Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Week 4

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…setting aside one night a week to relax, wind down and work on a project has been so enjoyable for me.wr1759BabyBooties For the first 3 weeks I’ve been able to make things I wanted to keep to use for my home. Like so many of you, most of what I make I end up giving as gifts so I rarely keep anything, let alone plan on making something for myself. Last week I began working on Crochet Natural Stripes Rug for the patio. I’m almost finished with it  and have my next project ready to go. We are now on Week 4, and I’m back to making a gift project, but this is a fun one. I am helping with a baby shower coming up in June and I wanted to do something fun for the table. I’ll be working on Baby Boots. The plan is to make about 10 sets of different colors and place them all together on the table. Then the mother to be will get to keep all of them.  Continue reading “Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Week 4”

Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Week 3

medium_wr1739_0 I have to admit, setting aside one night a week to work on a project has been so much fun and productive for me. It’s helped me to stay focused on one project until it’s finished.  I’ve completed Granny Ottoman Cover, Lacy Accent Doily, and for week 3 I’m going to work on Crochet Natural Stripes Rug for the patio. As with many things I stitch when following a pattern, I’m changing the colors and the yarn, adding my own touch. I’m going to use a combination of Super Saver colors, going with a larger hook, and maybe 3 strands of yarn. I have lots of yarn stashed in my *craft room*, so it’s time for a clean out! Now I can make room for more yarn (as if I really need more yarn), but I never can have enough! Don’t tell me I’m alone here, I know you probably have yarn stashed everywhere too.

Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge

 

We are all so busy with our jobs, families and day to day lives, many of us don’t have enough down time…I’m one of those people. I have given myself one night a week to sit, rest, listen to some music, watch TV and stitch. Wednesday is a great day…it’s the middle of the week and American Idol is on (a popular show in my house). I get to listen to great music while watching TV and stitching all at the same time! I’m one of those people who can’t sit for any length of time without having something in my hands. I’ll bet I’m not alone, am I? Continue reading “Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge”

Sampler Throw Crochet Along Follow-Up

We’ve been working on our Sampler Throw Crochet Along for the past 5 weeks, posting a different block each week. How-To video’s on YouTube for each of the five blocks are now posted, as well as a video with a few tips on sewing your blocks together. We haven’t set a deadline or completion date on this project, so everyone could work at their own pace. We continue to have more and more joining us each day, so grab your hooks and yarn and let’s keep stitching. You can use any Red Heart yarn and colors of your choice. I have selected 10 different colors of Eco-Ways yarns for my throw, and am making it large enough to cover the bed, so I’ll be working on mine a while longer.

Red Heart’s Crochet Along Update

We unfortunately have run into some issues with the Sampler Throw pattern that we are using for the Crochet Along, and are going to delay the start of the Crochet Along until next Monday, February 14th. We want to make sure all the corrections are posted on our website before we begin, so we don’t confuse you from the get go. We at Red Heart apologize for the delay, but we hope you will join us next week to start the Crochet Along of the Sampler Throw! Thank you for your patience.
