shop update 4/4


This week's shop update is now live!



I'm excited to introduce 2 new products this week. The first are these adorable cotton daisy pincushions. They come in red, green, aqua, and pink!


The 2nd are these "sassy hoops". Each one has a different saying on it with a cute crochet embellishment. Once these are sold out some sayings might not be back for a while, so get them while they are available :)

hello april

Hi everyone! Happy April (I know I'm a day late).



 After having a terrible weekend I am so grateful that Mother Nature gave me a little glimpse of Spring yesterday. I got to wear flip flops, walk up to the craft store, spotted some spring flowers at Home Depot, and even Sophie loved not having to trudge through snow.




I am making some progress on a new ripple blanket that I will share soon :-)



Hope you all are having a fabulous start to April!

Patchwork Crochet Blanket



I started this patchwork blanket around this time last year and finally finished it up last week.



It's a big blanket, it fits nicely on my full size bed. The pattern is from the wonderful Dottie Angel, t is called the Ordinarily Extraordinary Blanket. You can find the awesome tutorial here.


I used mainly Red Heart acrylic yarn for this project. I have to admit something, when I first finished the blanket I really did not like the combination of colors. It was even too bright and colorful for me, but then I put in on my bed and the colors softened and now I am completely smitten with it! One of my favorite finished blankets to date!




And of course Sophie is a fan :)


Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday! Lots of love! xoxo

Red crochet granny square pillow

 Remember my red Cath Kidston blanket? This pillow was inspired by it!


Love how it turned out! It is so cottagey. Is that a word? I crocheted this cutie out of 100% cotton and it has an adorable red polka dot backing.

It will be available in my shop tomorrow at 7pm eastern time. Now I'm off to make another one for me :)

New Pattern - Vintage Inspired Crochet Flower Potholder

Hi everyone!

I am so excited to introduce you to my newest pattern...  The Vintage Inspired Crochet Flower Potholder. I created it after being inspired by a gorgeous vintage red rose potholder that I own. It is so intricate and delicate made out of cotton crochet thread and a teeny tiny hook. I wanted to make something similar in style, but more modern by using worsted weight cotton. Here is what I came up with and I have to say I'm in love! They look perfect in my vintage inspired kitchen and are adorable grouped together on the wall as art. I hope you will love the pattern as much as I do! It is now available in my shop as an instant download. It's the perfect lazy Sunday project!
