I confess I have had a little bit of a crochet doily obsession as of late.  To prove my point enjoy a  few quick IPad captures:


worked this beauty from a diagram pattern. So excited I finally made the plunge!
The plan is to turn this one into a bowl.   I’ll share when it’s complete.


I almost gave up on this  because I don’t really care for patterns that require breaking off and finishing things separately. Call me crazy but I like to have the freedom to rip stitches if I’m not thrilled with how the pattern is working up……However I loved how this turned out so happy that I hung in there!    Find the free pattern  HERE


in my world these items go together 🙂


If you are one of the lucky folks who have a three-day weekend….ENJOY!

I am not one of them.






You may remember the beautiful yarn my husband gifted me a couple of weeks ago?….. I wrote about it here:  SNEAK PEEK SUNDAY


…here is an additional ‘peek’ of my not-quite-finished project.
 Maggie’s FREE PATTERN   is intended for a table runner however I’m thinking about turning mine into window panels.   I just  love the way they drape when hung.  Super pretty :]    I’ve got a ways to go but will post up some pictures when it’s complete.


In other news I have attempted to recreate this interesting pattern because I absolutely love the little flower look! There are many mistakes made here…but I’m getting it and once I do I shall share a written version of this same pattern.  That is if the artist doesn’t mind.    You can find the pictorial  pattern  HERE

What crochet/knit projects are you currently working on?  I love to see what you do so share away!  🙂

I was so excited to find this free vintage crochet  butterfly pattern via -it reminds me of my beautiful Grandmother and looks so happy there among all my crochet hearts and flowers  🙂
I have a little project in mind for these  & will share it  if when it’s complete.


Are you tired of my glass jar cozies yet?!  No?!   Well as surprising as that is, it is   good to know because I just have to share my latest creation…even if it is a  jar cozy 🙂

I came up with this neat little pattern  the other day while free styling my crochet hook.  It’s actually worked flat and then pulled up together around the glass & secured around the neck of the bottle…super duper cute, quick & easy!  I will share this pattern with you just as soon as I jot it down and re test it.

OK how beautiful is this Autumn Reflections Doily   by Cylinda Mathews?!   LOVE!  I found the (free)  pattern to be quite easy & I ended up completing a finished product in one evening while lounging & watching CNN…which incidentally is in my own humble opinion,  about the only program worth watching  (in small doses) on TV.


Also….I’ve tested my crochet hexagon pattern using worsted weight wool and it turned out really nice.  I did not intend to make more than one but after testing I’m considering working on a few more for a soft wool blanket.   So now you can grab any sized/weight hook-n-yarn and confidently work this pattern up if you are interested.


I adore beautiful, delicate crochet lace & love breaking out my tiny hooks & thread (also my granny glasses as I’m not getting any younger)


Here’s a little something I am working on at the moment.  If I ever finish it I will post up some pictures…but that may take some time.

So that’s me in my world……
What have you been up to in your nook of the planet? I hope whatever it is …it makes your heart happy!

Have a safe & peaceful weekend!  I’m off to celebrate eleven  happy years with the absolute  love of my life!
