The tiny workshop will have 2 windows and though I want to stay away from too much fabric out there, I did want something special. These were crocheted with Aunt Lydia's Bamboo thread (which is crazy soft, unlike bedspread cotton), in the color mushroom and with a free pattern called Lacy Heart Curtains but I… Continue reading Filet Crochet Valances
We have a new granddaughter and she's just precious. Some crochet that was made for her arrival. Here are links to the patterns: Purple crocheted hat, purple crocheted sweater, pink knit sweater and the white hat has no pattern, but the pom was bought at Michael's.
A new teapot cozy for the teapot I recently purchased. This one is made of 2 granny squares to fit each side, then seamed in anyway I could come up with to keep the 2 pieces together. The rose is an Irish rose, free patterns for this are everywhere online. I had the teapot on… Continue reading Tea and Roses – a Teapot Cozy

This is a free pattern found on Ravelry and this one is made from Feza Softie. I love that it makes the decorative edge as you go.
This Windowpane Scarf was so easy to make and the yarn creates all the "WOW". I had this yarn sitting around for a while and lately, I've been on a mission to use up my older stash when possible. I can't say I'm on a "yarn diet" because, as with ANY diet, I am not… Continue reading Windowpane Scarf
I was able to use up some older stash in this shawl that kept asking, "What's my purpose? Why do you buy so much sock yarn and never use it?" Ugh. I really need to shop less and create more - possibly even destash a bit. I just love all the sock yarn colorways people… Continue reading Irish Fantastica Crocheted Shawl
Added one of my picot shell borders. I love the Seraphina shawl - if you haven’t made one - DO IT - This is my 10th! The yarn was dreamy. Use the link above to get any details about the project.
This yarn is amazing - so soft, but it's a bit fragile, so I crochet with it. It feels like it may break when blocking if you do knit with it, so maybe be extra careful. The picture doesn't do it justice, but I had to snap one and it was near 90 out (yes,… Continue reading Alpine Frost Wrap/Scarf
