• Stacked Pumpkins…. new pattern

    IT’S SPOOKY SEASON! I can not believe it’s already my birthday. That means school is starting soon (next week for us) and shortly after that Fall comes. And you know that Fall brings all sorts of good things. Pumpkin lattes, corn mazes, hay bales, sweaters, and knee high boots. I can’t wait. It’s been so hot here lately that I…

  • Christmas in July.. Week 4

    I am so sad that today is the last Friday in July. It’s also the last week in my Christmas in July campaign. We have been so busy with buying our house and my daughter turning 18 that I haven’t even had time to enjoy hardly any of the Christmas movies that were on the Hallmark channel. But, that’s ok…

  • Christmas in July… Week 3

    Miss Priss Plant Hanger You’re going to think this post has nothing to do with Christmas but I promise it does. This week’s project is for the plant lovers. The Miss Priss Plant Hanger is designed and named in honor of my niece, Priscilla. She’s a huge plant geek just like I am. This hanger is made to fit the…

  • Christmas in July

    You either love it or hate it…. personally, I LOVE IT!! Hallmark Movies & Mysteries has already begun their holiday movies and don’t get me wrong, I love them, but the real deal starts TODAY on the Hallmark Channel. Those are the good ones since nothing bag happens in them. No sad stories. There’s always a snowball fight and then…

  • The Best of Summer Wearables round up.

    Summer is here and so is the hot weather. Most crocheters put their hook down during the summer because it’s just too hot to crochet. And I agree 100% with doing that. I could not crochet a blanket in the summer with the heavy weight of it sitting on my lap day after day. Thankfully, we don’t have to put…

  • Lakeside Cover Up…. free pattern

    It’s official… summer is here to stay. It was in the 80s today and I can already tell I’m going to die this summer. It’s time to hit the lake for afternoons of swimming, snacking and lounging in the shade. I have teamed up with Michelle Ferguson over at Two Brothers Blankets and am her guest blogger for the month…

  • A bit of warmth (and a beaded bottle carrier)

    Wow, has it been a crazy month. I’ve got one kid who’s going through the college admission process and one who is just wrapping up homeschool co-op and the school year. I wanted to get this pattern out to you on Earth Day but that just wasn’t going to happen. I’m only four days late on it but that’s OK.…

  • Knitting Machines are all the rage right now

    If you’re a yarn crafter, you know that these circular knitting machines are very popular right now. I believe it all started when Kaytedid86 on Tik Tok shared her Tik Tok beanie. Everyone wanted one and those things almost doubled in price over a matter of two weeks. They went from like $60 up to over $100. If you were…

  • Christmas is coming…

    Does anyone else get this overwhelming feeling when you realize that Christmas is only 5 days away? I was definitely feeling the strain for about four weeks. I usually have my ducks in a row and everything done by Halloween but I didn’t even start my shopping until the second week of Nov. I just finished up buying presents on…
