Beaded Crocheted Bracelets

Today I'd like to share a really pretty bracelet tutorial I found a few days ago! Isn't it gorgeous!? Yep. Love it. Find it over here.

I'm also working on a baby blanket that I'm testing for Smooth Fox Crochet and Knit. It's looking lovely! I'm making it in Red Heart and Caron One Pound. Here's a little sneak peek...

What are you working on?

A new look (again!)

Okay, I promise! Last time! My new design! And I have to say--I adore it! Fresh, fun, and summery! Have a look around and enjoy!
I've been working on a new tutorial for a yarn carrier. I'll be posting that very soon!


On the Hook...

Hey all,
I thought I'd drop in for a few and show my latest projects. I'm very impressed and inspired by all the crochet goodness in blog-land lately!
As some of you know I've joined the CAL hosted by Le Monde De Sucrette. The premis of this CAL is to crochet a granny square as large as you possibly can. I've decided to make mine out of simply soft in super bright colors! Take a look...
I'm loving it so far! I think I'll go until I have a decent lap-ghan size. Just big enough to snuggle under on the couch. Want to join? I thought you might. Go here to join in with the granny goodness.
I've also been working on some flower coasters. I've seen these in various places the last few days and desperately wanted to find the pattern. A quick search in Ravelry and Voila!
Mmmmm... delish. Don't you agree?
Well I must go now! Don't forget to enter my giveaway!
Bye for now


Granny Square Cookies!

Oh. My. Goodness. These just make me want to jump into my computer screen! I don't think I'd be able to eat these because they are so perfect! Also, check out those "yarn" cookies in the background! Too cute! Check out the tutorial over here.

Also, don't forget to enter my giveaway! Find that post here. You have until July 26th to enter for your chance to win your choice of product from my Etsy shop.
