A week of projects!

Experimenting with a smaller size hook and lighter weight yarn ...
I might just end up with a different color kerchief for every day!
Crocheted Drawstring Bag
Our weekend adventure of making salt dough ornaments.
I was inspired by the sophisticated look of Annalea's and the recipe was perfect!


Hand Sewn Dahlia Pin
Inspired by Megan Reardon. I used the pattern, just not the glue.

Crocheted Kerchief

Inspired again, or maybe I just always am? I came across a pattern for a crocheted kerchief. The first one I tried was very easy. The second one not so much, even with being able to read a pattern by someone else the directions would have given me a result I wasn't looking for. I still have to write it all out for the next time, but I changed both so they worked for me. They are all crocheted with Caron Simply Soft yarn. They are comfy, soft and light weight!

My results...

From Autumn to Winter

My first owl bag is not quite done yet, but I had to share anyway. 
Inspired by all the falling leaves of course!

With the craft room becoming cold enough to turn the heater on, the thoughts of snow began. Thankfully we haven't had any yet. I finished my first ever Whimsical Christmas painting this past weekend.
