Last week, my mother and I went YARN SHOPPING!!! While we are admiring all of the beautiful yarns at Hobby Lobby, I asked her what she would like for Mothers Day. My sweet mom says “coasters.” <– This is one thing I love so much about my mom. She could have easily said “a bedspread.” But she would rather have something simple, small, beautiful, and something that would be stress free for me. So, obviously this free crochet pattern is designed for and inspired by my momma
Every morning my daughter sits on the floor in front of the TV asking for her cereal. After she takes about 5 bites of her fruit loops she lifts the bowl up to drink the milk- like she has seen me do. It never fails, the milk and cereal go everywhere.
When I was a young girl, I remember going to my Aunt Debbie’s house and sitting on little rugs while we ate our Oodles of Noodles (Ramen Noodles). This Sweet Tart Crochet Rug will be my daughters new breakfast rug. I plan to also take it outside when she is drawing on the sidewalk with chalk. Nothing is worse than wearing a dress or shorts and sitting on your knees on the sidewalk while creating your masterpiece. The best part about this rug, its washable, durable, and looks as delicious as Sweet Tarts!
Once a week, a few members of my family and I meet up for a Bible study. It never fails, I always forget my highlighter and pen. This week, I had an *aaaah* moment when I realized I could design something to attach to my Bible that could hold and store my highlighter. Eliminating my problem of not knowing what to do with my highlighter when its not in use. I present to you “Penzy”– A FREE crochet pattern for a highlighter/Pen holder for books. Penzy has an adjustable strap making it perfect for all books no matter the size!

About a week ago my sister, Miranda, from Work At Home Adventures asked me to make her a Potholder and Washcloth set for her to give to some lucky person as a gift. (Yes, anyone who receives a handmade item as a gift is lucky!) My sister supplied the yarn and everything! She brought me one of those big rolls (on a cone) of Peaches and Creme Cotton Yarn from Walmart. I couldn’t be any happier with how it turned out….. unless… maybe next time use “I Love this Cotton.” It’s what the potholder pattern calls for,
I found this FREE Flower Potholder Pattern through Ravelry!

After creating the Simple Dish Cloth and the Shell of a Washcloth, I knew I would be making many more washcloths to give away during Christmas. Here are a few I made with the little bit of cotton yarn I have left. I will soon be going out to get more yarn! When making these All Purpose Washcloths I wanted to make sure that the size of the holes were not only perfect for in the bath and shower but also for the dishes and house cleaning.
