Grannys

"So much yarn and so little time." I'm pretty sure I've said these words a thousand times before.

Since I'm always crocheting and designing new patterns, I feel like I have to take a break from counting and writing every now and then and just crochet to crochet. Granny squares are always a way to slow down, relax and use up some of that yarn stash. Because their small and portable you can always pick them up and take them with you or work on them for awhile and them put them away for a rainy day.  I store my squares in clear plastic totes along with a little note telling me what yarns and hook size I used so that when I pick them up again I'll be able to get right back to crocheting.  I've had these stored for a while and picked them up last week, now I'm in love with them again and my hook has been flying. Maybe they will be a blanket so day, or for now they could be a table runner. (of course I wouldn't use it with my Halloween decos, but you know what I mean). Oh grannys, so many possibilities.

I saw the cutest tree skirt made with granny squares last week, maybe that will be in the works soon as well.

What's New The Week of September 8th

The weather here has been beautiful and I've been crocheting up a storm. There's a new leaflet in the works and I can't wait to tell you more about it, but for now this is all I can show you. I'll be sure to give you more information as soon as I can. 


Most of you know I'm a collector and a crafter of many things. So besides crocheting this week, I've been updating my other Etsy Shops. 

If you like Vintage Smalls and Old Treasures, find me at Lovely Little Polka Dot


Looking for craft supplies, find me at Teri Loves (this little shop is brand new so items are still being added. It will be full soon, promise). 


If you recently visited my Etsy shop for a pattern, you may have noticed a new look. Still looking for those safety eyes? I'll be adding them to the shop soon so you can stop searching.

What's In The Making This Week

Besides cleaning the new loom, there are definitely some things in the making. My new kangaroo is in the testing phase and hopefully will be available soon. There is some talk about a second leaflet (shhh, not ready yet) and more huggy lovey blankets in the works. 

Grab that crochet hook, the holidays will be here before you know it (sorry, don't want to rush things, but it's true). 


New Loom At My House

I have to thank my kids for introducing me to Craig's List. I was a little hesitant at first, but I quickly sold my old furniture with only a few spam emails. Last week I went to the Midwest Folk and Fiber show and couldn't help noticing (touching and envying) all the beautiful weaving. 

Buying a new one was definitely out of the question since I already have a houseful of yarn, a wheel and table loom (paper, pens, etc). Just for kicks, I decided to check Craig's List for any looms in my area. Well darn, there it was a 40" Norwood Cherry Loom. Thought okay this is to good to be true, made arrangements to see it that day and picked it up that evening. Now, let's see if I can use it. My daughter hasn't been out of the house very long, but her room has definitely been filled. Poor kid and thank goodness for my understanding hubby.

Summer

Hope everyone is enjoying some nice Summer weather. It has been beautiful here this week. I finally got rid of the patio table and got the outdoor set I've been wanting. Love sitting outside with my coffee, yarn and crochet hooks. Think the dogs love it almost as much.

Oh Those Websites

Hope everyone is enjoying some nice weather. It's been beautiful here this week so I'm going to try not to sound grumpy. Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who lets me know when they see one of my patterns being offered or shared somewhere it isn't suppose to be. Yes, it happens (alot) and I promise I'm not going to go into a big bout of "it isn't right", "it is stealing" and so on. I just wanted to tell everyone what I've discovered about a couple of these sites (the ones I'm talking about are all international, free, sharing and forum sites, naming them could be defined as "harressing"). Anyway, everytime I have gone on these sites and registered (you have to be a member to comment, makes sense, they want to know who you are and get your information) in order to ask them to "immediately" remove my patterns and/or images my computer seems to slow down. 

Now maybe this is a coincidence, I am definitely not very computer savy, but when I run a scan, I find tracking cookies, this has happened several times, not just once so I'm pretty convinced it isn't a coincidence. Anyway, it may be nothing, but just in case I wanted to give a heads up to those out there who may be just browsing or visiting these sites for the first time, as for those who are visiting them and happily sharing or taking (I really mean stealing, oops a little grumpy), not just my patterns or images, but lots of other designers as well, maybe what goes around, does come around. Oh darn, that might have sounded grumpy again, sorry about that. Well, sort of. 

Anyway thanks for letting me vent a little and for those of you browsing the web without any bad intentions, please be careful.
