Hi! This duck has cheered up a lot of people in my life, and I wanted everyone to be able to do this for loved ones without the cost of a pattern, so this duck pattern is now FREE to download: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/quacky-lotion-topper

13  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Beehive Baskets From Napkin Rings on: June 12, 2013 11:07:36 AM
Last year at a thrift shop, I came across this wrought iron thingy that didn't have a tray. I bought it 'cause I thought it had a cool shape (and it was in the last-chance clearance pile). I finally got around to doing something with it when my cousin gave me some napkin rings that have bees on them. I like to crochet around everything, so I crocheted some "beehives" around the rings, and dangled them from the arch of the wrought iron. The yarn, BTW, also came from the thrift shop. I laid down some remnant tiles (supported by some popsicle sticks) from our kitchen reno. It looked okay, but to add life to it, I stuck some succulent cuttings in the little beehives. To complete the family of rescued items, I added some seed pods from one of my plants.

Here's another one. After a couple of years of tending to my own succulent garden, I can finally make more arrangements. Most of the plants seen in this project are from the 2nd generation of my garden.

Way to upcycle! Those are so adorable, and they look nothing like what they were originally.
16  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Succulents in Jute Purses on: May 06, 2013 10:24:02 AM
I crocheted a few "purses" with some jute gardening twine I got from the hardware shop and stuffed them with some succulents. Jute acts very much like coir or coconut fiber: it's biodegradable and provides good drainage. Sometimes, I don't even fill the crocheted jute containers with soil, and the succulents will root into the jute (hey, that rhymes).

I lined the inside of this one with newspaper before filling it with potting soil. When it comes to watering, I take it outside and spray the entire arrangement--purse and all--with water.

These little ones weren't lined with paper. I intend to leave them outside just as they are.

What a great idea using cardboard tubes! I like to plant something every season. Over the winter I planted snow peas and we're harvesting them now.  Snow peas can survive down to 20F/-6C temperatures. Right now I have tomatoes, cucumbers and corn in our raised beds.

Here's our yummy snow peas:
18  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / tunisian knit stitch beanie on: March 06, 2013 09:50:28 AM
I can't knit but I like the stretch and texture of knitting. I recently picked up the book The New Crochet Dictionary. It's not "new." The book was published in the 80s, but it has loads of techniques, like tunisian crochet. I found out about the tunisian knit stitch (tks) from the book, but because the photos are somewhat blurry and in black and white, I had to supplement with web tutorials.

I started this hat with the tunisian simple stitch and then tks, but I didn't work in the round (that's the next technique I will have to learn).

Using a regular hook, I joined the swatch with slip stitches, and then closed the top with single crochet (sc) and  sc decrease.

To finish, the brim is one round of sc.

Wow, alwaysinmyroom! I was proud of myself for having made 4 hats, but you've blown me out of the water! I don't know if I'll get 19 hats made in a year! Nicely done!

Ditto that!  Wait for me Cheesy
