New~To~Me Camera!

I have a new~to~me camera!!! It is a gently used Nikon CoolPix P510 that I bought from my awesome friend (and crochet mom) Kim. It arrived on Friday and I immediately ran around the house snapping pictures of EVERYTHING! I’m having way too much fun, and I haven’t even gotten to reading the manual yet. Imagine the fun that will happen then!!

Yarnie friends: you will want to read this post all the way to the end, as there is a surprise for you at the bottom!!

So, here are some of the camera test photos, along with a little about our weekend.

As I said, I started out by running around the house snapping pictures of everything. Mostly I took pictures that I knew would have not worked so well in the past, just to see how the new camera could handle a challenge. [click to continue…]

Cleaning, playing, and dancing girls

We have had a very busy couple of weeks. There have been a lot of activities with the school and the Girl Scouts. Plus playing. Lots of playing. And school for the girls and working for me. It’s been a blur. But I did manage to get some snaps along the way, so here are a few.

Four Points Square ~ Free Crochet Pattern

Four Points Square ~ free crochet pattern by Jessie At Home

Four Points Square
Free Crochet Pattern
Easy Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

This easy afghan square is great for beginners! It uses just 3 stitches: chain, single crochet and double crochet, to create a four point star inside the square. The Four Points Square can be used with other squares to make a sampler blanket, or it can be used on its own to make a throw with a classic look. Using the suggested yarn and gauge will create a 12″ square, but you can certainly change the yarn and gauge to make this square in a variety of sizes.

Wednesday Round Up ~ Coasters and Placemats

Coasters and Placemats ~ Crochet Pattern Round Up from Jessie At Home

I drink a lot of ice water in the summer, and my cup always ends up in a puddle of water. So to me, summer means coasters! If you’re going to make some coasters, then why not make some placemats as well? This is how my mind works. So in honor of my crazy train of thought, here is a round up of coaster and placemat crochet patterns. Here are the names and links of each pattern, along with a little something that each designer has to say about them.
