DIY Striped Flower Vase

Flower Vase

I think I’m still celebrating Cinco de Mayo, or at least wish I was. Maybe that’s why I’ve been so inspired by a beautiful serape blanket we have. I love how the colors in it are bold, summery, kind of off beat, yet work together so well. My love for these colors kind of surprised me. Isn’t it funny where we get our inspiration from? I thought it would be fun to recreate the stripe patterns with yarn on thrift store, mismatched glassware and turn them into flower vases.READ MORE

tiny stones





Whenever we go to the beach (lucky us, its minutes away in several directions), I always look out for smooth stones, pebbles, and beach glass. For fun I thought I would try crocheting a few small stones. They turned out kind of cute, what do you think? Thinking of trying a few more, with a smaller crochet hook, if my eyes can stand it.

Granny Square Sampler Project- Week 13


Granny Square wk 13

This week’s granny square is brought to us by Beth (who is @cookiecat57 on Instagram- remember you can tag your photos on instagram with #grannysquaresampler so we can all see each other’s). I like this one because its quite different from the ones we’ve done over the past few weeks, retro, unusual, and just plain interesting. So let’s do it! It is called “The Whirlygig” and needs no introduction other than Beth’s photo, which she also kindly sent me.READ MORE

Granny Square Sampler Project- Week 9

How is everyone doing on the granny square sampler? Is everyone up to date on their squares? I know some have been crocheting on car trips and I am so jealous, I get car sick when I try. All that wasted passenger seat time!

This week I have a treat to share with you for our assignment today. I asked Erin if she would be willing to jump in and share a granny square for the sampler, and she graciously agreed. This week’s square is a sweet dimensional flower she chose for us.READ MORE

Granny Square Sampler Project- Week 6

Well, at the end of the first week of summer vacation (i.e, kid home, but I’m still working) has gone swimmingly. Ian’s school is out today, so next week the wise craft house is officially “summering”.

Bring it, summer. We’re waiting for you.
