Another One for Testing

This is a gorgeous crochet hat that will be perfect for fall, mild winter or Spring. The crochet pattern includes an option for a Messy bun hat as well as a Slouchy. Double the fun, right? I designed this hat with Craftsy's Sprightly yarn and absolutely loved the results. It had the right amount of drape and thickness for this project and I plan to use it more in my future projects.


Who would like to make this yummy crochet pattern? The crochet doughnut coasters come with a holder to keep them organized. Surprise your guests with this cute set. I wouldn't blame them if they feel like drinking coffee and eating one of them, lol! If you love home decor like me, this will make a cute addition to your home. Enjoy!

My first Blog Post

This is more intimidating than fun. I have no clue what I am going to write. My profile gives the intro and now what ( scratches head) ? Why not make it about what I am going to share here? Why not give a trailer of the full movie to follow? Okay, I am thinking aloud!

In my blog you can expect to find sewing projects, tutorials and tips for use in everyday life. Some wearable, some home decor , some kitchen items, some storage solutions and lots more. Nope, I don't have it all planned out, I only have an outline and will paint the picture as time goes. We all evolve over time getting exposed to new ideas, inspiration and needs, don't we?

Being the mom of three, this venture is sure going to be an adventure. Life has always been a balancing act for women playing multiple roles and I know adding one more to the list is not going to be easy. All my life I have lived for the joy of my family members and this one is going to be just for me. My craft is my way of staying sane in the midst of all the chaos and I hope it stays that way.
