All of the infinity scarf and cowl crochet patterns are not only stunning and stylish, they are easy enough to crochet quickly!
This list was inspired by my need to find easy projects I could make while I am recovering from neck surgery. I found so many amazing patterns, I am not sure where to begin… I guess starting with #1 is maybe the best option? Continue reading →
I was going to do a round up of fall wreaths, but instead I thought these DIY fall buntings would be much more fun! They make me want to go dig through all of my fabric bins and paper drawers to see what I can come up with. How about you? Continue reading →
My last post explained how to make t-shirt yarn using old t-shirts. I made this yarn specifically to crochet a t-shirt rug! I will do my best to explain how I made my crochet t-shirt rug so you can try it too. Continue reading →
Since we are on the topic of baby quilts, this is the quilt I made for my first grandchild, Blake Leigh Ann, who was born in May 2011. This was quilt #93, made in March of 2011. I finished it in time for Katie’s (and Blake’s) baby shower. Continue reading →
First of all, I wanted to use this post to announce the re-opening of my Etsy store. It has been quite awhile since I have posted anything for sale but that is going to change! I had a lot of fun making these little gems and look forward to making many more.
I have a plastic bin in my craft cupboard that I use to collect extra quilt blocks. Usually, when I am designing my own quilt tops, I make way too make blocks plus some quilt patterns I use leave me with extras… I can’t bear to just toss these so I have been collecting them. Recently I decided to go through this bin and see what I could come up with. Continue reading →
Let me introduce you to my quilt number 19. This fabric was actually posted as a kit with another pattern. I bought it because I loved the fabric, but not necessarily the pattern so I was very happy when I found the Gone Country quilt pattern in an Issue of Quilting and Embroidery magazine.

This calendar quilt, named Strolling Down the Block, was the 18th quilt I started working on. I say started working on because I started it in January of 2003 but didn’t finish it until the middle of 2004 so I did finish some other quilts before this one was done. Continue reading →
Perhaps I was a little too excited when my daughter (my oldest child) went to college… I made these wall hangings for her and her friends and dorm mates so they could decorate and personalize the hallway outside of their dorm rooms. Continue reading →
My 15th quilt was made from a pattern from The Buggy Barn named Heart Crazies (sorry, this quilt looks like it is no longer available). I made this in March of 2004 at the same quilt retreat that I made Katie’s Graduation Memory Quilt. Because Katie’s quilt was going to be a surprise, I chose to also make this quilt so I would have something to show off when I got home. Continue reading →
I made this Spongebob Squarepants for my son, Christopher, in March 2004. He loved the show and I was hooked on buying things on Ebay — which is where I found more than a dozen different spongebob Squarepants prints. These two things, along with the fact that he had been bugging me for a quilt since I made my daughter her Wizard of Oz Quilt, were the inspiration for my 13th quilt (made in March of 2004).
