Embellish your crinolines with any of these sweet accessories! They are also so cute on the fridge as magnets and they make wonderful gifts for mom too!
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!
Working with thread is my first love in crochet and stitching this dainty thread heart was pure joy. I combined a center rose with a lacy style of Bruges Lace to create just the look I hoped for. Lacy, girly, pink, flowery, and beautiful. This heart can be used to embellish linen but I’d love to hear what you’d do with yours!
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!
Valentines conjures up lacy hearts for me. And this heart is so pretty and versatile you could embellish linen or even mold the hearts to add to garlands, wreaths or chain them together for a Valentine garland all unto themselves!

A couple days ago, I shared a free crochet pattern for a beautiful thread coaster designed by Rebeckah Ferger of Rebeckah’s Treasures. This lovely coaster will not only protect your furniture from rings, but will add elegant beauty to your home décor!
Stitch up a spook-tacular bookmark for one of the little ones in your life for Halloween! Worked in filet, this cute bookmark says; “boo” and the tassel ends with a not-so-mean looking spider!
It’s been such fun designing this doily with everyone working just behind me. Not even I know exactly where I’ll be going with this project which makes it a mystery for everyone! Come join me for part 4 (the final section) – now posted!
What better way to keep the bugs out of your drinks than with a pretty crochet cover accented with beads. And the beads have just enough weight to keep the cover in place. Enjoy outdoor living with a pretty textured, beaded cover!
I felt like naming this doily “surprise by design” because what you see now is as far as I’ve gotten for part 1 of this CAL. Sometimes surprises are so much fun and who knows where this mandala doily will end (or where!)… but that’s half the fun isn’t it! Come join me while we […]
