Happy New Year Everyone!! May this year bring us joy and creativity and money and more love and more sales πŸ™‚

I hope you are back from your Christmas break too. I had a lovely time Β in the hot and humid weather of the tropics, but I am glad I am back in the nice and cool weather of Paradise.

I enjoyed visiting with some of you lovely people and seeing all your great work, I want to pick up my hooks again and finish projects. Last year wasn’t too productive because of changes in my work schedule but I want to change that this year.

I have set goals for youΒ 2017: Β I want youΒ to take me into new areas of Crochet, like selling and teaching kids how to crochet. I want you to keep me inspired when designing, I really need you inspiration.

I want to organize my Crochet Spot, it is a huge mess now but I am working on fixing this.

Every year I like to take a look back at what I accomplished, I need Β to see if I really learned something new:

I learned new stitches like the Houndstooth Crochet Stitch, which is simple but classicΒ img_7679Β img_7680

I continued using “tall stitches” which makes any project grow faster and they are really fun to use.

When you get bored with the regular stitches please consider using the big and tall stitches. I used it here:

Lace Covered Pumpkin

The large Pumpkin needed these stitches to give it a nice detail.

I won’t mention the projects I started and have not finished, it hurts too much πŸ™‚

We had a few Road Trips aka Crochet Along but I wanted to have more, but time ran out…

Crochet is fun and can be fast or time-consuming. The more detailed the project the more time it will take. The thinner or finer the yarn/thread the longer it will take. The chunkier the yarn the faster the project will finish. I love Chunky Yarn πŸ™‚

I think I need to learn to organize my time better and plan better. I am awful at planning, I am a “Spur of the Moment” type of person but it doesn’t work very well when you are dealing with Crochet.

And…It is my pleasure to WELCOME all my new subscribers!!!Β Thanks for stopping by and saying hello πŸ™‚

You can find me on several other Social Media and If you ever have any questions let me know, I will try my very best to answer each question.

This, is all for now Lovelies, Enjoy every moment!!




  1. And a very happy new year to you too. πŸ™‚ May it be a wonderful and crafty one.
    I have not set goals, but I did decide to finish some WIP’s first before I start anything new. It is going good so far, although I am so ready to cast on something new. πŸ˜‰
    Have a great year.
