Do you hide your yarn? Show me where you hide your yarn…warning…it won’t be hiding anymore! Lol!

I only bought one thing at the Fiber Festival today…a kit to learn how to add beads to my crocheting!

Saw so many different types of wool. My favorite was an alpaca/silk combo. Typically 80/20.

Super washed Merino wool is what was included in the kit I bought, it’s really nice too.

Tons of finger weight yarn that I have not used, excited to try it out!

I think about 95% of the items that were displayed were knitted. Very few crocheted items!!
Who's with me on this one?
Loved sharing this project with Coach Mel. She rocks!

This page is all about crochet! I'm here to discuss, help you with problems, give you tips and hint

Crochet Christmas Tree Tutorial 11/25/2021

Crochet Christmas Tree Tutorial

Just in case you want a little something to do while the turkey is cooking. New video tutorial for a cute tree decoration/ornament.

Crochet Christmas Tree Tutorial Join me to make this cute Christmas Tree ornament. You'll start with some simple crochet and then combine that with some beads. You can contact me via emai...


Quick crochet craft project I whipped up today. If you have a Joann Fabric near you RUN and get these beads (I got others too) they are on sale for only $1.99 which is a great price!! Here’s the instructions if you want to try it!
Ch 66
sc in back bump of chain and across (this is a bit of a pain but worth it)
At end, ch 1 turn, sc in each sc to end.
Leave a long tail when you finish off.
Thread a small needle with tail of yarn. Start at top, put needle through “tree” and through 1st bead, curve tree and put needle through tree and into next bead. Continue all the way down making the tree wider as you go. You have to plan ahead a bit to make sure you don’t “run out of tree”.
Thread yarn through wooden block at bottom and then through a small bead that will not slip through the hole in the wooden block (I use a need that came in between the glass beads). Go around the outside of the bead and back up through the wooden block and into the tree. Fasten off with a knot and weave in ends.
I then attached yarn to the top center of the tree and went up through the star and knotted that to make a hanger.
Hope you give it a try! I’ll make a video tutorial soon.

Work for it is exactly what Barbara did on this Afghan she made for her son. She ripped and ripped several times to get it just right! The moral of the story, if you are not happy with what you are doing take the time to fix it, you’ll be glad you did!


Teaching and helping other make beautiful things with their hands is so rewarding. Thank you for crocheting with me!


Crocheting in front of a nice warm cozy fire…don’t get much better!

Give a person a crochet hook and they will make a chain. Teach someone a few stitches and the C2C pattern and she will make a vest…or two!

Mary is so creative! She made these two vests without a pattern…just sketched it out and made them!

Selecting the winner of the 12 Point Blanket kit.


Close call this morning…I can hear my dad saying “Slow down Mel!” Was cutting a sweatshirt with a rotary cutter to stuff some of my crocheted pumpkins and I took off a chunk of my finger and nail. My son came to the studio and bandages me up. My main concern….is is going to impact my crocheting?!?! It’s ok, a bit slower but I can get it done!
