Today is going to be the final day of the Book Inspired Craft Week. I had originally planned to do 6 books, Monday-Saturday, even though last year I only did 5. I had a hard time narrowing it down to only 5 books, for that matter I had a hard time narrowing it down to only 6. I am already starting a list for next year. When I planned this year I didn't realize until it got closer that I had planned it for the same week one of my kids was having surgery. I tried to have as much as possible finished and scheduled ahead of time so I didn't have to worry about it while we were in the hospital and even at home when I was trying to focus on taking care of him.  I didn't quite get everything done ahead that I had hoped, so with as busy as this week has been at home I just decided to cut one of the projects and stick with 5 like last year.

It is Day 4 of the Book Inspired Craft Week, and today I am choosing a book from my very favorite genres when I was a kid. And this book was one of my favorites, it is called Snow Treasure.

It is Day 3 of my Book Inspired Craft Week. When I am trying to decided on books to include I try to think of books that have some significance to me or someone in my family. Books I loved as a kid, books I read to my kids when they were little, books that my kids have loved as they have gotten older, etc. The book I chose for today kind of fits in a couple of those areas.

For Day 2 of my Book Inspired Craft Week I chose a picture book that I remember my mom reading to us when I was little. Because of that this book always makes me think of her. The book I chose for today's craft is Miss Rumphius.

Last year around the beginning of March I decided to do a week of Book Inspired Crafts. I chose that time to coincide with Read Across America Week and Dr. Suess's Birthday when a lot of schools around the country are doing read-a-thons and other reading based activities. I have always loved reading and this was a fun way to combine 2 of my hobbies into one fun project. I enjoyed it so much I decided to make it an annual thing, which means it is time for the second annual Book Inspired Craft Week!

If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen me share the new embroidery kits that Missouri Star Quilt Company released this month. They sent me 2 different kits, one a learn to embroider kit, and the other more of a project kit. They are both really beautiful kits but for this project I am using the Beginner kit.

It has been a while since I have posted a dishcloth pattern and the past couple of crochet patterns that I have posted have had me thinking about dishcloth patterns, because they have used stitches that I had previously used in a dishcloth. The Mossy Blocks Scarf used the same stitch pattern as the Mossy Blocks Dishcloth from last year, and the Criss Cross Confetti Hat used the same stitch pattern as my Crossed Doubles Dishcloth
