Black Cushion with Lacy Heart from France Nadeau

I crocheted this heart a few years ago. It was afterward put aside, having no idea of what do with it. I had tried to pair it with white and beige fabrics, with no success. Finally, a few days ago, … Continue reading

Stash Report And Fabric Crochet from Quilt Paint Create

I did not buy any fabric this week and no Superbowl sales for me today. A local quilt shop is having a sale next week for Presidents Day that I may not be able to pass up. I have a week to think about that.
On the usage side, I crocheted this bowl from knit fabric that I used to make t-shirt yarn. The bowl is 1.75” deep and 3.5” across at the opening. Inside it would be a little wider.

The spice of (Highland) life . . . a ta-dah ! from Gilly Makes



A little while ago . . . ok, I admit it was actually last year . . . around September-time I think, I decided to join in with the lovely Cherry Heart 'Spice of Life' CAL - and as usual when it comes to me and a CAL or a KAL, I always start off with great gusto and a determination to keep up.  But somehow life has other plans and nine times out of ten, by the time the "Along" is half-way through, I've already fallen behind schedule.  
But this time I decided almost right from the beginning that my Spice of Life blankie would ...

Doraemon - An amigurumi attempt from Made To Treasure

This is my first attempt on making a crochet toy..

Amigurumi was not my favorite ..
even though i enjoy crocheting little strawberries...

It all started when my brother shared a picture of a crochet Doraemon
their kids favorite character, that have conquered their home since some time..

I was not really exited to try...until when i talked to my sis(in law),
 i realized they all love this small character even though they cannot watch anything else on TV..lol

So i did a research on google to see how to go about it...

I got a you tube ...

Machine Quilting is Done, and some other Blog updates from Cats in the Quiltoriium

I did the quilting on Allietare over several days, so I didn't hurt my neck or shoulders.

Just an allover large stipple or meander or whatever it is called when you don't cross over your previous quilting.

I am ready to make binding, I will use the same gold as the inner border, because I already have some leftover binding from my scrappy double irish chain, and I have enough yardage for the rest of the binding.

That means, the only fabric I purchased for this quilt was backing, outer border and the gray constant. Every other scrap ...

Some Covers For Old Jars from Alsha's Space

Wow, after Christmas and all, I find that I have lost my mojo, if you understand me!!

I simply cannot settle down and get into things yet - so I decided to try some bits and biobs that I can finish eally quickly, hoping that the old mojo will reappear if she is satified with them.

I'm not sure it's working. Yet.

So this is what I have done:



Here's the first jar - for my makeup brushes. At least they will be kept tidy now, instead of being thrown into the drawer!


Number 2 jar is for my ...

Catching up . . . from Gilly Makes

Hello lovelies . . .  well, I started this year off with a determination to find my seemingly lost bloggy mojo and here we are, already almost at the end of January and still nary a post since the beginning of the month.
I'm not sure where it's been hiding (the mojo, that is) - perhaps in a little corner recuperating from the higgledy-piggledy-ness of the past few months.  But here I am again . . . it's Monday,  the chores are done, the dog is walked, and I've got a cup of tea and a yummy biscuit to hand, so let ...

I Finished a Blanket from Alsha's Space

I did finally finish the star blanket that I showed you HERE.

I thought it would never, ever end! I wanted to do it for my granddaughter, but by the time I finished it, I think I was just about over it!!

It was worth it though!


Artistically arranged over the armchair number 1.


Artistically arranged number 2


A closeup of the border I decided on.

I was very pleased with the way it turned ut, and I am sure that Jessica was happy with it also.

It ended up not quite as large as I had hoped to do ...

Freeform Friday from Alsha's Space

Hi everybody! I hope that you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year period as we have here.

It's almost February already, so I decided that it is time to get back into the old blog!! I've had too much down time, I'll try to not let that happen again.

I also decided to bring back my "Freeform Friday", at least that's one thing I can start on, as I have been madly crocheting jar covers, for some old jars and empty bottles that I have, as I'm sure most of you also have ...

Textured crochet -3 from Made To Treasure

I was busy with few textured crochet stitches for last few weeks. 

While working too many projects...

suddenly i got crazy with textured crochet project and decided to start finishing..


This was crocodile crochet stitch ..I made 15" square patch and backed with 14" flannel fabric. 

When i started crocheting the crocodile stitch i got the clue that with decently stretchy yarn, this stitch tends to stretch more. so decided to make 15" square for 16" cushion..
and I'm glad that it worked fine..


This is the star cluster crochet stitch patch..

This was the last stitch i tried ...
