What's New: Pretty Maids All in a Row

I've been working on a lot of fun projects over the past few months, but, as often happens with motherhood, my kiddos have taken a big chunk of my creating time! And I wouldn't have it any other way!

What's New: Pretty Crochet Collars

The weather is getting pretty chilly around these parts and these pretty little callars are the perfect way to keep your neck warm, while still looking cute! I've been making lots of pretty crochet collars in an array of fantastic trendy colors!

Crochet, Cancer, and the Cause!

As you may know, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Being in the business of making hats, I've have the pleasure to make several over the years for beautiful women who have been diagnosed with breast (or other) cancers. The thing that I've always taken away from these opportunities, is how amazing and strong these women are. So brave and courageous.

Things to Make: DIY Printable Family Rules

I've been working on some fun projects for our new house, and thought I'd share my latest with you!

I wanted to have a fun way to display our family rules in a prominent place in our home, and to add some color and a little more of our family's relaxed personality to our new space, so I created some font art - featuring our families rules! (And also one for our kids birthdays!)

So here it is:

Pinterest Inspiration: Rainbow Waves Afghan

Good morning!

I thought I'd share another Pinterest Inspiration project with you today!

A while ago I came across this lovely pin:

I love the serenity and color of this graphic...so pretty!

(ETA: Thank you to Jeannette​ for directing me to the proper link for the image!  You can find the original source HERE.)

I knew immediately that I wanted to try making an afghan that had the same look to it.

And here's my take:

Pinterest Inspiration: End of Winter Cowl

A couple of weeks ago I saw this pretty cowl image floating around Pinterest.

When I looked it up I found out that ChiWei, the designer - from One Dog Woof, was hosting a Crochet-Along, with the End of Winter pattern as the project!  

I decided to join in...and I'm so glad I did!

I loved CheWei's beautiful bright pink...but I wanted to use some yarn that I'd had in my stash for a long time, instead.  I had this pretty, super-soft Bernat Premium taupe colored yarn...I'd gotten it on clearance, so I'm not sure they even make this anymore!

What's New: Crochet Bunnies (and a pig and duck, too!)

Thought I'd share a couple of pics of my latest creations!

Pinterest Inspiration: Pastel Granny Afghan

Hi!

I thought I'd start sharing some of my Pinterest inspired projects with all of you!  

I LOVE this gorgeous granny square afghan, made by the incredibly talented Petite Pimprenelle.  Aren't the colors so pretty and fresh?  'Tart'...just like she describes! Drool!  So using this pin as my inspiration I decided to make my own version!
