I’M BACK! And I am so excited to share with you this necklace using last week’s crochet flower pattern. This project merged my two current crafting loves right now, crochet and jewelry making. Don’t let it fool you, it really isn’t that difficult to make (I think I may be getting the hang of those jump rings…finally). I LOVE how it turned out, and I hope you do too!
I have been finding all kinds of ideas of things to crochet, and I am excited to share them with you! My next little goodie involves these cute little flowers, and just in case you didn’t have a Grandma Fluffy that taught you to crochet like I did, I thought I would teach you the simple stitches that are needed to make these flowers.
It’s raining, it’s pouring and this craft lady needed something to keep from snoring. They say it is officially Spring… But here in Portland we are in our longest season – RAIN. And it has been a wet one this year. Thankfully the rain hasn’t stopped the flowers and trees from starting to bloom, and I wanted to steal (or copy) some of that beauty for my front door. I hope you enjoy this wreath.

The colder it gets, the more we crochet for ourselves and our loved ones. Sometimes my hands get stiff and tired from holding my hooks, especially the smaller sizes. What better way to add some thickness and comfort by bulking up your handles with some colorful polymer clay? Make a set for yourself or a loved one.
We are quickly closing in on Fall and one of my favorite things about the changing weather is the chance to start knitting some cold weather accessories. There are so many beautiful things to make, I’ve already got a list of things ready to go now that it won’t be too hot to have some wool in my hands. Here are some more things I’m adding to my list:
This is a pattern of my own creation, and I think it’s a really fun and quick knit. I’ve made these a couple of times with different cable variations and even a couple of mittens. They’re really great if you’re new to cables and make a wonderful gift.

This little charm bag is so versatile. Sometimes I call it a fairy bag and fill it with pretty stones. Other times I fill it with sweets. Change up the colors and charm to personalize this gift for a multitude of occasions. The crochet chain handles tighten up the bag to keep any hidden gems safely inside.
