Well, that's been 8 years now. So, we decided to finally make it happen. Once a week, usually Thursday nights, we are going to paint for one hour. After we get the boys to bed we set-up a still life, of something we find around the house, and set the timer for 60 minutes.
Broomstick Lace Tutorial « Speckless Blog This is a very wordy and picture-ey tutorial because it is a pretty involved process, so please bear with me! I’ll break it into four parts: Tips, Starting the Base, Working the First Row of Loops, and Making the First Row of Lace. This is gonna be intense . . . Lattice Pie Mug Toppers To continue our week of pie crust ideas, these lattice cup toppers are one of my favorite projects for fall! They are simple to make – just a bit of cutting and criss-crossing and you will be quickly on the way to wowing your guests. The baked toppers keep warm drinks toasty while you finish dinner, and they are the perfect treat to have alongside cider. Make the crusts by rolling out dough for two pie crusts, if you’re making your own you can roll it into rectangular shapes (If you use the pre-made dough I promise I won’t tell).
Crochet Corner: Spring Bunnies Since this past Tuesday was the first official day of Spring, I thought I would do a Crochet Corner post on my Spring Bunnies! I’m hoping the weather will be Spring-like, but we’re known to have unexpected blasts of winter where I live *fingers crossed*. It was also exactly one year ago when my first pattern for CRAFT got published on their website. I was beyond thrilled when former editor-in-chief Natalie Zee Drieu commissioned me to design a Spring project even though I had only been blogging for two months. After it went live, Natalie told me that the Spring Bunnies pattern was extremely popular, and I’ve seen more final pictures of the Spring Bunnies than any of my other amigurumi designs! Little Christmas socks: the pattern Hello hello hello! How are you today? WWOOOOOOOOW! I am soooo thrilled by all your wonderful comments concerning the little socks:) Thank you so much! I could not make you wait longer so I managed to finish quickly the “how to” so I can share it with you today
Spring Bunnies When Craftzine asked me to make a Spring amigurumi pattern for them, I excitedly jumped at the opportunity. Several months ago, I was inspired by a photo I saw on tumblr (there was no source at the time) of a floppy-eared bunny with big feet adorned with a pretty flower. As soon as I saw that photo, I knew I wanted to try making something similar. I recently found out that the bunny was made by Lue and Sue who does absolutely beautiful work. Ryan and I had an idea to use the same pattern to make two bunnies: a boy bunny with ears sticking straight up, and a girl bunny with floppy ears. The boy bunny could be holding a carrot in hopes of wooing the girl bunny!

Baby Snow Dragon Author Marjorie Jones Introduction This was one of my very first amigurumi patterns, inspired by my love of dragons, and a result of my not being able to find an easy pattern for a small crocheted dragon. This pattern is also one of my most popular, and I am delighted to find it is still going strong.
