A Perfect Rose

I've been crocheting a scarf using sea foam green sport yarn and the crocodile or scale stitch. I love how it's turning out as it reminds me of rose leaves. With that in mind I decided I would end the scarf with cabbage roses. That meant the hunt was on for a perfect rose to embellish my scarf. I was surfing on Pinterest and found a tutorial (with illustrations) for a gorgeous, but simple rose pattern! I thought I'd share it with the whosoevers that visit my blog.


P. s. I plan to post a picture of my finished scarf when done.

Gigantic Doily!

Love the look of doilies, but the thought of using tiny thread and minuscule hooks intimidate you? How about making a doily rug that uses big ford and a big hook? Here is a link I found to a website with a free doily rug pattern!

Get artsy!

Freebies: Embroidery Patterns

Another love of mine is embroidery. My Nordic heritage plays a driving roll in a lot of what I enjoy. I love to cook (most of the time). I enjoy needle arts. I love wood working. I really enjoy painting and crocheting. My life as a full-time wife, mom, grandmother and minister keep me busy, but when my regular work is done I make sure and spend time creating using the gifts God gave me. I'm also somewhat of a geek so I share my loves in blogs and with social media. Here is a link to free embroidery patterns you might enjoy? 

Once again, enjoy!
