Fall Crochet Hot Pad

I am inspired by creation when I design many of my crochet projects. The Master Designer created such a variety of shapes, colors and textures that no matter where we look, we can find plenty of inspiration. Enter the little acorn – a uniquely shaped seed for a giant oak. With their textured caps and nutty bodies they’ve become a symbol for fall. I love of acorns. Aren’t they so cute and unique? Since I love their design I thought[Read more]

All that plastic goes in the landfill to never breakdown and makes for mountains of waste from[Read more]

I also love beautiful edgings and thought it would be fun to take a piece of the oversized edging from the Colorida Hammock Blanket project (a FREE pattern found here on our blog) and turn it into this quick and unique home decor item. I love how this project[Read more]
