Floral Table Runner Status Update


Picture edited on PicMonkey
As mentioned last month, my current crochet project is a floral filet crochet table runner inspired by a chart I found on Pinterest. You can see the side-by-side comparison of the chart and my crochet. As you can see, I'm about halfway done with the table runner. I am so pleased with the results thus far. The only thing left is to crochet the other end and join the two ends together.

I've also thought about using this chart to make window hangings. Hmmm..... The ideas are limitless!

Currently my project is about 2 feet long and 19 inches wide. My last update stated the table runner would end up being about 10 feet long.  Yea, I'm thinking my calculations were a bit off. Hmmm.....

My results took me about a month, so in another month I'll have my table runner. In the progress picture, the background is my dining room table. Based on what I see so far, the final results is going to look gorgeous!

What are your working on? Want to give this project a try? Check out my first post on this project to get the chain stitch count and get started.

Crochet Therapy


I'm still working on my current project and should have an update on that soon. In the mean time, I thought I would share some crochet funnies. If you're like me, crocheting is a stress relieving hobby that also serves as a form of therapy. These funnies follows the theme of crochet therapy.

Yarn is cheaper than therapy! I truly believe this, since crochet is my form of therapy.

Spring crafting fever!

After the harsh winter, it is hopefully warming up in your area and giving you a case of spring fever! If you have the spring crafting fever check out my Pinterest board to give you some ideas. If you haven't been bitten by the spring crafting bug yet, maybe checking out our board will give you some inspiration and motivation to start something new. I keep adding to it as I come across projects I would like to do some day.

I have not personally done all of these projects (there are so many!), so I would love to hear any feedback on any of these you try.
