I just can’t believe how fast the time is going. It really needs to slow down. I can remember being a kid and it seemed to take F-O-R-E-V-E-R for Christmas to get here and now you blink and it’s over… *Sigh*
One thing I do enjoy is working on holiday crochet projects! It makes the holidays last just a tiny bit longer as I work away on my decorations and gifts.
And this week, I’ve created the Christmas edition of the crochet wreaths I’ve been designing for all of you!
The holidays are just around the corner and this week, I’ve created a great little pattern for Upcycled Poinsettias!
Can you believe it?
And I’m here today to give you a turkey that you can stuff BEFORE the big day!
A lady on Facebook requested that I make a set of pillows that match the Old Glory American Flag Afghan that I made earlier in the summer. And since she was such a sweet lady, I couldn’t let her down! 😉
Christmas seems to be creeping up fast. Is it just me?
And there’s nothing wrong with getting a jump start on some holiday decorations or gifts for those special people in your life.
Did I scare you?
So somehow I managed to miss decorating my house for autumn this year, which is highly unusual for me since this is my favorite season. I just chocked it up to being super busy with work.
Happy harvest everyone!
I love pumpkin everything!!!
Autumn is my most favorite season and I just adore pumpkins—carving them, eating foods made from them and, best of all, decorating with them!
I’m so excited to give you the patterns for the hats and booties that match the Rag Quilt Style Baby Blanket! There are three size options available for both the hats and the booties. Perfect for a growing baby!
These patterns are easy and work up seriously fast, which is great if you’re looking for something to give as a gift short notice or you just don’t have a ton of time to spend crocheting.
I’ve also included two trim options. If you feel like the ruffle is too feminine, simple single crochets can replace it. I showed the results in the grey version.
Well, we’re on the downward slope of summer now, heading swiftly into autumn. It will be here before we know it, but I can’t say that I’m that upset about it. Even though I love summer with all its sunshine and warmth, my heart belongs to autumn.
It’s one of those seasons that, at least in Pennsylvania, seems to start out so beautiful with the changing leaves and chill in the air…and a week later…all the leaves are gone, the trees are brown and bare and it’s freezing.
Does anyone remember rag quilts? Does anyone still make them?
I remember some of the quilts that my grandmother used to have and I sincerely wish that I could’ve gotten my hands on a couple. I have no idea if she still has them or if they’re long gone.
So this week’s crochet pattern was inspired by the beloved rag quilt!
