Tassel Me a Knot Please

posted Dec 7, 2012, 1:52 PM by M. J. Joachim

It's been a busy day, with very little going as I expected. Not a bad thing, just moving from thing to thing and letting things happen as they will. 

Both of today's posts (1 on the blog and 1 under Crochet Patterns and Projects here) are easy and fun to make. Take a look and see if either or both strike your fancy :)

Happy Friday, kind visitors! Until next time, I wish you every good thing :)

Tis the Season for Stars and Snowflakes

posted Dec 6, 2012, 9:19 AM by M. J. Joachim   [ updated Dec 6, 2012, 9:20 AM ]

Season's greetings, kind visitors. Let it snow and wish upon a star...oh, and defrost the fridge, hang the lights, put up the tree, blast the Christmas music, jingle the bells etc. etc. etc. 
We're all fairly busy, I'm sure. That's why I think you'll truly enjoy these next 5 patterns; I added them to the site yesterday and today. They're quick, easy and would make delightful gifts and ornaments :)

Star Crochet Pattern 120512A This is a little one, but you could put a miniature picture of your pet in the center, to make a lovely ornament. 

Star Crochet Pattern 120512B  Placing this one in front of one of those colorful lights on your Christmas tree would be a lovely idea. 

Star Crochet Pattern 120512C  Hang gazillions of these from the curtains, on the bathroom mirror and all over the house :)

Star Crochet Pattern 120512D  Truly a star picture frame that can be turned into an ornament, magnet or package trim.

Thanks for visiting Lots of Crochet Stitches! I'll look forward to seeing you again real soon :)

New Stitch Pattern from 12/4/12

posted Dec 5, 2012, 7:02 AM by M. J. Joachim   [ updated Dec 5, 2012, 7:03 AM ]

It's bright, early and a beautiful day here. I hope yours is as nice. Site updates include 3 new patterns listed under the Creative Crochet Stitch Patterns tab. 

Unfortunately, the gadgets I usually add to my pages are unavailable at present. I'll keep checking back, so I can add them as soon as possible. I'm not a very technical person at all. Click/drag is so much more my speed. However, I'm finding myself working somewhere in the middle, between click/drag and HTML, to get the desired results I want. Learning curves are all the rage, and highly over-rated in a tech savvy culture like ours, if you ask me. 

Anyway, I do hope you'll check out the new stitch patterns I posted. That dot stitch is quite a kick to make. The mesh pattern would look fabulous with ribbon woven through it and I'm picturing a fun, festive hat for the easy crochet shell pattern. 

Best of Wednesday to you! I'm off to see what other stitches I might make and add to this site. See you again soon :)

Blog and Website Updates

posted Dec 2, 2012, 2:52 PM by M. J. Joachim   [ updated Dec 2, 2012, 2:53 PM ]

It's official. The brand new, Lots of Crochet Stitches website has been launched....and now the domain name works much better too. Seems there were a few minor glitches in my mapping process yesterday, causing a few of those nasty error codes to appear, instead of bringing folks here. It's all fixed now, I'm happy to say! 

Of course, I also had to fit in some crocheting, so I made a few more pages for this site, and added an Arizona Snowflake pattern to the Lots of Crochet Stitches blog. The pages I added here today, are listed in the last part of today's blog post. I'd love it if you'd take a peak. 

And now, my good people, it's time to water my garden - before the sun goes down :) 
Wishing you a wonderful evening!
