Hello Everyone, I love to crochet with thread and you can make such dainty and lacy things with thread. They do have different size of thread that you can use to crochet with. What is amazing is that the smaller the number of the thread the bigger the strand of thread it is. You would think it would be the other way around for example a size 20 thread is thinner than a size 3 fashion thread. I use the classic size 10 the most when I work with thread.
I have come to find out that thread is versatile. You can make so many things with the thread. You can make anything from clothing to jewelry and even art.
Below are some of the items that I have created with thread.
Let me know if you have created anything with thread and if you any favorite patterns.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a Fabulous Evening!
Hello Everyone, I am excited because with Spring the camping season will be here soon. Yes I love to go camping. I do need to get busy and find room for more items like towels, silverware and etc. I then started to research on crochet patterns for a camper. Below you will find some of those patterns.

I used 2 pipe cleaners twisted together
Row 1 Sc in the 2nd ch from hook, sc in the next st, now take the 2 twisted pipe cleaners and start to sc over them, continue to do this across and at the end sc in the last 2 sts, fasten off and weave in the ends
Now sew the handle onto the basket about 2 inches down from the top, I used the variegated yarn to sew the handle on and as you can see below it blended really well.
I then proceeded to glue on the gems for a finished basket. If you have any questions please contact me and I will be happy to answer them for you.
I love going through old photos and seeing what the fashion was back in the day. This had me thinking about how fashion has changed in the years of crochet. I know it got it’s start by the making of lace, doilies and such. I then wanted to delve into the decades to see what the styles were and how they evolved through the years.
It has always fascinated me on how fashion trends have a way of coming back around. I thought it would be fun to take a trip back in time to see what those fashions were. I hope you have enjoyed taking that trip back in time with me.
As always thank you so much for taking a look and stopping by.
Since I have become a Grandma I have loved to make things for those precious babies. I also love the fact that when they are babies it does not take me very long to create and finish those items. I will often end up searching the internet for patterns and ideas. This of course can take up some time because I will get engrossed in the process. If I do not monitor the time I spend on this I can spend hours upon hours on the computer. 🙂
Here is a costume that I created for my Grand Daughter when she was a baby. She was Miss Peanut Guy.
At the moment we have 12 grandchildren and trying to keep up with all of them gets to be quite interesting. Lately I have been on a kick of making ponchos and had made one for my Son and Daughter in Law. My Grand Daughter saw them and of course wanted Grandma to make her one! Below is a picture of her modeling her poncho for me.
My Grandson also loves to have his picture taken and was a nice model for me with his fedora hat I made him.
I wish I had more time to spend on making things for those that I love! One of these days I hope to find that time 🙂
Are you one of the many who celebrate this holiday? I know I have some Irish in my blood and so I wondered where and when did this holiday come about. Below is some information about this holiday thanks to Wikipedia.
Saint Patrick’s Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick (Irish: Lá Fhéile Pádraig, “the Day of the Festival of Patrick”), is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461), the foremost patron saint of Ireland.
On St Patrick’s Day it is customary to wear shamrocks and/or green clothing or accessories (the “wearing of the green”). St Patrick is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to thepagan Irish.
Well this certainly explains why there is so much alcohol consumption on this day! I often wondered too where the custom of wearing green came from.
Here is a cute Irish Hat to make and then to wear while celebrating!
I can say that I did learn some things about why we celebrate this day. Have a great time celebrating this Irish Holiday and I hope you gained some inspiration on some items that you can create for this day!
Thank you as always for stopping by and entering my wacky creative world!
I love watching Nascar and I am a Fan of Jeff Gordon. My husband has a room full of items of Jeff Gordon so you know he is definitely a fan. I am not sure any more of what year I did this afghan as a surprise for my husband. I was able to surprise him which is not an easy feat to accomplish. I was able to crochet the majority of the afghan while he was around because I of course am always crocheting something for around the house. There is a part of the afghan that I did while he was at work and I had a day off of work. There were times that I took my mother-in-law to a doctors appointment and took it with me to work on. I was able to complete the afghan without him realizing what I was doing. It had also took me longer to accomplish than what I had expected. I wanted to have it completed by Christmas and then I wanted to have it done by his Birthday and that was in January. Needless to say I did not get it done by either of those dates. I was able to give it to him about a month later. He absolutely loved it. I guess the reason I am writing about this is because Jeff Gordon is going to be retiring after this year and we will miss seeing him on the race track!
The back of this afghan is just the checkers. I had found a picture of Jeff in cross stitch and adapted it to the crochet. I made a rectangle in the afghan stitch so I was able to cross stitch his likeness on to the rectangle. The blanket was all made with the checker squares and sewn together. After I finished the rectangle I sewed it to the middle of the afghan.
If you are interested or know someone who is a fan there are some patterns for afghans that I have found.
