There are so many wonderful ways to display crochet but one of my favorites is “doubling” up! All rules are meant to be broken right? In my book, if you like the way it looks, then that’s all that counts!
Stitch up a frilly ruffled thread candle ring to accent your candles or table lamps to perfection! The ring works up quickly and easily. Frills, thrills and more!
Here we go – Battle of the Stitches, Round 13! I love spring for its new beginnings, in life and in general! I tend to think of flower blossoms, the scent of jasmine as it permeates the air, birds singing and calling to one another, pastels and celebrations. Celebrations like Battle of the Stitches, Round 13 Blog Hop Event!
This week focuses on my pick for the Top Five Friday Finds for Spring Themed Grannys. I love the afghan reincarnation idea for creating unique one-of-a-kind pillows from Red Heart to the uniquely styled hot air balloon – come see for yourself!
Mandalas are so beautiful with their color changes, stitching over, around and behind previous rounds to create a kaleidoscope effect that’s not only beautiful but keeps the eye moving outward from the center to the perimeter of the project. But I also like projects that are functional too.
Using mason jars to organize your home is a great way to keep buttons, cotton balls, to even dry beans in the pantry. Decorate and embellish those jars with crocheted covers. In this version, dainty clusters provide texture and make for a lovely pattern repeat. Adorn with a crochet rose and leaves, or as desired!
Our pretty thread candle holder cover stitches up quickly and is so pretty for Valentines, Mother’s Day, and Easter. Set a romantic table with a couple of these lovely candle holders!
This is the second pattern in our Autumn Harvest Pumpkin Tea Set; the plant pot cover which is worked in post stitches and adorned with leaves. It’s a great way to dress up your houseplants for fall or Thanksgiving. Or if you have Thanksgiving away from home, why not gift the hostess with mum and this pretty cover!
I love candles so when an opening became available in the Spa Basket Crochet Along, I couldn’t help myself. The idea was to achieve a peaceful, calm and tranquil look for a relaxing spa moment in the comfort of your own home!
This fun and decorative crochet tea set is perfect for fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving! A cute teapot cozy looks like a real pumpkin! And the plant pot cover is a great way to add to your seasonal/holiday table and don’t forget the napkin rings! Over the course of the next three weeks, a pattern per week in the set will be published. For now, here’s your supply list!
The wonderful “encyclopedia” of Indispensable Stitch Collection for Crocheters has become an all time favorite of mine! So many wonderful stitch combinations to choose from and one can’t help themselves but to design something using one of their favorite stitches. With a need for a new contemporary table runner, here’s what I did!
I just think mandalas are fun to stitch. No wonder they’re therapeutic; the gradual change of color and texture calm the nerves and relieve stress. Stitch up a sun catcher or…
Mandalas remain popular with their beautiful vibrant colors, texture and charm. While I chose pink, blue, and Aran for mine (the colors I had on hand), this mandala would be so pretty worked in dramatic colors of black, gray and white, or burgundy, gray and white, or…
I’m so excited that my turn has come up in the Holiday Stashdown CAL 2016! What better way to reduce your stash of yarn, create something beautiful and functional, and yet, lovingly stitch up a gift for someone special on your gift list. For this special CAL, I designed the Ripply Wave Pillow Cover!
June brings a lot of special occasions and events including Father’s Day, graduations, and summer vacations. But June is also special for June brides. I’ve collected various free patterns from the blog that would be ideally suited for a June wedding – or really, any wedding whether it’s in December or June!
We’re finishing up the pillow this week and I hope you’ve enjoyed this short crochet-a-long. The pillow cover really doesn’t take long to make and is easy to change size, colors, or even embellish further as the instructions provide for this part. I would love to showcase your work, so please send pictures!
