So I recently started making these crocheted necklaces...

And they are just too fun! So many different ways to do them, and so little time in the day! Here are the ones i have made so far:

Crochet scrap yarn project: Corsages!

I have found a cool way to use up those bits of scrap yarn in the form of corsages! I think they would be so cute pinned to a sweater, or to a hat, or even to one's purse. I have created a tutorial for making these fun and different little projects!

So i start out with a circle:

Then I start adding fringe:

More fringe:

then I make a variety of flowers and leaves:

I start to sew on these different flowers and leaves:

I simply love the element of surprise when it comes to color so I add some hot pink little curly-q doo da's:

I give the fringe a bit of a chopped up haircut:

Then I make some curly q's and some dingle dangle balls and it is finished!

Welocome to my blog!

I am new to the whole blogging thing, but my love for crochet is not.

My mom tried to teach me to crochet as a small child, but I couldn't really figure it out, I could crochet a mile long chain but that was about it!

Then one day way back in 1998 or so, she sat me down again, with a very basic pattern and some yarn we purchased from our local hobby store, and took me step by step on how to do it. It finally clicked for me, and I have been a crocheting fool ever since!

So here it is, my first blog, I hope you enjoy, as I plan to feature all of the cool crochet things I find on the web, but also show the process of my own creations!

Thank you for visiting, I hope you enjoy your stay!
