I have been taking a little break from cross stitch to work on a gift for a family member who is on the way.


It’s not my usual style, but fillet crochet is always pretty. I haven’t neglected my cross stitch entirely.


The chairs work up very fast, I’m almost ready for beads on this one.

I also made this. I found the pattern on Slightly Slouchy Crochet Hat I like Melanie’s videos, she does a nice job showing the tricky parts. If you are interested in learning new techniques, she would be a good place to start.


I am considering adding more “slouch” but this is my first slouchy hat. The fun thing about any pattern is making them your own.

I’m looking for Spring, but I think it must be under the snow, so I will continue crocheting to keep warm.


It’s hard to believe it’s almost the end of 2014. It’s time to ponder resolutions.

I’ve heard of some stitchers starting a stitch from stash resolution, that would be hard. There are going to be many lovely patterns around the corner.

It would be easier to give up chocolate.

I will have to ponder my own craft-related resolution. Maybe I will promise to finish two WIPs before I start a new project.

And now a progress report.


This blanket is for a charity auction, but I like it so much I might make another just for me after this one is done.


I made much progress on the chair. This one goes fast. Iris is on hold until I get the beads. I thought I had them, but I can’t find them. Which means they might be in the wrong bag. I’m sure I’ll use them for another project one day if I bought double.
