My Neon Colored Pincushions are finished, it’s over and scratched off finally, now I can concentrate on my scarf

I worked on them all week and kept changing my mind but I believe I have achieved what I wanted: practical, recycled and I hope cute looking :-)

The base for both pincushions is stuff I did not want to throw out,  so I held on to them until I had the idea for pincushions.

The threads are nice and neon colored so it will brighten any craft corner and they are nice to work with.


All in all I believe I spent too much time on them but I am happy with the outcome.


I am hoping to start posting more often now that these miniatures are out-of-the-way :-)

Have a very creative weekend Artisans!!!



Who said that micro crochet is fast? No one!

Well apart from changing my mind ten times,  my day project  has turned out to be NOT a day project, it is still under construction but very close to the finish line.

Nobody has guessed what it is going to be….


The MTB blanket broke one of my favorite plastic hook,  and that is never a  good feeling.

I love plastic hooks because they are light weight and they glide on yarn but they are too fragile for heavy-duty yarns, please remember to keep that in mind when you are starting a double strand acrylic yarn project.


I think if we could get a company to put in a core of steel and then cover it with plastic,  we would  have a super durable “perfect” hook.

My Faux SD scarf  has not been started, I wanted to get the smaller project out-of-the-way, but well, you know the story… hopefully by tomorrow I can show you progress…

So, today is set out to be a very productive day. Let me go now, but don’t forget to Have a Very Terrific Tuesday!!!



I need to start on something new, too much of MTB is sapping my creative juices.

I did not have to buy new yarn I just went into my stash and discovered that I had not touched some threads I won last year from Red Heart. These threads have gorgeous neon colors, perfect for a bright happy project.

When, I finish that project I am going to start on my Faux SD Scarf, I cannot wait anymore :-)

Monday morning updates will be exciting, I’m wired….

What are you working on today?

Take a peek at my threads and yarns and my tiny hooks, can you guess which two projects I will be working on?

 Hints: you already  know the name of the project for the yarns at the top left. The  threads from the bottom right is for a project that is useful and practical for a lot of Artisans, so, what am I making with the cute  threads?

Have a fun and happy Saturday Artisans!!



So, I’m working on MTB every chance I get, he needs to be crossed off like yesterday, because I want to start my Faux SD scarf today, goodness what is taking so long :-)

This has nothing to do with crochet but I think you will enjoy this video, I was speechless ..

Have a blessed Wednesday day!!! Stay inspired!!!


Blizzard conditions up north and rainy days down south means just one thing for us artisans: more crafting time,  yay!!!

My plans are simple:  work on MTB until I can cross him off my FO List, and then start on my Faux Sophie Digard Scarf.

What are your plans? are you staying in? are you finishing projects, sleeping? relaxing? please stay safe okay?

Well this is all for now I don’t want to keep you from your work, enjoy your weekend!
