Single Colour Granny Square Crochet Squares from Samelia's Mum




The other week, I was inspired to start a new crochet project. Attic 24 was the source of my inspiration. Honestly, Lucy's blog is just the perfect place to visit for crochet inspiration. Her projects and photographs are always super bright and happy and as a newbie to this world of yarn and crochet, I've found her posts to be a wonderful place to learn. Quick, go check out her blog. You won't be disappointed. 

So my new project is perfect for using up left over yarn. Bits of yarn, a 4.5mm hook (I think the ...

I Shall Crochet Sea Shells... from CollectInTexas Gal

...Oh, how I wish it was by the Sea Shore!

The best I can hope for here in West Texas is by the rocks and docks at Lake Nasworthy!   Not happening here in the middle of hot July!  It's hot enough sitting in my air conditioned nest with a lap full of yarn.  Not complaining, mind you...just sayin'.

Truth be told, for the last three months my 'Nest' has been a Yarning Shawl-A-Rama!  This Sea Shell Wrap is #6 to come off of my zippity-do-da J crochet hook.  Just started this in gray and black this evening.  These ...

Different projects from Susan P Blog

I decided to take stock of the projects I am working on. This is similar to reading – I am always reading about five books at a time, because I like reading what I feel like at that moment. Same with needlework, it is much more fun to be able to pick and choose what I feel like. But when I am close to finishing a project I am normally quite keen to get it done.

Yesterday I made two bags. I have a friend who is always knitting for everyone. I can’t remember her ever knitting something for herself ...

So Much For Keeping It Simple from CollectInTexas Gal

The hardest thing about an 'Ending' is knowing where to 'Start'.  That's where I am now that I don't have a work schedule to follow.  It's where I am when I walk into my studio where I have organized and re-stocked my stashes of fabric, yarn, notions, lace, trims, buttons and all of the frenzied liquidation shopping stuff.

So much for my 'Stash Busting' proclamations of Use It or Lose, Sue...and just when I was making headway in that regard.  So much for the '4R's Bucket List'...you know the one where last year I ...

Baby It's Cold Outside! from Alsha's Space

Just dropping by to let you know that we shall now have until next Sunday, and then we will be back to normal and the word photo will be "black".
Of course I will post another "black" also!

Last night it was around 6 degrees Celsius here - the coldest temperaw ture for June since I don't know when. Tonight is shaping up to be just as cold, so we have the aircon on to try and keep us warm.  I hear that it has been below freezing elsewhere, so wer are pretty lucky I guess!

I have been very ...

Primavera flowers ...... from Made To Treasure

I sometimes get attracted to a project when someone do it in their lovely choice of colors...
Ninu's choice of colors always attracts me...
thats how i went to Dada's place to look out for the pattern..

That place was nothing different....i felt like I'm in a beautiful garden of lovely flowers.

I immediately wanted to start that project...but didn't have the exact colors that i loved...
and decided to start with what ever i have...


...and this is my garden of Primavera flowers...

I crochet it into a 53" x 38 " throw ...

Mega Scrap Project from Heart Desire Creations

pile of scraps

So very many scraps! There are six  boxes (14″ x 11″ x 6.5″) filled with fabric pieces left over from other projects.

scrap bin (Large)

I do not cut mine into strips or squares because I do not want to limit their use. They are sorted by color. I randomly chose a bunch of pieces from each box and cut them into 1 1/2″ strips. As you can see, there is no order to this pile! What am I making? A rug! There is a little sewing involved. I sewed the ends of two strips together, then took an open end ...

Crochet: Amigurumi Cupcake Kitten from Craftcore

This entry is part 9 of 10 in the series 30 Crafty Projects to Complete Before I’m 30.

I dusted off my crochet hooks for this adorable project: an Amigurumi Cupcake Kitten!  I followed the tutorial available at Stuff Susie Made.

As some background, a few years ago I bought a set of crochet hooks.  I made a somewhat crooked test swatch and set crochet aside.  Last September, my friend Lea reinvigorated me to try to pick them up again, and she got me to start a granny square:

Denim & Dementia: Minding the Gap from Gefilte Quilt

Did you ever notice that the word "dementia" has "denim" in it? No, I'm sure you didn't, and neither did I, until I wrote this blog post.

This didn't start out to be a quilt about anything in particular, except fun with denim scraps. (For earlier fun, click "Denim" in the word cloud on the lower right of this page.) 

I began it the same way as my denim-and-lace piece from last week: With a raw-edge denim surface, on top of cotton batting, and a backing fabric. I pinned the layers together, then quilted them on a ...

Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival 2016 from Becca's Crazy Projects

Every year I try to go to the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival.

This year was no different. The mud was spectacular. So was the shopping.
This is how I feel as we approach the day. I can see the wool but I have to wait. This is one of the most dedicated sheep dogs I have ever seen work.
Every year I go to watch the dogs work. They never fail to put a smile on my face.
If you ever get a chance to go watch the dogs work I highly recommend it.
All the working dogs amaze me ...
