I used to really enjoy making quilts, and it is one of those things that I just haven't done for a long time. Not that I don't still enjoy it, it has just been a while since I made a quilt. Probably my least favorite part of making a quilt is cutting out the pieces. Either that or binding. I love piecing the quilt though, seeing all of the small squares, triangles, and rectangles coming together to create a beautiful design.

Kindness Collection Design #6, Only a couple of designs left. The first couple of shirts I shared I made for myself or for my husband, these last several I made for my girls, but really any of them could work for any age or size.

I few months ago I had the opportunity to try out some yarn from Manos del Uruguay. In that post I shared a bit about my connection with Uruguay and why I was so excited to work with this company. When I was given the chance to try out some more of their yarn I jumped at the chance.

Last week I wrote a post all about the Cricut EasyPress 2 and all of the different kinds of iron on you can get, when, and how to use them. Today I am sharing a quick project made with several different types of iron on.

Burly Spun Bolster Pillow

Although worsted weight yarn is kind of my go-to yarn, it is always kind of fun to work with thicker yarn. Projects work up much quicker than thinner yarns, and they are nice and thick and cozy. For today's project I was sent some bulky Burly Spun yarn from Brown Sheep Company.

Choose Kindness T-Shirt



This is the 4th design in my kindness collection of t-shirt designs, and the first one that says something other than "Be Kind". For this design I chose the phrase "choose kindness".

Corner to corner to corner crochet is a really neat way to make graph designs in crochet. It can seem a  little tricky at first but once you get the hang of it it is really quick and easy. I have seen some pretty amazing graphs that people have crocheted but this project is made with a pretty simple design and only 2 colors.

If you have followed my blog for a while you probably know that I love creating with my Cricut. I have a Cricut Maker and I use it all the time. I also love to crochet but crocheting tends to take a quite a while to finish a project.  One of the things that I love about creating with my Cricut is that I can usually make a project start to finish in a very short time. For this reason one of my favorite materials to work with is iron on. I love how quickly I can make projects. For example, just a couple days ago my daughter brought me a plain sweatshirt, explained what she wanted on it, picked out the colors she wanted, and  a few minutes later had a new shirt ready to wear the next day. The longest part was probably creating the design because we were starting from scratch, and even that didn't take very long.

I have been sharing my "be kind" designs each week for a couple of weeks now and I missed last week. Just about everyone in my family got really sick and it was one of those times that I just had to step away from the blog to focus on my family. As a result I wasn't able to get last week's post up, but I am getting back on track this week.
