Three-Strip Flower Scarf

September 05, 2023 11 Comments
Lately, I've been exploring the crochet pattern book collection at my local library, and I came across a book (Vogue® Knitting on the Go! Crocheted Scarves Two)with a scarf pattern that I absolutely love.  Sometimes when I check out books, I'll crochet a project in the book, and sometimes I don't! But this time, I did. I was excited to try something new, especially since I knew this project would be perfect for the September Sustainable Craft Challenge. This month's theme is Nature, and the scarf I'm sharing has lots of crochet flowers and leaves.

Saturday Blue Jeans Baby Blanket

August 31, 2023 2 Comments
A couple years ago, I made a baby blanket for my aunt to celebrate her first great grandbaby. She loved the blanket and recently asked me to make a couple more baby blankets. She asked for a blue blanket and a pink blanket (Times Square Baby Blanket) just like the one I gifted her before. So far, I've finished the blue blanket, but I'm still working on the pink one.

Knit Jute Trivets

July 26, 2023 4 Comments
My mother fell in love with a "crochet" jute pot holder she saw online, but it was sold out. So she mentioned it to me. Of course, I took the hint and headed to Hobby Lobby for some jute to make a couple pot holders/trivets for her. The example she showed me looked very knit, not crochet, so I had to dig out my knitting needles and get to work. I'm not sure if I was knitting or purling, but I got them done! 😆😆😆

Antique Desk Makeover

June 06, 2023 6 Comments

Welcome to the June Sustainable Craft Challenge Blog Hop! The purpose of the Sustainable Craft Challenge Blog Hop (hosted by Julie @ Sum of Their Stories) is to create a sustainable/eco-friendly craft project. This month's theme is FRESH, so instead of buying a new desk, I decided to bring new life to my old desk with a fresh coat of paint.  So I've had this desk forever... like longer than I've been married, and I've been married almost 18 years! My father refinishes furniture, and he gave me the desk when I moved out of my parents' home and into my first apartment. When he gave it to me, it was painted tan and brown. I kept it tan and brown for several years until my family and I moved into a home where I found my own little special spot to create a craftroom. I wanted my tiny craftroom to have a color scheme, and the desk had to match that color scheme, of course. 😁

Crochet Wall Mounted Plant Holders

May 23, 2023 4 Comments
A couple months ago, my mom saw some wall mounted plant hangers in a Facebook group, and she fell in love with them. They were crochet, so she asked if I could make them. I've never made plant hangers before, but after doing a little searching online, I found the pattern for the plant hangers. Then I needed to get yarn. Once I had the pattern (Wall Mounted Plant Holder) and the yarn, I got to work!

Lilac Crochet Neckerchief

April 10, 2023 6 Comments

It's spring, and that means it's time to put away the winter coats, thick scarves, and warm beanies. But if you still like to wear scarves in the spring, then this crochet neckerchief is perfect. It'll add a fun pop of color to any outfit. This mini scarf would look great in any color, but for this one, I decided to make it with light purple yarn. I definitely plan on making more in different colors.
