Interesting Site

photo/design from here

I've wanted to learn how to crochet off of charts for some time now. I was going to take an online class but it's $75 and I just can't justify spending the money on myself right now. This site was mentioned in one of the crochet groups I follow on Facebook and I thought I would share it with you. The charts are for cross-stitch but you can also use them for crochet too. There is also the ability to take your own picture and make a chart for it too. Check it out. I'm hoping to see some examples of this type of crocheting in the future. Have a fun weekend folks!

Photo a Day for June 9th

Today's topic for photo-a-day in June is "Your View Today." I love my backyard, sometimes it's like a garden/wildlife preserve. Today, I wasn't able to get a snap of  the wildlife with the exception of a robin in a tree. I ended up making my photo a collage of some of the spots in my backyard--flowers, chives starting to sprout in a pot, garden and the robin I've already mentioned. I just noticed the "orbs" in my garden picture--does that mean there are spirits floating around my veggies?? lol :)

Have a great weekend folks!

Found a Crochet-A-Long for the Dogs!

Sara over at Posh Pooch Designs is having a crochet-a-long. Participants will receive the instructions for crocheting a cute hat for their canine baby via email. After crocheting the hat, you should post pictures of it on Sara's Facebook page. It sounds like great fun so I thought I'd let you know about it too.  Here's the link for it.
