The Crochet Clutch

I'm very excited about my newest creation, The Crochet Clutch. My Hanging Circular Knitting Needle Holders have been quite popular with the knitting folk so I thought I'd create something for the clever crochet gal, such as myself. This clutch came from my frustration of getting all comfy and cozy on the couch, ready for a few hours of relaxing crochet, only to realize that I didn't grab my glasses...hrrmph! Get up, grab my glasses, sit back down, get comfy...shoot! My lips are feeling a bit chappy...hrrmph! Get up, grab my chap stick, sit back down, get all comfy...poop! My hands are dry and I can't crochet productively with dry hands...hrrmph...(get the picture?). This sweet little clutch has 5 interior slots that will hold up to 10 crochet hooks, plus, a pocket for a small pair of scissors. Deep enough to hold other miscellaneous items so that everything is is contained in one little pouch. Just stock it with your necessities of choice and keep it in your project bag you're ready to roll!

Saffron Ash, a Modern Tablerunner

I love Lotta Jansdotter and have quickly gobbled up her fabrics as fast as my budget will allow. I appreciate her clear designs and bold, pure colors. Her Echo fabric line is so brilliant that I wanted to allow the fabrics to speak for themselves by framing them in a dark solid and keeping the design very simple. I adore all of the fabrics but my favorite (today) is the Small Spring Buds in Grey. It is so very delicate and light I am thinking about incorporating it into some baby quilts. Of course I will most likely have a new favorite tomorrow and yet another the next day. Her fabrics make me very happy and that's what it's all about, isn't it?

I'm at it Again!

Get out of the way, here come the dishtowels! I really went overboard with the dishtowels this time, but I just couldn't help it. These new fabrics just called for some sassy, fancy towels to doozy up the kitchen, guest bath or for an absolutely fabulous hostess gift! I always make extra sets for myself and for giving as gifts. These newest sets are truly dazzling!
