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?
I am finding more projects that were on the site before, but have been missing for a few years, so I am adding them back to the site. I may even add old projects that were on the 600 Pattern CD that were never on the site. The CD is no longer available and never will be. Meanwhile, I am working on a new project, as I mentioned before, I am just waiting for certain supplies to arrive to get started on it. There will also be a video to go with the new project!
This pattern is Free on September 30th only!
This quick and easy coaster could easily be used as a motif in something bigger.
Featured Bead Sheet
This bead sheet is Not free.
Beads made from this bead sheet would look great combined with pearls in an off white color in a necklace or bracelet!
Quilted Pumpkin Potholder
It's been years since I took this project off the site. It's Back! - This potholder is just an example of what you can do with the pumpkin motif that is on the potholder. This project is actually to give you a motif you can use for various different craft projects. I do plan to make more, updated quilted potholders in the future.
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.
