Crochet Crazy from Becca's Crazy Projects

Aunt Betty dropped off a bunch of Mandala yarn a few weeks back and I've been trying to use it up. I almost always have at least one crochet project going at a time. I wanted to use this easy 2-row repeat design called "domes" to make another triangle shawl. This stitch is from Crochet Every Way Stitch Dictionary: 125 Essential Stitches to Crochet in Three Ways. A great stitch dictionary if you are into crochet stitch dictionaries and designing your own crochet projects.  
I wasn't getting the texture I wanted by doing one row in the the ...

A Charming Country Christmas and More from Quilts....etc.

Edited at 9:16 am — I didn’t realize until one reader mentioned it that I didn’t schedule the time right on my blog for it to post and that it hadn’t gone out early as usual – fixed that!  I always write my post in the evening and schedule for the morning. Only 3 more […]

Quilting, Piecing from Quilts....etc.

In my world I could repeat my day every day and just replace the projects that I work on (and sometimes it is the same one) – I get up, I make my coffee, I sit at the computer and get caught up on mail, blogs, news – get breakfast, and then finally look things […]

Crochet Madness from Becca's Crazy Projects

I've been working up some swatches using my copy of Crochet Every Way Stitch Dictionary: 125 Essential Stitches to Crochet in Three Ways to make things. This was my swatch for a cowl. 
A friend gave me this cake of Caron Chunky and it seemed perfect for a chunky cowl. Aft I swatched, I cast on the right number of stitches and got hooking! This project took only a couple days to work up. Super quick with bulky yarn.
On Sunday morning I was almost done. 
It's kind of lumpy, but I like it anyway. Now I just ...

Piecing and Quilting from Quilts....etc.

I could have gotten done with so much more than I did yesterday – but I just didn’t feel like it!!  I felt like taking a break – in the morning I sat and knitted while watching a show I had recorded.  I normally do not sit and watch tv in the daytime! In the […]

Crochet Every Way from Becca's Crazy Projects

I wanted to make another shawl using a new design and some Caron Cakes yarn.
I grabbed my copy of Crochet Every Way Stitch Dictionary: 125 Essential Stitches to Crochet in Three Ways, some yarn, and got swatching. I have way more stitch dictionaries than I probably need but I had to add this one to my collection. It does something most stitch dictionaries don't do: it tells you how to shape the stitches it tries to teach you. I really like this book because it does exactly that. It teaches you how to work the stitch designs flat ...

Quilting and Yarn from Quilts....etc.

My blog friend Paola from Milano Italy saw that I asked how she was doing and got in touch – she and her family are fine and none of their acquaintances are sick.  She is in Northern Italy though so they are in the “locked down zone”  they have to stay put in their region […]

Slow Scrappy Sunday from Rose Prairie Quilts and Farm

It has been a very nice slow Sunday. The "man of the place" has been at his dads all day so I have had the house to myself. 

I decided this morning that I was going to purge and declutter my scraps of fabric. I have accumulated so much over the past decades, seriously decades. 

As you can see I have quite a bit of scrap fabric. I have divided it up over time by color and that had worked really well for me. But my love for quilting isn't quite what it used to be and I have ...

One of Those Days from Quilts....etc.

The house needed to be cleaned what can I say – not much in the sewing room.  I think I was busy all morning, laundry, washing the kitchen floor, vacuuming, and the dreaded dusting!  One room done on that and all of the ceiling fans!!  but that meant no sewing room stuff.  I did get […]
