Doing the Right Thing - standing against racism by Jessie At Home - Pin 1

Starting several weeks ago various members of the Joy Creators/Stitch Ambassadors for Spinrite/Yarnspirations/Red Heart started sending emails to Spinrite asking them to take a stand against racism and make and implement an actionable plan to ensure inclusion and anti-racism in their company and in those they choose to represent them. These emails fell on deaf ears.

Crochet Hook Organizer – or paint brush organizer, Cricut tutorial

I made a crochet hook organizer with some Dress My Craft cardstock and my Cricut. Then I shared the project on Cricut Design Space. I’m posting the instructions here so you can make one of your own. This would also make a great paint brush or marker organizer. It’s actually pretty easy to put together with just a glue runner or some glue dots and some Mod Podge or glue. Add a little thin yarn or crochet thread for a decorative look and to really lock everything in place, then you’re good to go!

Winter Animals are so adorable. They’re usually so fuzzy, fluffy, furry, or feathery. In crochet they become the most cuddly little critters! A real polar bear or moose may be scary, and a penguin may skitter away when you go in for a hug. However, these crochet cuties will always want your love.

Warm necks are a necessity in the winter. If my neck is cold it feels like the cold just seeps down the rest of me. Scarves and cowls and shawls are my friends. There’s something so comforting about wrapping up in warmth in the winter. So crochet some warm neck patterns and be comfy.

Ficstitches Yarns kits say they combine two of your favorites – crochet and reading – but I say it’s three; you can’t forget getting pretties in the mail! After all, what could be more awesome then pretty crochet goodies and a good read in the mail? Maybe if they were delivered with chocolate and a hot beverage by a cute and fluffy dog. However, this is reality, so no delivery puppies.

Stick around ’til the end of this post for a chance to win a Spring 2020 kit – Giveaway ends February 9, 2020.
