Button It Up Pillow

Just released the pattern for this pillow.  The finished size is 12 1/2" square and is worked in size 10 crochet threads.  It also has front post treble stitches for added texture which gives it a neat look that doesn't show up in the picture.  It is also reversible and is the same on both sides.  One side can be made and used as a doily as well.  The buttons in the middle pull the pillow in some for more dimension.  You can get your pattern and give it a try in my Etsy, Ravelry and Craftsy stores.  Have fun!!

By the Seashore Scarf

The June issue of Crochet World came out this week and I received a package in the mail the other day with the scarf back and a complilmentary copy of the magazine.  This was an unusual thread/yarn for me to work with it is made in Plymouth Yarn Nettle Grove fine weight cotton/linen/silk/nettle yarn. It is worked with a size 3/2.10mm steel crochet hook. 
As always they did a beautiful job of photographing and styling the scarf!!

You can get your copy at any news stand or craft store to make one for yourself or even a download at  It is an easy repeat pattern and very versatile it could even be made into a table runner or place mat. Different colors in each row, or more or less rows, fill in the open areas with more motifs.... the possibilities are endless!!
