Rainbow Dash Baby Blanket

What a gorgeous blanket (see link below)! I cannot wait to make one of these! I have all kinds of colors running through my head! My daughter would love it in black, pink and white! The stitch is a great stitch too in making blankets for male or female!

What colors would you use?

Family, Beach and Crochet time…

So we went to Jacksonville, FL to see some family. Great Grandmother Gladys (hubby’s gma), Grandpa Starr, Uncle Doug, 2 great Aunts and their husbands. We had a very nice visit with them, but also got to spend a little time on the beach. Isabelle loved it; Colton not so much! It was a great visit, albeit too short. And of course I got in a little crochet time during the 5-6 hour drive there! We also found a Whataburger (which I have never seen other than in a movie), so we got lunch there on the way home Sunday! They were really good too!!

Staying cool inside with crochet!

I live in Georgia. That means it is HOT and HUMID! You walk out the door and instantly need another shower! It can also be too hot to crochet during the summer in GA, but that is why I like smaller projects to work on and keep myself sane. And I need that with 4 children at any given time, a husband (whom I adore) and a chihuahua who thinks I gave birth to him! So today I thought I would share a few projects I have done lately that are on the smaller scale, but also fun!


This is the Princess Cozy (think Elsa from Frozen). It works up quickly, and you can use any colors you like to make any princess. This wonderful pattern is from an awesome designer MistyMakes. (Click picture for her FB page.)


This is a cute American Girl inspired skirt designed by a Ravelry friend. You can make it long or short, and the design even has directions for adding beads to the ruffles. Click on picture to take you to Pat’s Ravelry page.

Until next time Friends!

Crochet on…..
