These fun gingham stockings are perfect for Santa to stuff full of goodies! They work up quickly in Tunisian simple stitch with only 1 seam to sew. Use your favorite color combination for a bright & cheery holiday. I think I’m going to hang oversized gift tags on them instead of trying to put names on them.
Available in my Ravelry store.
A new curtain for my kitchen window. I believe I’ll add side borders to it as it seems a bit narrow for the window. I don’t want it to gather but I also want it to fit properly. I used a foreign pin from Pinterest to design the curtain. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/203858320613447260/
The 1st of 4 beautiful flowers to be made during the Hawaiian Crochet Flower CAL 2017. A lovely Hibiscus. A bit of a challenge but very fulfilling to construct. I’m really looking forward to the next design.
A new interest I have in crochet is realistic floral arrangements. I’m still learning and practicing. I’ll be taking a class April 22nd at the Yellow Rose Fiber Producers Fiesta in Seguin. I’m very much looking forward to it. I’ve also signed up for this wonderful CAL hosted by Leticia Lebron at Flawless Crochet Flowers. The CAL begins April 1st and with your paid subscription, she’s offering 2 free patterns along with 4 Hawaiian themed flowers. If this is a CAL you’d like to participate in, head over to her page. 2017 Hawaiian Flower CAL. It should be awesome!
As I sit watching a beautiful Texas sunrise, I’m reminded of all the blessings in my life. My family and friends, my health, and God’s eternal love. This will be the last Thanksgiving we’ll spend in this home we’ve known for over 16 years. There were some fabulous celebrations here. It will be missed. May your life be filled with Thanks and Giving. Enjoy and cherish the people closest to you. God Bless us all.
I haven’t had a lot of time for yarn these past couple of months. We bought a new (to us) home and I’ve been crazy busy with contractors and painting to get it ready for move in. I so wanted to be in for the holidays, but alas, the planets didn’t align properly for that to happen. We still may make it for Christmas! The house was built in 1985 and many updates have already been made with the exception of the kitchen. So it’s been completely gutted and sits waiting for new cabinets, appliances and fixtures. The cabinets should be here the first week in December. I’m so excited!!! I’ll sure miss living in the country, but this home is only a few minutes from the farm and it’s on a large 3/4 acre lot.
I’ve wanted to crochet a kitchen curtain for quite some time. Finally found a pattern repeat I liked. I found the pattern repeat on Pinterest.
