Behind the Hooks & Chains!

Behind the Hooks Chains Festive Pinecone Pineapple Runner: A fun and wonderful idea given to me by a dear friend and customer. She purchased the Pineapple Snowflake Runner pattern and after making it, thought a pinecone runner better for year-round enjoyment. And hey, what better type of runner to have for a log cabin or those living in the mountains or by a beautiful lake! So I set to work, honestly the hardest part about this runner was finding a means to "pop" the pinecones depicted in the filet. Let me just say, I almost lost heart and found myself procrastinating in finishing this piece. And then like most designers, I'm always thinking about a piece to make it better regardless if I'm actually holding a hook in my hands or not!

Spiraled Elegance Bowl: This bowl design is definitely not new. I designed it quite sometime back for some reason (that I can't recall), it never was published. I came across this little jewel in looking for another pattern. It was designed to match our Spiraled Elegance collection - hat and doily!

BJ'S Country Cottage

Summer Fun Wreath

My friend Betty, crochet designer and owner of BJ'S Country Cottage, has wonderful designs you'll just have to check out in her Etsy shop! You'll also find many of her designs on Crochet Memories - to check those out, look under "Shop by Designer" and then under her name; "Betty Stevens." She designed this cute Summer Fun Wreath pattern and sent me the adorable story behind it. She writes:

"I gave this to my neighbor when her 3 year old granddaughter was visiting. She kept asking. "'Meme, can I wear the flip flops in your window?'"

Well I have to agree, they certainly do look like you could pull them right off the wreath and wear them! :-)

    Recipes I'm not even sure if they still have high school home economics courses these days, but when I was in high school from 68 - 71, they did. That's back in the 1900's. LOL Anyway, some of the recipes given in class I found to be tasty. And would you believe I still have many of those recipes? I thought it'd be fun to share some of the tastier ones. So here goes! Breakfast - blast from the past...
