Flower Ornaments

Hello All!  Hope this finds you all doing well and getting lots of fun, hooky time in. :)  As you might recall, I am crocheting ornaments for my Christmas tree this year.  Here are some flower ornaments that I recently made.  Finished the last one last night, as a matter of fact.  I got the pattern as a free Ravelry download.  If you go to Ravelry and search for “Flower Ring Decoration” it should come up for you.  I used a smaller ring than specified, mainly because the 1” is all I could find. (Plus it is a nicer size for my tree ornaments.) I made 28 sc in the ring and continued with the pattern as instructed.  Then I borrowed an idea from my round Christmas ornaments to add the hanger and a bit of bling.

As always, thanks so much for looking!


Some cropped close-ups for you.

Happy Fall!

Hooray!  Fall is here!  Woohoo!  Can you tell I am excited?!  Fall is my favorite time of year.  :D  Today’s picture is of a doily I made a while back, and I wanted to show you how my daughter has it displayed on her kitchen table. :)

Slip Stitch Dishcloths

I have been faithfully working on my Sarafia squares, which I am doing for a CAL, but I can’t post them here for fear the “wrong” person will see them.  After Christmas I will post pics of that.  ;) During the past week I have been having lots of fun whipping up these slip stitch dishcloths.  They are so easy to make, and work up so quickly.  I can’t seem to stop making them!  :D  If you’d like to make some of your own, you can find the free pattern here!



Not only can these be used as dishcloths, but I think they would make great hot pads on which to set a hot pan or dish.



Close up of how they look.  Love how they look knitted, don’t you? Yet they’re quick and easy slip stitches!  :)


I also got the idea that this stitch would make some really nice coasters.  What do you think?  I think I see more coaster sets in my future.  :D


As always, thanks for visiting my blog.  I truly appreciate it and thoroughly enjoy any comments you leave.  Thanks!
