The Best Part: Cool Stuff You Made

The biggest thrill that I get as a crochet designer/ author is seeing people’s projects when they take the time to make one of my patterns. I love to see what y’all come up with, it’s so inspiring! When  you add your projects to ravelry, I can see the ones made with my patterns in [...]

Projects from Crochet Adorned

I was googling Crochet Adorned this week (yes, I do that!)  and I came across some fun projects inspired by the book, so I just had to share! There are so many ways you can use it even if you don’t want to make the exacct projects within–the stitch dictionary and how-to info makes for [...]

Bring On Spring Cardigan

Just a heads up that my tutorial for making a ruffled cardigan is up on All you need is a cardigan, 1/2 yard of fabric, and basic sewing stuff. As a side note, you could also cut your fabric on the bias to eliminate sewing the fabric tube, and it also might be fun [...]

Not A Lot to Say

It has been a rough time for me and my family lately. If the blog is quiet, which I expect it to be, please continue to check back as I’m sure I’ll get into the swing of things again.  I’ve been back from TX for five days now and seem to be spinning my wheels- I have lots [...]

I got my contributor’s issue of Crochet Today in the mail today (a full week later than everyone else in blog land). Thank you mail man for continuing to shove it into the box so it gets nice and crinkly. Really, I think my mailman probably hates me because he constantly shoves things in so [...]

Sewing + Cooking

Today I decided to get down to business. I cleaned. I finished my quilt top. I put the laundry away. I saw my bag of “off to goodwill” clothes and rummaged through it. I have 4 or 5 tops– the same exact top, but different colors and stripes– that are just too short from all [...]

The Importance of Accessories

Today I took a stab at Simplicity 3835  (you might remember that I used the pattern to make this lemon dress a while ago). Everything I’ve read on the internet said it was a breeze, and I had all of the materials ready to go. It’s true– the pattern is super simple to stitch. I made a few changes, including [...]

Reunited…and it feels so good!
