Battle of the Stitches!


There is a Battle of the Stitches a Brewing! Some of my favorite crochet designers, we well as others, (10 total) are going head to head using the same stitch to design something new. The theme of “Mother’s Day” is the focus. They will only have 2 weeks to come up with an exciting new design that will be included in a special issue of Too Yarn Cute EMag. Click on the picture above to check out which designers are participating, and who the judges are as well as prizes. So much fun to be had!!

Until next time,

Love Skulls? Crochet Skulls?

I love crocheting! It has become a great stress reliever as well as a great past time. I love to make items for friends and family, but I also love to test patterns for designers! One of my favorite designers is Ann at Glamour-4-You. She has so many wonderful designs and many incorporate skulls. I have had the pleasure of testing all of her skull patterns. The latest being her skull slippers for the whole family! Here are the ones I made for my 7 yo daughter and my 9month old son. They are adorable!!! You can find the pattern(s) on her website linked above.





Happy New Year 2014 – new beginnings and of course some crochet!!

Ringing out the old of 2013 was so much nicer than ringing out 2012. 2012 was pretty rough as was the first half of 2013. The best thing of course was having my Littlest Boo Colton in May (even if he did put me on bed-rest at the hospital for 4-5 weeks!)
Gratuitous picture of my gorgeous Little Man:

2014 has gone quite well so far! We found a house we have moved into and left what we felt was becoming the hood! My kids will still be in there same schools, so very minor changes for them. We’re in an older established neighborhood which gives a sense of contentment. Sounds weird I know, but kind of reminds me of the neighborhoods I lived in as a kid.

My husbands job is going very well! He loves it and they seem to love him! We actually went to a real Christmas party this year! Fun!! Night out without children! That’s hard to do with a baby and a 7 year old. Thank goodness the teenagers are easy!

I’ve also been crocheting when I get a chance. I have made a few items here and there. Mostly tests for pattern designers, and a couple of custom orders for customers. I know you want to see some pictures!! I also have them listed in my store for StarrCreations. Just click the link!

I love testing patterns!

I was able to test this really cute Tardis Dr. Who slouch beanie for Misty Makes. I love how it turned out and my daughter rocked it! Blue mouth and all (from a blue lollipop). The pattern will be available soon from her site.




Cute slippers for my daughter…

Oma Slippers (pattern by Mamachee)

These cute slippers were easy to make and the keep little feet warm on chilly days. I added a jute sole to the bottom so that she is able to walk outside with them on. The jute also helps to make the slipper less slippery!
