weeks ago, I set out to correct […]

Project Pretty Link Party: Hanger Hack

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

So, I’ve never done a link party before but Jen, over at I Heart Organizing, started a Project Pretty link party.  How can I say “no” to Jen?  She only has the most awesome blog ever!  I’ve been saving this yarn for a long time, just waiting for the right opportunity to use it.  Hanger […]

Holiday Tip #1

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

    Use a hat as a tree topper. If you have pets or small children and you’re just not willing to risk great-grandma’s angel or that blown glass star, consider using a winter hat as a tree topper.  You could use a store bought Santa or elf hat, or you could simply recycle one […]

What happens when you’re addicted to being addicted

Friday, February 13th, 2009

I have an addictive personality.  Nothing harmful, mind you, unless you count cigarettes.  I have a life-long addiction to those.  But I get addicted to other things very easily.  Chocolate.  Coffee.  The usual.  I got addicted to crochet when my mom showed me how to make my own poncho 35 years ago.  Thanks to her, […]

Revenge of the crochet font!

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

One of the most agonizing things in the world is to have your computer crash.  You back up your files, put your ducks in a row, use every known virus protection, and still things slip through the cracks.  When my computer crashed, it died completely, taking every single file with it.  Some of them were […]

Floral button cozies: A free pattern

Friday, July 25th, 2008

o, I developed this little flower fixation for awhile. I can’t explain it, but I found that the same flower pattern can be used to surround buttons. That quick, I made a plain white shirt custom made for my daughter’s shorts. I also made more flowers for her to attach to her flip-flops. Instant custom, […]

This is what happens when I get bored…

Friday, July 11th, 2008

So, the constant droning of hammers and saws on my roof finally got to me. In the middle of cleaning house and making dinner, I got bored. And when I get bored, I make things. I usually make tedious things. Today, I made a font that I can use to create patterns out of crochet […]

New stitches / Old bitches

Monday, July 7th, 2008

I’m going to make a new scarf. I bought the yarn because the texture looked oh-so-cool and reminded me of a jacket my dad had when I was a kid. But I need a new stitch, something I haven’t done a million times, something worthy of the yarn. So, I went looking. I haven’t found […]

Things I’ll never get around to

Tuesday, June 24th, 2008

There are about a hundred things I’d like to do that I know I’ll never get around to.  I’d like to write a cookbook.  I have some great recipes passed down from my mom and grandmother.  And I have a few things of my own that I think would be awesome.  But even if my […]
