Hi All, Drop me a note and let me know what else you'd like to see from me!

last month

August went by so fast! And took the dog days of summer with it... but not before we explored all things canine: recipes, DIY dog beds, home decor ideas, and fiber crafts that celebrate our furry friends!

If you follow me on twitter then you heard I had a minor accident that injured my hand and pushed back the debut of my latest crochet pattern: Fergus the pup... but stayed tuned right here for the latest on this project, or follow me on ravelry for regular progress updates. I can't wait to share this one with all of you!

Catch up on last month's stories ;D

this month

September=back to school... at least it always will for me, regardless of how many years it's been since I was actually enrolled;D School is such a big part of growing up, that it's hard to grow out of the memories; classroom displays, teacher's gifts, and who didn't love back to school shopping? This month we'll take a trip down memory lane... and use that inspiration to create thoughtful office gifts, ladies custom tailored school boy blazers, even our own personal classic chalkboard. And of course we'll transform some flea market furniture finds, just for fun!



next month

October brings the autumn weather, and for me that means sweater season! If you're a knitter you will love this month's post on my favorite free sweater patterns. Not into making a whole sweater? I'll also share my very own patterns for quick-to-knit fall basic acessories! And of course, we won't forget to celebrate Halloween! From decorations to home made costumes, we have lots to share! Get a sneak peak of what's to come on my latest pinterest board;D

Coming soon ;D
