Black and White Rose Centerpiece

Hi friends! I’m so ready for sun. Green grass. Stuffing my heavy wool coat into the closet and forgetting about it. Fresh air blowing through the house. Unfortunately, that’s going to be delayed for a bit in my part of the world. So I’m consoling myself by pulling out photos of brightly colored completed projects.… Continue reading Black and White Rose Centerpiece

A Study in Contrasts

My most recent projects are on opposite ends of my fiber-crafting ability spectrum. He’s a little bit bulky-weight and knit, she’s a little bit cotton thread and crocheted. I ran out of thread while in the middle of one project, and had to wait until my order for more arrived. (Booooo. Hisssss.) In the midst… Continue reading A Study in Contrasts

Danish Heart Garland

After seeing this Danish heart pin on Pinterest, I was reminded that I haven’t yet posted about my own Danish heart projects! I have made many of these adorable interwoven hearts from the free pattern on alipyper.com. My most ambitious version of the project is a garland that I hang in the doorway for Valentine’s… Continue reading Danish Heart Garland

OttLite Flex and Store

PSA: I just scored a new OttLite from Michaels for $24! I had been eyeing these awesome lamps for a while, and this deal was too good to resist. The Flex and Store lamp was originally priced at about $80 – but it’s worth noting that it can be had for much cheaper elsewhere. (This… Continue reading OttLite Flex and Store

Sunburst Pineapple Doily

The second part of my “mini” and “mega” doily challenge was to use the Sunburst Pineapple Doily pattern for its original thread crochet purpose. For this one, I used Aunt Lydia’s (Size 10) in River Blue. You’ll notice that I took some liberties with the pattern, so it looks a bit different than the doily… Continue reading Sunburst Pineapple Doily

Doily Blanket

I challenged myself to a task for the contest last year: make two versions of a doily in different sizes. The “mini” version was to be made of thread, and the “mega” version was to be made from yarn. Here’s the final result of the larger version: a doily blanket. The pattern is the Sunburst… Continue reading Doily Blanket

Snowdrop Treetop Angel

This past weekend, I got it into my head that I wanted to make a tree topper angel. (Nothing like waiting until the last minute!) We have one on our tree that I purchased on Etsy before I got into thread crochet myself. It’s nice, but I thought it would be much more meaningful to… Continue reading Snowdrop Treetop Angel

Cobweb Scarf

I don’t know about you, but I just can’t stop creating scarves. For someone who likes to try different different types of patterns, stitches, and yarns, there’s no better project. Plus, they’re awesome gifts. And to keep. A girl just can’t have too many. I made this one almost a year ago. (Wow, has it… Continue reading Cobweb Scarf
