Spring Birthday Card

Hello! I have a pretty birthday card to share with you!
I'm a big fan of Miss Kate Cuttables and do not miss checking out
the daily free svg file...ever....
These cute Easter flowers were a recent freebie. = )
(Even at regular price, the file is a great buy...only .50!)
If you haven't been to the website, and you own a Cricut,
you should definitely check it out.


Aren't they adorable??
I added some lilac gingham paper...
and this is the result!


I simplified the image a little, by not cutting all of the layers, but that's
the beauty of crafting...to make it your own! I ran the flowers though
my Big Shot with the "Swiss dots" embossing folder.

Thanks for checking in and have a great day!

Red and white...

Here's my latest little addition to my red and white decor.
= )
I actually made the center quite awhile ago...
just decided to finish it in red this week.
You can find the chart here. It really is quite easy and quick...my favorite kind of project!
Happy crocheting!

Ruby Slippers Doily = )

I started this red doily the other night, while I watched The Wizard of Oz...I don't know about you, but I never get tired of that movie! Thanks to Dorothy and her ruby slippers, I got this much finished:
I had time over the weekend to finish it...I think it's lovely! It's a nice accent to the red and white I'm trying to incorporate into my living room.


Doilies  with shells are easy to make and go rather quickly...that's what I like about this pattern.
You can find the chart here.
Thanks for checking in and have a great day!

Crochet Pillow Cover


 I made a red and white gingham pillow...then added this red
crochet pillow cover.
I made nine squares using this pattern. 
I think this pillow fits right in with my red and white afghan. = )
Thanks for checking in and have a great, crochet kind of day!!

Granny Square

 I made this little granny square...."purse" I guess you could call it...
Its great for holding small things, inside my big purse...

I used cotton yarn, sewed three sides together and added a button.
 This is what it looks like from the back.
Have a great, crochet-kind of day! = )

Doily Blanket


 I've wanted to make a large, doily throw/blanket for a while...
I tried several different doily patterns before finding
this one....
I was looking for a doily that had at least 35-40 rounds to it.
The first pattern I tried had 30, which was too small (that size would make a good baby
blanket, though.)
This one is large enough to cozy up on the couch with a good book.

Thanks for checking in and have a great day!

Crochet is cheaper than therapy...

Whatever your crafting passion may be, it is said to be cheaper than therapy. I totally believe it.
Those of you with a passion for crochet know this.
We pick up the hook in times of stress, when we
want to relax, forget about work or problems of
the world....
...or just because we want to create something beautiful...
...make a corner cozy.
I'm a fan of red gingham.
I used this chart to make the red and white throw.
It was my December project.
Enjoy come crocheting today!
