It is so nice to finally have spring weather! I celebrated by making 2 pretty doilies!
Doesn't everyone? ; )
This is the same pattern I used for the blue and gold doilies
I made for my son's graduation; and the rose doily I
made for my classroom. 
I love this pattern.
There are also several pretty versions on pinterest.

Thanks for checking in and have a great day!

A new doily!

Hello! I made this pretty doily this weekend!
So thankful for the chance to do a little crocheting. ; )
I love the solid look of this doily.
I think it would make a great carpet, too, if it was made
with a bigger hook and thick cotton yarn.
You can find the pattern here.
Thanks for checking in and happy crocheting!!

Spring Snowstorm Card

Well, here it is April 15...and we have 13 inches of new snow on the ground! While I'd much rather have warm spring sunshine and spend time outdoors, I made the best of our snowy weekend by doing some crafting. I was able to crochet, make an iron-on t-shirt, and do some stamping.
I made a birthday card using Vintage Flowers by Altenew. Wow! I really like this set! I just bought it a week ago, so haven't used it much, but I'm in love with these flowers. It took a little practice to get the images lined up correctly, but if you have any stamping experience, you can do it. ; )
I hope you're having a creative weekend, too!
Thanks for checking in!

2017...a year of crochet!

I recently read Coco Rose Diaries  year end post...summing up her creative endeavors for last year.  (I lover her blog, by the way...and the way she writes and shares her story...) That got me to many crochet projects did I complete in 2017? I went through my photos for the year... It was fun to look back at all of them!

From top to bottom, January to December, 2017...a few doilies, 2 blankets, the snowflakes I give to my students, the wrist warmers I gave as gifts, a scarf or two, and the red hats I donated to the Little Hats, Big Hearts project...I ended up making eight red hats to donate. The hats and the wrist warmers were probably 2 of my top faves for the year!! Thanks for checking's fun to take a look I already have finished a couple of things in 2018! Happy crocheting!

Little white hat

Happy  Tuesday! I had a little crochet time in the car this weekend, and made this baby hat:
I used this pattern and added a little pom pom at the top....
Have a creative day!
