I have always wanted to design a large flower washcloth so after making the "Jonathan Flowers" cloth I thought I would try a large version. I really like how it turned out. I made the purple on first and then a friend suggested scrubby yarn for the center. Since I have to hold another strand of yarn with scrubby so I can see the stitches I did the whole cloth with 2 strands. It turned out a little ... [ Read More ]
March definitely came in like a lion this year and is still roaring, don't you think? I am hoping for a nice little lamb departure for sure. Every year I've always heard "if March comes in like a lion it will go out like a lamb" and vice versa. For some reason this always fascinates me so this year I decided to make a pillow that has a lion on one side and a lamb on the other. While ... [ Read More ]

You can get the crochet pattern for free on my blog or scroll down for a pattern that includes these flowers and a bag. I designed them as a washcloth, but I thought they would make a great applique on a bag too. This simple bag really shows off their ... [ Read More ]

His mom has made him probably every hat ... [ Read More ]
Since we live in a desert and have gravel pits in town (where they mine away the mountain and turn it into gravel, sand, etc), dusting is an ongoing project in my house. I go through these duster things like crazy. So this past weekend, when I noticed I had tons of the handles that come with the duster sheets, but no sheets, I decided it was time for a change. Yes, I know a cloth works too, ... [ Read More ]
There are lots of crochet patterns for washcloth/dishcloths. My favorites are ones that whip up quickly, can be made on a road trip without a lot of concentration and are thick and strong. I got lucky (hence the name... plus St. Patrick's Day is on my mind lately) and these turned out to fit all of those things. The ridges are easy to create, add some thickness and help scrub. The ...
