Work Update

Today I was able to upload over 20 crochet patterns! That leaves just 46 more to upload out of 950!  I also added all of the 3/8" Machine Paper Bead cutting templates. Tomorrow I plan to upload  more crochet patterns, and the 1/2" printable cutting templates.  I also plan to start adding brand new never before seen patterns and projects in 2020 or as soon as I am done uploading the old content back to this site! Yes, I am going to be adding new crochet patterns as well as paper bead and quilting or sewing projects in 2020!

Featured Pattern

This square is a variation of the square designed for the Ladies of the Square Circle. I was about half way through making the squares when I decided I wanted a change but not a drastic one. So I changed the way the colors were put together and changed some of the rows and this square is the result.

Variation of Julie's Lady Square

When you get to the current featured Pattern, if the pattern is already free, you will be able to see the whole pattern and download the PDF file. If the pattern is for paid members, you will no longer be able to see the whole pattern or download the PDF file without either purchasing it or by becoming a member. The featured pattern is now just a way for me to remind you about patterns available on the site.

Tuesday's Tips

  • Egg Carton Ornament Storage
    If you have a miniature tree with a bunch of mini ornaments, a great place to organize them is in an egg carton. You can use as many as you need and they stack nicely inside a bigger box! Best of all they are free!
  • A Use for Old Wall Paper Scraps!
    If you have extra wall paper from a recent redecoration, you can use the scraps to cover wooden craft boxes and use them as an accent in the same room as the wall paper is in. You can also use the wall paper as gift wrap. You can cover an oatmeal box that comes with a plastic lid with wall paper, cut a hole in the top an you will have a yarn caddy to keep your skein of yarn clean while working on a project.
  • Keeping Projects Clean
    Keep your WIP in a plastic zipper bag when you take it with you to work on when you are away from home whether you are in a waiting room or at the beach. hehe This keeps it clean and all together. joomla
  • Meat Tray Pallettes
    Foam meat trays can be used a palettes for paint or glue. When done with your project, just throw away or if you have extra paint on it, cover with plastic wrap so that you will not waste any of it. Then when all of the paint is used up, then you can toss it.
  • Bread Tab Marker Labels
    If you use bread tabs to mark your crochet or knit work, you can use a small label on it to mark your place. Then if you need to reuse it, you can just put another label over it.
