Simply Beautiful.

Every day we are faced with the choice- how can I make life better today? What can I say, do, make, give or be to make my life and the lives of others better. Here I want to focus on the positives of life in each day, in each moment. By choosing how we answer those questions in a positive way, we make the world a better place for every single one.

I am trying a new format starting today. I will be posting Studio project and shop updates on Mondays. Each Wednesday I will post a "World Wednesday" update with things found in nature, or other nature related topics. On Fridays I will post a tip or project I suggest. Hopefully it will be a fun and exciting change!

Crochet Tip

I've been working on a crochet project for a few days now that has had a few quirks!  Okay- I have had a few quirks!!  I have made three versions of the same hood for this project.  Now I'm starting on number four.  Instead of "frogging" or ripping out the entire last one- "hood the third" I shall call it, I came up with an easier way.  Pulling apart the yarn and working it back into wrapped skeins or balls usually leads to tangling and struggling on my part. So my project tip is to not undue the most recent mistake but to work from it as if it's your skein.  This works really well!

Here you'll see the new project on the right, with a line of yarn heading to the old on the left:

Of course being able to have a fun game of Cooties while I'm crocheting is also nice!
