1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Caron Pantone star stitch beanie on: Today at 04:13:55 AM
I dont even wear hats...
BUT I love the new Caron Pantone yarn so I signed up for a class at Michaels because they were having a class on it. The instructor had no clue how to crochet and I was the only student. I had fun regardless. The colors on the Pantone line are gorgeous but these skeins (hanks?)  Have such small amounts of yarn it was disappointing. I worked each color to the very end of it and added my own white to finish it off. I still love the hat

There's a million trillion things I need to be doing. Lil Frida was just begging to be made
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Of "Mouse" and Men bookmark on: August 27, 2018 05:41:18 PM
You can never have too many bookmarks, especially when they are literary relevant
Found the pattern here:


4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Graphgan on: August 19, 2018 02:03:55 PM
I made this pattern on an excel spreadsheet for my 1 year old nephew, we share a birthday so he's a pretty special little dude.
It was 4 individual panels crocheted in mini corner to corner, sewed together at the end.

Cooper had to get in on the action:





The happy recipient:

I've solidified my title of Best Auntie Ever!

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Dog-Proof Yarn Organization/Yarn Bobbins on: July 10, 2018 06:23:28 AM
My darling-sweet-never causes trouble Cooper (full name Cooper James Doodle) has picked up a very bad habit of grabbing mommy's yarn and running like a banshee through the house
Not this sweet face!

So I have seen some things on Pinterest where people use clothes pin bobbins and a broom stick to organize their yarn
Since my broom stick is my main mode of transportation I had to think of another solution
Using the same bobbin winding idea I clipped them onto the basket where I store my yarn, problem solved!
I bought these Jumbo Clothespins at the Dollar Tree, a 6-pack was just $1! And they hold a surprisingly large amount of yarn

So I got to winding

Then I clipped them onto my basket (where my yarn already) was in the order I was using them, hopefully this cuts down on Coopie running rampant through the house and also on my mess of tangles that inevitably follows me

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Barack O'Llama! on: June 25, 2018 05:20:02 PM
Red heart published this adorable pattern!  FOR FREE!
The size took me back a little bit it turned out much bigger than I anticipated (not a complaint just a general observation)
I give to you Barack O'Llama!
Here he is in his glory!

Gotta show off his angles!

Naked!!! (but he's not embarrassed)
8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Bob Marley Guitar on: June 07, 2018 11:20:53 AM
I design/make props for work.  Mostly generic things for catering events, boxes, walls, tables, risers, hi-los, etc... But this is my favorite piece so far.  We're re-vamping a reggae venue and had a guitar laying around.  Who better than Bob Marley to be the face?
Using my silhouette cameo I found an image that I liked and got to work!
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Dimensions Learn-A-Craft Weekend Embroidery Project on: May 28, 2018 02:55:12 PM
I have dabbled in embroidery before but I lack the fine tuned skills.  I found these kits at JoAnn's and thought they would be perfect for jumping back into the embroidery game!
They were complete kits with felt that had pre-drilled (?) holes, applique pieces, and embroidery thread.  It was a great weekend project!
Sorry if this pic is blurry

Llama (my fave!)



Cactus (this one is so cute in person):

Flamingo (my favorite bird):

Fox (my least fave to stitch, the holes didn't line up as good as I thought they should've)"
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Zippered watermelon pouch on: May 13, 2018 06:06:36 AM
This has been in my Pinterest queue for some time now and yesterday I found teeny tiny skeins of the perfect color yarn at hobby lobby for 32 cents each!
The zipper was the most expensive part!
