A little crochet.... from frog cottage designs

I've finally started my Ripple blanket, pattern by Attic24, Yay!! 

I started to crochet when I was 5 and spent many hours crocheting away.  I've taught a few foster kids as well as my daughters to crochet, as its an easy craft to learn when your young. I've been reading lots of crochet posts on blogs lately which has inspired me to grab the hook!

Crochet Dish Scrubber Tutorial from Patchwork Posse

how to crochet a scrubber

I saw a dish scrubber the other day that had little floppy bumps all over one side so it could scrub a little bit better than a flat surface.  After looking and thinking for a bit I decided to give the crochet hook and design a little bit of work and came up with this crochet […]

Snuggies from Bizarre Quilter

Even though they are not quite finished, Shelley and Rhette needed to snuggy under their blankies...
 both feeling a bit under the weather, and really, it's all a crafter asks for is her creations to be used, loved and appreciated.

 Here is a pic of the robot and dinosaur bunting hanging in situ.
And even though I'd love to get them finished, (and the purple one on the couch which is for my sister expecting her first baby), the mailman brought the horse fabrics to make my little girl's quilt.... and I'm going to try to ...

A little distraction from Bizarre Quilter

At the same time as juggling deadlines for the July cushion, I am trying to finish two crochet blankets. When will they be finished? Er. How long is a piece of wool. No really, I want to use as much of the wool as possible. So I will make them as large as possible.
 I've just joined on another piece to Shelley's blanket, and it is now doubled in size. It's just big enough to go over her body. Really needs to be bigger. Of course, ends must also be sewn in.
I am loving the variegated ...

The pattern is from Simply Crochet Issue 18 and I used a mix of various DK yarns from my favourite online yarn shop Tangled Yarn.

It's a fun way to use up yarn from your stash too, don't you think ?  

Right, now that's ticked off the List,  I really need to knuckle down and catch up with my Orza KAL - I'm way behind everyone else so time ...

One of my favorite things in my kitchen is my crochet dishcloth.  This thing works wonderful!  I have a few in the drawer and I am always finding really there isn’t enough of them around.  Of course this led me to make a few more and now share the crochet dishcloth pattern. If you are […]

I've been . . . from Gilly Makes

. . . A little under the weather :  

knocked sideways for a couple of weeks by the lurgy that seems to be going around at the moment, so really wasn't feeling up to much.  As a result, I most annoyingly indeed,  missed out on the little sojourn in London at the Knitting & Stitching Show. 
 Isn't that just so infuriating when plans you've made go awry all because of a horrible little germ-bug?
And look who popped in at the Sew Me Something stand to say hello to Jules & Claire,

  none other than some of our favourite contestants from this year ...

What Took You So Long? from madebychrissied

A while ago I shared this crocheted blanket with you

during the making of which my pup Thatcher (Tatty to her friends) ate my bamboo crochet hooks several times

but I got there in the end and gifted the blanket to my eldest son

much to Tatty's disappointment.  

So just like any good puppy dog Mum I promised to make her her very own identical crochet blanket and set to it straight away almost finishing it in less than a week but didn't.  The blanket than sat in a knitting bag for the next year and the next ...

Crochet Cowl Pattern from Patchwork Posse

how to crochet a cowl tutorial

The weather around here has been so crazy. Warmer than usual but the evenings and mornings are pretty chilly. I have this thing for scarfs and cowls. This crochet cowl is really simple. You crochet in a circle and use an extra large needle so the stitches are big and kind of stretchy. You can decide […]

A Cowl for Mum from Scraps of My Life

Hello, hello!

You may recall that I made a cowl for Granny as a Christmas gift.  I was so pleased with the choice of wool I used that I wanted to make another for my mum as a Christmas gift.  I decided on a pretty blue wool and a lime green chunky accent button, then got crocheting.

One afternoon of work later and I had a finished Christmas gift (always a good feeling).  Here's a little detail shot of the button and stitching.

Not sure if it was her sort of 'thing' but at least it was an enjoyable ...

The Crochet Lite from Scraps of My Life


Have you seen these?

The Crochet Lite

Aren't they gorgeous?  Just looking at them makes me feel a bit like a bug drawn to the blue light of a bug zapper...

But the even better part?  My friend Ingrid bought me three for a Christmas gift!

Now that's my kind of light saber!

They are pretty awesome, I must say.  I've been crocheting with them the last two months now and I love them.  The LED light extends along the whole length of the clear plastic hook and intensifies at the hooked end.  They are fabulous ...

My First Amigurumi from Scraps of My Life

Hi, there, welcome back!

If you follow my blog at all, you may vaguely recall that back in September 2014 I learned to crochet.  From those first simple crocheted squares, I made several mug cosies, cowls (mine and Granny's) and some simple dish clothes for stocking stuffers.  I also had a go at crocheting a wine bottle tote but found it a bit too challenging at the time so decided to revisit that pattern at a later date once I'd had a little more experience under my belt.

However, if you want to do any of the really ...

Pink Knitted Pouches from France Nadeau

Two little pouches made of pink baby yarn. Soft yarn that glides smoothly on the needles. Each pouch is basically one rectangle that is folded in two. I used cross-stitch patterns to make the hearts and rosebuds. After having joined the … Continue reading

WIP Wednesday from Seaside Stitches

 Oh, my goodness. I finished a boat load of stuff this past week. I blame the snow! 

This morning, I finished the binding on The Cool Side of the Rainbow.

Yesterday, I sewed the button on my Marine Mom tote.

Monday, I quilted and bound the Selvage Log Cabin.

I needed a break, so I crocheted this adorable blue elephant on Sunday night.

 On Saturday, I made myself a tray table ironing board.

I finished the Friendship Star on Thursday night. I've been enjoying hand stitching bindings at night while I watch TV.

I also finished a secret little ...

How to Read a Crochet Grid from Patchwork Posse

how to use a crochet grid

If you are just beginning crochet– the charts and patterns can be a bit tricky and overwhelming.  I really love using crochet patterns that show it in a diagram or crochet grid style.  They are easy to read once you understand a few of the terms. I find that I might have to read and […]

Just in case you were wondering from Monkey's on the Porch

what I was up to these days….

I’ve been working very hard to finish up some projects that I can do with the two small ones around. So for now that means crochet.  That’s okay though because I have also squeezed in some cutting time while the smallest one naps.  Which means that I have one of the wedding quilts completely cut out and ready to go. Who knows, maybe I’ll be able to even get a block or two done before retreat.  After all, anything could happen right?  Really the best news on that front is ...
