Scavenger Hunt

Today's Scavenger Hunt Item
The item for Today is below.
Item: You are hunting for "a Simple Sunflower".
Clue: You will find it in the Granny Square patterns!

I am now using images that are in either of the 2 Paper Bead Generators, or a thumbnail image of a pattern relevant to the current time period, for the daily Scavenger Hunt Items.

The daily scavenger hunt item can only be found for one day.

The instant prize is access to a Gold Members Only crochet pattern that is free for today only for everyone! The pdf file is not part of the prize.

 The Points Program Has Started!

A special code has been placed under this image, on the page that will have the scavenger hunt item on it. Sign up for a Free Points Account and you can claim 1000 points for finding today's item! you can also get free access to the page that it is on! As of August 5, 2020, I have fixed the problem of not being able to access the pattern page that the link goes to if you are not a gold member. Now anyone who finds the scavenger hunt item, member or not can access the pattern page for one day.  Not the PDF though.

Featured Pattern

This pattern is Not Free.

This pillowghan square can be easily made with several different colors or with a variegated colored yarn. It is simple and would make a great take along project. With this pattern, you could easily make a pillowghan in about 12-13 hours or 13-14 nights if you make just one square per night. Then piece them all together on the 14th night.

Center Clusters Pillowghan Square

From now on, I will featured either free or for members patterns. The members patterns will not be free but they will be available for either $1.99 or for 19,900 points for those who have a free points account. They will always be available to Gold Members without having to redeem points.

Points Program News

Points accounts are Back! 

I am still ironing out the little wrinkles in the system but it is up and running! Sign up now and join in the fun! Earn points for use in downloading Gold Members only files! I am slowly adding download buttons you can use to redeem points for patterns and templates. The buttons will be placed on a download page like it was on the old version of the site last year. It will take awhile to add all of them.

I have come up with something that Gold members can redeem their points for. The way I expect to be able to set it up is I will make a page just for Gold members that will have listings on it that you can redeem points for. The items will be things I already sell at Amazon and Etsy but they will be available through the points system. Only for Gold members. There may be shipping charges, there may be not. I will be getting that part of the Points Program set up within the next couple of months. So meanwhile, keep adding points to your points account so you can take advantage of the discounts and perhaps freebies when redeeming points!

Another Use for Dryer Sheets When making crochet, sewn or knit sachets, to put into your drawers, stuff them with used dryer sheets that have been misted with your favorite body spray or perfume. Use after shave for men's sachets.

Weighted Pin Cushions: When making pincushions, to help your it stay in place, weight it down with smooth stones or large metal washers. Put the weights on the bottom of your pincushion. That way, when removing pins from them, the pincushion should stay in place.
