The item for Today is below.
Item: You are hunting for "a Sign for May".
Clue: You will find it in the Wearables patterns!
I am now using images that are in the free Paper Bead Generator for the daily Scavenger Hunt Items.
The daily scavenger hunt item can only be found for one day.
I no longer keep them available to find for the whole month.
The instant prize could be either a discount or a download of something that is free for today only.
This pattern is available for paid members or for $1.99.
This doily is fairly fast and easy to make and could be made in a couple of evenings. It is a good one to make for beginners because it uses just basic stitches.
Every day, from now on, I will post either a members only pattern or a free pattern. It will say whether it is free or not. Once a week, I will offer 1 paid members pattern per week. It will be on Sunday Each Week. This is so I can feature current holiday related patterns, whether they are free or not.
Desk Top Caddy is Back!
I have added a new section to the site! Other Projects! So far there is only two projects in there. The projects that will be in this section will be unrelated to crochet and paper bead making. I plan to add more random projects as time goes by. Most of them, in the future will be for paid members but the projects that existed before on Paper Bead Crafts and the JPF Crochet Club, that were not related, will be free if they were free to begin with.

This pot holder pattern is a perfect example of what this stitch looks like. There are a few more patterns on the site that use this stitch and you can find out which ones they are by clicking on the link above.

My Plans for 2020Points accounts will be coming back. Not sure when, when I figure out how it will work, I will let you know. Right now, all I know is there will be 2 or 3 levels of points account members and the levels will be based on how many points are earned. Redeeming points will not be included, at first, just earning points for level access. It may take weeks to figure it all out. Anyone who paid or pays for membership will automatically be at the Gold level and have access to everything without having to earn points over time. I will post details later and as I figure out how it's all going to work. It will be way different from the old system. It will not work the same. Everyone will start at the lowest level except those who have ever paid for lifetime membership or pays for membership in the future. Future members who pay the 12 monthly payments plan, will lose their Gold status if they cancel their monthly payments before the monthly payments end on their own after 12 payments.
Another use for scraps of yarn, the type that are long enough to make actual things with, is to give it to your kid who is just learning how to crochet. That way, your child will have a practice ball of yarn to use and he/she can frog it as many times as needed without ruining a new skein of yarn.
Keeping Track of What This Ball of Thread is
When I open a new ball of thread, I put the wrapper inside the ball. That way, if I need to buy more of the same stuff, I will know what it is. Also since I design patterns, it helps to have that wrapper so I know what to write in for materials.
