A crib quilt for each day of the week from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

puppy applique crib quilt

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 ...

A Crochet Scarf from Wedding Dress Blue

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 ...

Walking into a BRAND NEW-to me quilt shop
always feels like HOME.

Somehow my son managed to find a college,

Crochet along with my friend from Made To Treasure

If we do it along with a friend, who keeps you motivated…that is the most lovely time to work along..

Myself and Ninu were planning for a CAL since we both got the Pineapple lace book…

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 ...

Pot Holders from Monas Creativity


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!
I used cotton yarn 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 ...

Purple Poncho Link Up from Blended Fabric Quilts | Good Earth Quilting | Organic Quilting Cotton

Yes, I'm slowly recovering from a nasty bout of carpel tunnel syndrome and sleeping overnight with wrist braces has brought my hands back to life. But what I'm doing is slowly working on the hand stitching of my newest Winter Block. More on that in an upcoming post.


But I've been able to normalize my hands back into stitching abilities with switching to crochet. 



I'm linking up with Rhondda over at Oombawkadesigncrochet!





Hoping your craft day is filled with lots of fun projects shared with others!

A long time between posts - Crochet Doily Rug Finish from Seraphym

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 ...

Learning How to Crochet from Erica's Craft & Sewing Center

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 ...

And my new research project is…. from Monkey's on the Porch

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 ...

Do the Wave - Cutting Improvisational Curves for a Denim Jeans Quilt from Gefilte Quilt

So fun! So easy! And dare I admit it - so au courant! Freehand rotary cutting curves, then stitching pieces together without pins, have been trending for several years in the quilt world, widely popularized by Ricky Tims, Debbie Bowles, and the improvisational and modern quilt movements. 

[Update, 2/22/14: I learned from quilter Alison Schwabe that the technique goes a long way back, to Canadian quilter Marilyn Stoller, who developed it in the early 1980's, and taught it to legendary quilter Nancy Crow, from whence it spread. Marilyn's description of the history is here; See Alison's ...

Retreat Time from The Craft Divas

Hey Everyone,

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 ...
