Last year my first grand daughter was born 6 weeks premature and came home from the hospital close to Valentine’s Day. I wanted to make a giant heart mat for her

I really like having handmade things on hand to give as gifts, especially when someone needs a little pick me up. I have found these little crocheted tissue covers are the gift that keeps on giving that hug. Last summer I needed a little something to give a group of ladies and so I used my “Pocket Tissue Cover” pattern and made several one afternoon.
This fall I made a wrap for my patriotic throw pillows so they would be more fall and cozy. Now that I am putting out my Christmas decorations I wanted a more festive look for those same pillows. A simple reindeer and nubby texture did the trick! (wait til you see the one for the other end of my couch!) Snappy Reindeer Pattern An ad-free,
When I designed my “Santa’s Reindeer Scarf” I fell in love with all of the little reindeer. I knew I wanted to make them into little bags and other things. I think the possibilities are endless! They would make cute coasters, pillows (alone or sewn together) and more. If you make something from these little guys please share a picture with me. Reindeer Squares Pattern
This summer, while on our way to Mount Rushmore, I realized I had left my water bottle at home. I like to have one with a short handle to hang from my truck door. We do have lots of cup holders, but this is close and handy… plus my husband tends to hog the other ones in the front. So it was just a matter
I recently designed a hat, shawl and water bottle holder with this simple stitch pattern. I love the look of it and knew I wanted to make a scarf.

I had seen lots of fun projects popping up made with this finger looping technique and decided to finally give it a try. I started by watching some videos on the different stitches you can do with this
Each year at Christmas I wish I had a pile of handmade things to give as gifts. I start each year with a resolution to make gifts throughout the year. When The Country Willow put together a gift making event I wanted to join in. What a great way to get 12 projects ready! I hope you will join our fun. Thanks to the first
I always wish I had the right words to brighten someone’s day. When I see the “Chic Sheep Yarn” colors they make me happy. I knew I wanted to make a cute little project that could be whipped up in HAPPY COLORS to spread sunshine each time someone sees it. Thanks to Red Heart Yarns for sending me this yarn! I have had a lot
