Joann fabrics had doorbusters and this jumbo yarn on sale 3 for $20. They're @1,000 yds each. Before you poo-poo this yarn, hear me out. It's perfect for something I needed - a small washable rug for winter. My feet have been cold on the bare floor when I sit at my table. Pulling from… Continue reading Crochet rug
Made for the charity Project Linus, granny patterns are great for destashing acrylic yarn, which is what the charity prefers.
Dropping this "big kid" blanket in cheerful colors off to Project Linus. Loved working on it. Hope it's a comfort.🧡💙💚💛
Made these for someone who eats PBJ everyday and they like silly stuff. Before gifting, a quick photo session in the spring green grass. They loved these. Happy crocheting!

This one is in Opera #10 (Coats & Clark, but discontinued) in a #582 Robin's egg blue. I… Continue reading Nostalgia Doilies for tea

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.
