My Free Patterns

I've been featured!

A few weeks ago I  answered a call for help at the Craftsy website.  They were looking for projects people have made that they are proud of, that they could feature on their website.  I sent in my girl's cardi's that I did a blog post on about a month or so ago.  It was selected!  You can see it here:

Now, if I'm honest that is almost the only fibre related item I have this week.  I am still plugging away on my WIP's, and trying not to start any (more) new ones!

I am still working away on my Mom's top (after taking a small break on the front, but the back is done), and I've started a tank top for myself as well. Just what I need, another project!  Why is it so compulsive to keep starting new projects?  I wanted to make a white tank top to go with the skirt I made a few weeks ago.  I like this Tiger Lily Tank Top pattern a lot, and I'm almost done with the back.
straps look odd because they cross each other, not quite there yet!

In addition, I've become addicted (I don't use this word lightly here) to the tv show Chuck.  

Apparently the UK really IS behind the times, because I just became aware of this show, and it just finished it's 4th season.  Anyway, I've been working my way through the episodes and working on my tank top. 

If you get a chance to watch it, I highly recommend it, not least because Zachary Levi is adorable.  

Lastly, I want to send out a BIG thank you to Tami over at Tami's Amis & Other Creations
Last week I talked about the pottery class I was taking and she recommended I make a yarn bowl.  It was one of those comments that goes PING!! Followed by a duh, I should have thought of that.  Not two months ago I was trolling Etsy looking at yarn bowls, and then once I started my class it never crossed my mind.  Well, thank you Tami, I started a yarn bowl in class last night!  I am super excited about it too.  I'll post pictures in a couple of weeks when it is done.

Happy Crafting everyone!!

Oh, and one last thing, I'm in the finals of a cooking competiton, please, if you have a minute, vote for me!! THANK YOU


  1. Oooh can't wait to see the yarn bowl!

  2. I too love starting projects. I just wish they finished faster :)

  3. Oh the yarn bowl will be fun.

    It's funny that you like Chuck. I haven't gotten into it. I have, however, recently discoverd The IT Crowd and think it's absolutely hilarious. :-)

  4. Great projects, I always look forward to seeing what's happing over at McGreen's! And I cannot wait to see the yarn bowl!!! (and other creations)

  5. Hmmm, a yarn bowl. Looking forward to seeing that finished. Pottery must give you a nice brake from knitting since you can probably get a pottery project done quicker!

    I must admit I've never heard of Chuck. Guess I'll need to check it out.

    Happy Fiber Arts Friday!

  6. That's so nice, getting those adorable sweaters featured so more people can admire them. Good luck with the pottery class and the yarn bowl -- isn't it great when two hobbies meet up like that?

  7. Make sure to link up your yarn bowl when it's done! I just ordered one for a friend :-)

  8. Great job! BTW, a few of us who participate in Fiber Arts Friday knit together at the yarn shop on Fridays. Your blog was brought up...most of the ladies had never watched Chuck before. tehehe, loved it.

  9. Congrats on your Girl's Cardi being chosen to be featured! I'm looking forward to seeing your yarn bowl.

  10. Congrats! Well deserved! Can't wait to see the yarn bowl too :D

  11. congrats on being featured, they look gorgeous:)

  12. Hello! Newest follower from the Say Hi Sunday blog hop! Would love for you to stop by and follow back, whenever you get a chance. Have a great week! (:


  13. So cute! How fun!! Thanks for sharing at Make Something Mondays!
