Christmas in July is such a fun summer tradition! I’m up for any reason to have a good time, but for crafters is means so much more. It gives us a chance to get ready for Christmas with plenty of time to spare. Last year I designed a fun blanket for Red Heart. I even made some videos to help you create the blanket!

Knitting Love Link Party 9

Hello! Welcome to the May Knit Link Love Party #9, hosted by Marie Segares and I. Last month we had socks, teddy bears, and scarves, oh my! We even had a tie for 5th place, so there are 6 links in this months most clicked list. I’m seeing fall colors come out, which is about right for crafting; after all Pantone just announced the 2016 fall colors and I see a lot of them in this collection of lovely knits.

Be sure to share this link party with all your knitting friends so they can link up as well, and find new and fun knit projects around the web. Our link parties start on the first Thursday of the month, and end on the last Thursday of the month. Here are the 5 most clicked links from last month. (more…)

Rawr!!!!!! Dinosaurs are so much fun for the littles! Really, I’ve never met a kid who didn’t love dinos. They are huge and fascinating and they ruled the world for a very, very, very long time!! We have enough dinosaur books in this house to get any budding paleontologist well on the way to success. So it seemed to me that a dinosaur round up would be a great idea.

Re~Tee upcycled tee shirt with crochet tutorial from Jessie At Home

Re~Tee Kids Dress
Crochet Tutorial
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

This tutorial will help you to create a fun kids dress from an adult sized tee shirt. It even includes suggestions on how to make some accessories to go with it! This really is a tutorial more than a pattern, but if you follow along, you should be able to make your own version in a variety of sizes. You could even make an adult size if you can find a tee shirt large enough!

Hello my blogland friends! How was your weekend? We had a lot of fun over here. I’ve been working a lot, but this weekend I did find some time to play with the kiddos. Here is a little about what we did and some photos of the fun!
