Sew We Crochet...are you ready to be HOOKED with inspiration...



Yes Yes Yes, I AM looking for inspiration ..... and in the Meantime, here are some Fabulous Patterns, I WAS Able to Find That Will Keep me or rather Cori and I ...  (Cori at Creativity amongst Chaos)  quite busy ....

Now she has decades of experience on me, but I will not let that get me down lol. I am quick learner ... LOOOK at what I am tackling now ... I could not for the life of me understand that pattern thing again ... so I just looked at it ... and thought "let's give it a try "this is what I have done so far ......


... I am not so good at single crochet just yet, so I did mine in double crochet and I am going to cross stitch the rose in WHITE ... that will lovely do not you think ... I am calling this a BEANITE .... no such word, but she reminds me of a beanie ... and she is feminine ...




I even had time, which I have LOTS of these days to design
our own button ....



I love these dishcloths, all kinds of delightful pattens ..

Do not you just love all that WHITE and RED, now tell me who is not inspired
by these wash or dish cloths ...?
HAND UP? ok I see a few ..lol

And this basket ... tell me who does not want a LILAC
basket, not my fav colour but I like this and I know 
there are a few who will like this ...


and this lovely throw, is is just plain delicious ...


Rugs, I want to make RUGS, especially the gingam and the wheel rug ..
well it just makes me go round and round with excitement ...


Now this is a hunk of a Crochet throw wink ...

and when I first quilted I use to add foot pockets to my quilts it just made so much sense to me ..

Well look what I found, a crochet blanket a la HUDSON BAY (well known in Canada)
for this colour sequence. and it has a foot pocket to cuddle in ... makes so much sense
for our cold winters ... I most certainly want to make this ... very simple design even 
I can figure it out without a pattern ... (yep, I may have to save bye-bye to instructions all together 
and just wing it) 


Now I am known for pocket shawls. and this one is so me ....
now this one I may have to figure out ... and I am not there yet 
but I am sure I can come up with something ... does not the colour
just make you blush? lol


And not sure I will ever make this, but I did love it ..
David is very musical, and this would look divine in his MAN cave ..


Now this one brought my spark to the top ... of course
I would want to make it in red and black ... a gingham crochet afghan ..
YEP this is perfect for me ....



I also adore this one ... just plain RED with what looks like popcorn stitches..now I am not sure
what it is called ... but I adore it ... I would want to do it all and have one WHITE heart on the bottom ... Would not that be so special ....


I am going to have to open up a yarn account somewhere, I think I am going to need a few skeins lol.


Show us some of your favourite CROCHET patterns, what will you be putting on your to do list this winter ...?


YOU so MATTER ....

I never would have done this if I was still managing 
blog hops..I never had any time ..

  6. I rarely use patterns. I just wing it. I love making infinity scarves...even though I rarely wear them 😉 Crocheting is a nice break from sewing obligations. I can't remember if I've posted on my blog. It's been a whe since I made them. I shall look and see.

  8. I can see I need to review your posts I have missed. All about crochet! I love the pocket shawl and would love to crochet one for myself and maybe my sister. You have found the most interesting patterns to whip up. Your adaptation to crochet hook and yarn is amazing...as sew is everything else you accomplish dear. Creative Crochet Bliss...

  10. I love all things crochet! I have old afghan books and Work Basket magazines and new things, too. How wonderful that you've launched this one more way to keep ourselves out of trouble. My new love is the Isaac Mizrahi cotton yarn - simply divine! So many ideas, so little time (but plenty of yarn to make them all!)

  13. Now you are completely in a crochet fever, aren't you, my dear? Wonderful afghans & co that you showed us - I am looking forward to seeing one of these finished by you. I am sure you will give a personal "Mdm Samm"-touch to each of it ;-)

  14. Your hat is going to be so sweet. Double crochet is my favorite stitch too. When ever I'm working something with a sc without thought I just start dc'ing. I then have to pull it out and redo. lol

    1. well i finished it and it is lovely, for my 2nd project and less than 2 weeks of learning crochet...I am liking it ...and the fact that I know what double crochet is is a trip lol.
      glad to know I am not alone..x

  15. I am so surprised you found crocheted gingham items---NOT! LOL Yes you would. Love your Beanite. Can't wait to see it cross stitched. Wonder if that is harder on double crochet? Haven't done it. My favorite stitch is the half double stitch. More height than single, one less step than double!
    Have taken a few pages from your book. Dropped some things that were not making me happy, started eating better, including your muffins, have picked up my crochet hook and can keep an easy eye on my grandson from the dining room table, which I can not do when I am sewing. Feel productive, healthier, and content. Contentment is a wonderful feeling. Thank you so much for all your encouragement Samm. You will never know the difference you have made. Hugs (I so hope this comment comes through...a few recently have not)

  16. I'm not seeing links to the patterns; when I click on the photos I just get a larger picture. Where can I find the patterns? Specifically looking for the pocket shawl and the piano keys. Thanks
