A crafty post

I realized I haven’t written a crafty type post in a while, so here it is. 🙂

I was working on my current cross stitch project but I’ve had to stop for a bit. I’ve ran into a bit of a problem with the thread that came with it. So until I get things worked out the way I want, I’m putting my cross stitch aside for a while. But what do you think of it so far?


I really don’t mind putting it down for a while, because the crocheting bug has bit me. 😀 I found a cute pillow I wanted to try, and I think I found colors that will go good with it. I guess we’ll see when I’m done. I’ve never crocheted a pillow before, but so far I’m enjoying how this one is going together. It’s very easy.



I know I’m not far, but I wanted to share it with you anyway. 😉

Since I was taking pictures, I thought I would show you what is currently in my yarn bag.


Different yarns for different projects. I think right now I’ll stick with the pillow, but I also have the yarn I’m using to make the granny squares for an afghan. I’m using the purple yarn too for granny squares.

So that’s what I’ve been up to lately in the crafts department. What crafts are you currently working on? I would love to hear from you.

  1. love the look of the pillow pattern. I’ll have to get that. I will get that thread to you soon but glad you have something to work on till then. I’ve never crocheted a pillow. good for you. Good beginning of it. Love

  2. Inspiring! Wish I had time to get back into crocheting; I find it so relaxing. Maybe once the snow flies! You’ll have to post a picture of your pillow when it’s done.

  3. Love your cross stitch piece! I can’t wait to see the inished product. Post more of your crocheting too. I wish there was more time in the day so I could learn to crochet…I know the very basics (how to make a chain), but I can’t read a pattern. Another reason why I wish we all lived closer together.

  4. That looks like a good stitch for a pillow. I knit one once, but the stitch was too loose and it lost it’s form. A bit lumpy. But it was for my daughter and just scraps while I was teaching a knitting class.

  5. Well, you know me and I am not so crafty, so nothing to report on that front. I love all the yarn you have. It looks so promising. I wish you well with your projects and look forward to seeing them completed.

  6. Oh, I love the colors of your yarn basket. And the embroidery is very cheerful.

    I used to crochet all the time, especially doilies and fillet crochet panels. (That may be a Dutch thing). Someday I hope to finish a 1 meter table doily I was making out of super-thin thread, and the two embroideries that are still waiting for me….

    In the meantime, I enjoy ‘crafting’ with words. 🙂

  7. Hi JoAnn, your cross stitch is very pretty, I like the saying. Looks like you are having fun with your crochet work too. I haven’t been on here too much lately, but looking forward to catching up with everyone. We’ll be starting school in a couple of weeks and to be honest, I’m looking forward to it and getting back into our routine. Take care. Heather

  8. Love the cross-stitch, JoAnn! I can’t wait to see it finished! You’re making me itch to ditch unpacking and cleaning and laundry and park myself with my yarn and hooks…. must resist! lol I’m going to set a time limit, though… give myself a full-on work load until 2p., then I’m hopping in the shower and devoting time to YARN – yay! 🙂 Looking forward to seeing your pillow finished, too. Good for you! 🙂
