I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Handcrafted Christmas Stocking

As you can see I have been busy with Christmas items already. You need to get a good head start otherwise the Holidays will be upon you before you know it. This Stocking is made with Red Heart Yarn and is adorned with river pearls. What I like about making this stocking is that it has given me a window into making socks. It is not hard, but it is not that easy either. I have the yarn for socks and the hooks, let's see when I start making my own socks. LOL.

I have been working on my quilting techniques and it is a learning experience. Getting to know your sewing machine is paramount if you want to be successful in aiding yourself in your quilting experience. Some things may have to be done by hand , because your machine can not handle it's thickness.

Thanks for stopping by and come back again.
