Just playing ...

Stopping in for a moment today to share some fun ideas.  With the temperatures getting cooler, I find comfort in getting out my hooks and yarns.  Something about this time of the year has me yearning for traditional crafts learned from my mother.  She would sew mostly, but took the time to teach me to crochet and knit.  A life long love that I now pass on to my daughter.

I've been playing with organic cottons.  These make wonderful washcloths.  So soft ... I love them!
Another set made in pastel shades which went to my friend Cheryl and of course my daughter has some too.  They are such a sweet addition to the bath.

And roses in vanilla and white.  These are small - about 1.5 inches across.  Duplicates of the rose used on my previous post.  I think a larger rose would look wonderful taking center stage on a project, don't you? (I'll have to give that try.)

Thanks for stopping by ... I enjoy your visits and hope that you do too.


  1. Your crocheted is fabulous Joanne...the tension is so even. Mine can be a little haphazard at times.
    Love the wash cloths and the roses are so pretty.
    Received my packet of goodies today and I'm so happy with it all. Yummo. Thank you.

  2. Wondeful creations ... My Mum couldn't sew, knit or crochet ... in fact she had no creative talent at all .... but she always appreciated my creative side and that was enough to inspire me ... have a lovely day
