MAKE THE YARN:
My baby hasn’t even been born yet and already he or she could use their own quilt rack.
Thanks to wonderfully talented family and friends, my baby is definitely going to be spoiled in the handmade department. Here’s a little eye candy for your Thursday as I share the wonderful creations that have been made for my little one.
My aunt and I have talked before about how the recipients of our quilts often have no idea of the cost or work that goes into the gift. That of course doesn’t apply when she gave me a ...read more
Sometimes I like to try a little crochet, just to break things up. Plus, my quilting isn’t particularly portable. So, with scarfs being all the rage and me having a bag of needlepoint yarn, I decided to try my hand at a scarf.
I could sort of see it in my mind as I started…
Just a batch of flowers in all different colors.
I used THIS tutorial for the flowers and just joined them up as I went along.
The scarf is planned as a gift for a very fashionable collegue who is leaving the school this spring ...read more

If we do it along with a friend, who keeps you motivated…that is the most lovely time to work along..
Both of us, lovers of pineapple lace , we decided to do a table runner ..
From my earlier posts , you must have guessed I'm a lazy bump to repeat a pattern..
This runner worked because of the crochet along, otherwise i would have sidelined it to my WIP bin…
repeating the same pattern 3 times would have been a boring job for me ...read more
This is my first product in a tecnique new to me; tunisian crochet /railway knitting
I also crocheted scallops along the edges, also a first time for me. Not perfect, but it was fun, I will make more!
Schachenmayr Cotton Time; which was a good choice. The cotton yarn did not split, and it is washable. I used a chrochet hook 5mm from Knit Pro with a cord.
The pattern is from a norwegian book called "Hekling og hakking til kjøkkenet" by Tove Fevang. The book is now available in a cheaper version in the grocery ... read more
Happy Hump Day Everyone,
I hope everyone’s week is going good so far. Mine has been busy but that’s the story of my life.
Bizzy Lady and I attended our first DAMQG Retreat and we had so much fun. The ladies are so much fun and we all click together. I cannot wait till the next retreat.
I was able to get a lot of things completed that I had on my list. I made caramel, chocolate and toffee potato chips and they were a big hit. So these have been added to my baking list of things ...read more
I know it's been a long while since I have blogged. I always wish I was better at blogging but then life seems to get in the way and I put it off. Well, I am going to try to do more of it...even if it's just quick posts to let you know what is going on in my little corner of the world and since it's Wednesday I want to share with you my current WIP. (Work in progress.)
We have had a VERY long winter here this year and spring is coming...I know ...read more

Phew, my last post was in January, and let me say I've been flat out since. I started back at work after my super long 7 week break over Christmas, I've been preparing ( and partying) in the lead up to my friends wedding and I'm in the process of moving house. Excitement (and fatigue) is prominent in the Seraphym Household at the moment.
Of course, being a craft nut (addict), and a Art/Textiles teacher, I've still been crafting like crazy just not blogging about it. So fair to say I'm hoping to get a ...
I recently took a crochet class at Erica’s and am totally hooked on it! Pun intended. :)
I’ve been a quilter for years, but was always intimidated by knitting and crocheting. But not any longer! I wanted to share with you how easy it is to learn a new craft in case any of you are in the same boat I was.
Kim started me off with two basic supplies: a crochet hook and a skein of yarn. As a general rule of thumb, chunky or bulky yarn takes a larger hook and fine yarn takes a smaller hook ...read more
Freezer meals! I thought you were probably wondering what I had been up to since I promised not to bombard you with daily blog entries. I’m sure you are probably wondering, why freezer meals? If not, you might want to pretend. Honestly, it’s because we need to eat better as a family and sometimes life seems to be too busy to cook the way I like to. So, freezer meals and my crock pot seem to be a perfect answer to that! Of course this means I have been spending an inordinate time on Pinterest (like I need ...read more
Detroit, MI was dumped with 4+ inches of snow today. I was lucky enough to work from home today so I didn’t have to deal with the drive to work today. I hope this is our last big snow. I’m so ready for warm weather and sunshine.
Well I’m getting very excited, the DAMQG Retreat is two days away. I have finally decided on what projects I’m going to take, at least I think I did. I have one more day before I pack up my projects.
These are the items that was we ...read more
