I have been crocheting blankets to donate for a charity who provides them to orphans in Guatemala. I already a donation of a stack and am now working on another pile. Check out this beauty – it’s bright I know but don’t you think it will brighten someone’s day?

Here is the book photo … And here is my version … My little guy has been so secretive about his knight costume. He had it on and let me snap this photo. I made it big because this way he will be able to both grow into it and wear it over a coat… Read More
I gave a little tease about the Halloween costumes I was crocheting for the kids. I am almost complete and must admit they DO look amazing. Here are some photos of what I am making the kids.

I’m so pleased with how it turned out, especially after the mishaps of the original… Read More
This dress is got to be the most frustrating. Not the pattern itself (or maybe it is the one with the error?) but the inevitable mistake on my part. This is the dress I’m attempting to make … It’s a Vanna White pattern. There is also a matching sweater that I hope to make … one… Read More
