Little seams

Today I finished up three little seam areas on Block 5....

And here are the patterns... (cross stitches and straight stitches made up each of these).  


- If you are attempting to crochet in the round and have problems getting your project to life flat, there's a very helpful chart regarding increases HERE.

- Although THIS is geared towards crocheters in the link, I know knitters will find it useful too.  I'm always searching for an easy way to join yarns and this one might just work.

- I know we're coming into spring in this part of the world, but there are places that are contemplating winter, so I thought I'd give you the link to a cozy warm shawl pattern HERE.

Today your quote is from an anonymous source..."Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you; not because they are not nice but because YOU are"


  1. That quote is so true and one we should all try to live by. Love your crazy stitching on the seams, so pretty!

  2. I love that quote - I had to do just that very thing this week, hard, but I was so so glad at the end that I took the high road.
    Love your little seams and stitching, and all the inspiration!

  3. Very pretty additions! Especially love the little heart! Christine x

  4. Love the detail in the seams. Great header too.

  5. Tiny little stitches all in a row...looking lovely! We are Nice and we rise above. <3

  6. Pretty sweet yellow heart!

  7. Another wonderful quote. Sweet stitching. I must visit the link re knitting and joining yarn; it sounds very interesting....thank you, lovely Mary Anne.

  8. I love this quote; don't lower your standards. Lots of great tips for crochet projects. I liked to make that shawl for next fall/winter. I need to finish up a couple of other projects first. Have a great week!

  9. I missed this one! Very nice shawl pattern too. Thanks


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
