I have decided to shorten the daily update a little bit and will make an attempt to add other featured stuff, as well as the daily crochet pattern and bead sheet, from the site every few days and perhaps thoughts for the day, little tidbits of what is taking up my time so you will know why I haven't been adding brand new stuff to the site in a while.
What am I Doing?
Today I started adding Sudoku Puzzles to the site.
I have started making Christmas gifts for my family and today I will be working on a shopping bag for someone in my family. I am crumb quilting it. I do plan to publish the pattern in the future but for now I am working on the piecing. So if you are into crumb quilting, and you are interested in making a shopping bag with crumb quilting, start piecing 2 panels that are 18" x 21", the same size as fat quarters, I will show you how to make a shopping bag with them! You will also need lining of any whole piece of fabric of the same size, two fat quarters or a half yard of cotton cut in half along the fold.
The Recent Addition section of this newsletter will be updated on an irregular basis. This gives those of you who miss a chance, to see the new posting, to get to view them, before they are changed to something new.
Since this month is October, I will be featuring all of the Halloween related patterns whether they are always free or not.
This pattern is Free on October 3rd only!
This cute little pumpkin can be made in a jiffy! Make several in an evening for a festive touch for a Halloween party.
Featured Bead Sheet
This bead sheet is Not free.
This bead sheet was made with clip art I have on my computer and the bead sheet designer. This would be great made into beads for Halloween!
Check out the new Sudoku Puzzle! I will be adding a new Sudoku puzzle to the site once per week on Sundays.
This pattern was on the 600 Pattern CD which is no longer available. You can use this filet crochet stitch chart for what ever project you want. It would be pretty made into a wall hanging and mounted on dark blue velvet!
This Week's Tip
Stringing Beads Before Stitching
If you crochet with beads, put the beads in a shallow dish to make it easier to scoop them up one or two at a time. When working with beads, most of the time you will need to put the beads onto the thread or yarn first before starting with crocheting.
