WIP Wednesday

I love “Wordless Wednesday” but have found that I’m always in the middle of something. Hence, Work In Progress Wednesday.    Here’s how it works:  Show off what you’re making. Post a photo of a project you’re in the middle of….as much or as little […]

Hookin’ Up: Day 8 – Chez Mukweto

    I decided to take part in Kathryn’s Hookin’ Up Project this month!  For the month of July, we’re spreading the word about crochet blogs!  Someone described them as “Pay It Forward” posts, so that we can get to know some of the other crocheters that love to blog, and maybe […]

Well, my stars for this beanie came in, just in the nick of time.  Here’s the finished version.  What do you think? Today is also my brothers’ birthday.  He deserves to celebrate.  He just came back (last week) from Afghanistan.  So happy he’s home safe!  I […]
