You've got it; it's a Friday and I'm kind of busy playing mommy this weekend. I'll have something interesting to share with you tomorrow...or Sunday for sure (probably pictures too).

I caught wind of this new stitch from Pinterest (the Tunisian stitch) and found an awesome pattern to follow from the Lion Brand website. It's a really nice [...]

My Latest Project – Crocheting a Tunisian Afghan for CJ

I've been on a serious crochet kick lately. I've had this hobby for years and years - I love it - but stopped doing any of it after I made Zach's afghan last year. I'm not sure why I just stopped crocheting. It's always been such a therapeutic hobby for me (and a very rewarding [...]

It's now - and will be until the end of the month - the absolute busiest time of the year for me. This is when I begin my marathon of crochet projects...in hopes of being able to give one or two handmade gifts to family or friends. I don't know if you remember last year. [...]
