We’re moving on to Part 2 of our Thomas the Turkey Coaster Holder – the coasters! These coasters are super quick and easy to stitch – so while the entire project is rated “intermediate,” the coasters are rated beginner to easy. Hope you’re all enjoying the CAL so far! This CAL will be three(3) weeks long.
When it comes to crochet, there’s no better teacher then learning one on one. So obviously the next best thing is videos. And these days you can watch videos for learning stitches to working an entire project.
Recently these pattern packs were available on Annie’s Attic. Because the holiday season is over – these patterns have been discontinued. And now they’re available for download exclusively to my blog visitors. These packs are no longer available on the Annie’s Attic site nor are they available on my own site as a package deal! Great prices and they’ll only be available for a limited time!
Our fun crochet Easter basket is worked in yarn and fits a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish. Front post sts create texture and design while the basket is accented with two white bunnies and lots of crochet flowers. Fill with grass and Easter candy for your holiday celebration!
Four pretty crochet eggs can be nestled inside our dainty crochet ruffled Easter basket worked up in a fun pattern repeat. The basket is then edged with a lovely chain ruffle and accented with large ribbon bows. Instructions include four different eggs and basket. Decorate your home or office for Easter!
Our pretty crochet basket is perfect for Easter, spring, or Mother’s Day. Worked in pineapples it’s edged with a frilly chain ruffle with a matching saucer and trimmed in floral and ribbon.
Our beautiful thread crochet table topper boasts plenty of pretty pink roses, pineapples, and butterflies. What could be better! Twelve dainty pineapples give way to 24 delicate roses to another set of pineapples and then; elegant butterflies.
An easy spider web stitch lends itself beautifully for our “tartan” style skirt with matching broad brimmed hat. Embellished with ribbon bows, our crochet crinoline is ready for St. Paddy’s! Once I got on a crinoline roll of designing them, customers couldn’t seem to get enough. From holiday to birthdays, special occasions and more, crinoline are just plain fun. Use them on quilt squares or on pillows, or frame them!
Our fun crochet pillow combines two needle arts – crochet and cross stitching, and covers two holidays – Valentines and St. Patrick’s! One side has two hearts while the other boasts a lively shamrock. Each side is edged with a pretty lace ruffle. Work one side or the other, or both! For awhile working cross-stitch on crochet was the “rage” and it was then I designed this decorative pillow for both holidays. And because I love decorating for holidays, this pillow serves up a dual purpose!
Adorned with a double ring of pink hearts and trimmed with a pretty open shell border, this crochet Valentine doily is perfect for Valentines! Works up quickly for gift-giving. I love the holidays and I enjoy decorating for each. One of the easiest ways to decorate for any holiday is with doilies and runners. These are projects to keep your hands busy, your heart content, and something to showcase for years to come.

Just a date but it sparks so many memories. I remember it as if it were yesterday. I know many say that about the anniversary of 9-11, but for me personally it really does stand out in memory with clarity.
Yup, our current newsletter has been published and I’ve been slack in getting it up on the blog. Because there is so much to our newsletter, I present – The Crochet Memories Newsletter online!
I was invited to join in the “World Wide Artist Blog Hop” by Kim of Wips ‘N Chains. I immediately was intrigued and jumped at the chance. You find that Kim makes the most beautiful clothing designs around. I think many have dubbed her the Queen of Tunisian. In one word, I’m inspired and in awe of her work.
