Today I am excited to be sharing a new scarf pattern as part of the 2018 Scarf of the Month Club hosted by Oombawka Design and The Stitchin' Mommy. Each month they each share a new scarf pattern on their sites and have a guest designer that also shares a scarf pattern and today that guest designer is me!

Welcome Spring

-Supplies used in this project provided by Cricut and Oriental Trading Company-

Every month I join some of my blogger friends in a craft challenge. We have a theme based on a specific supply and we each make a project using that supply. Since March is National Craft Month we decided the theme for this month would be either using up supplies that you have on hand or using a craft kit. The timing was perfect for me because I have spent this past week moving around my office/craft room and cleaning and organizing all of my craft supplies. As a result I knew exactly what I had that could be used up.

I have been wanting to crochet an Easter Basket for a while, last year I even made one but finished it right before Easter and didn't have time to get it posted. So this year I wanted to make sure I got it done early enough to get it on the blog. As soon as Easter candy was out in stores I picked up some candy along with some Easter grass and plastic eggs and got to work.

Cobble Stitch Dishcloth

Today I am again joining a group of craft blogger friends to make a project based on a specific supply or material. Last month was a little challenging for me because our material was Washi Tape which I haven't really used a lot. This month was a little different, the challenge material was yarn or fiber. I use yarn all the time so this time the challenge was more of having too many projects rather than no ideas. I ended up decided to crochet a dishcloth because it has been a while since I posted a dishcloth pattern. Plus, dishcloths are a fun way to try out new stitches. For this one I used the cobble stitch, a stitch I had never used before but that gives a really great scrubby texture to the dishcloth.

Lacy Puff Stitch Hat

I have mentioned before that while working on my bead stitch hat I wanted to find some faux fur pom poms to use for it and I found some packs on Amazon that came with 12 in a pack in a variety of colors. I kind of preferred the pack that had all neutral colors, tan, gray, black, white, etc., but I didn't think I would be making that many hats and I knew my girls would love the colorful pack that included pink, purple, and blue pom poms. As soon as the girls saw them they all picked which color they wanted. I already shared the hat I made for my middle daughter using the hot pink pom pom, this time it is my oldest daughter's turn.

Charcoal Tweed Cowl

I am finally getting around to sharing the last project I made for the Darice blog. One of the things I love about crochet is combining simple stitches to create different patterns. This scarf is made by using a couple of basic stitches, double crochet and chain stitches, to create a neat pattern. 

Busy Bags

I am always looking for activities to keep my kids busy, especially when we go places where they need to be quiet. I thought it would be fun to put together some little busy bags with activities in them that would keep the kids entertained.
