This week I have been playing around with new quilt designs and I tested out a star pattern:
I forgot to iron it before I took the pic but it’s perfect 🙂
Worked for a little bit to put borders on the vintage flower quilt top which was ordered by one of my customers as a gift for a family member:
Still have to miter the borders, iron and find a backing fabric for this adorable quilt 🙂
I love the pretty fabrics used in this throw size quilt.

ASAP I will reopen my Etsy Store (Beautifulyeah) where I will start selling all my hand dyed yarns/fibers and handspun yarns.
My beautiful friend Kim Brown will start handling all the promotions for Beautifulyeah from that day on so that I can totally concentrate on the dyeing/creating side of the business.
Thank you Kim!!! You rock!!! ♥
The patterns I write are mainly to cover the cost of my blogs/time/materials/coffee and I really enjoy receiving your feedback.

“Pimped up storage Jars”
Pattern will be up by the end of the week…sorry I got a little behind 🙂
This is the original picture that goes with the pattern:
And here I made the scarf in about 3 hours of 3 balls of yarn (Red Heart Boutique Midnight & Treasure – Whisper & Spectrum), Medium weight (4) worsted weight yarn on a hook size: US F -3.75mm.
Really easy fun free pattern to remember (just one line).
I went for texture in this scarf. If I wanted more stitch definition I would have probably used a bigger size hook and a solid color (see green scarf).
Yes, one side of the scarf will be straight and the other side will be scalloped…it doesn’t bother me but it might to some of you.
Hope you join with these Crochet Alongs and send me pictures/ or
post your pictures in my Ravelry Group.

I need to “pimp up” my work/design space and of course I want it to look cute but functional too so here is the Crochet Along for January 2013.
You can join in or just watch as I will periodically post some of my new creations.
Let me know if you want me to write up a crochet pattern.
I used mason jars, the ones with the bigger opening at the top so I can store my hooks in there or my knitting needles.
Cute gifts too or you can use them to save up your coins or…
Some left over cotton yarns and a took my box with ribbons out.
And here are the results:
with a ribbon and flower
And one with just a variegated yarn and ribbon.
I will be making some more that I will be posting here.
So grab your hooks and start spicing up your jars 🙂
Love to see pictures and feel free to ask questions!!!
