Woven Crochet – A new technique tutorial and introduction.
What’s Woven Crochet? Well, it came to me in a dream last month, so I had to give it a go. I don’t know if the dream was a way of bringing up an old memory, or if it’s something new. Either way, I woke up and just had to try.

Flower Loom Flowers Video Tutorial
I recently found myself in possession of a Boye Flower Loom. I’d never used one before, but I’ve always been fond of the pretty little flowers they create, so I thought I’d give it a go. You know what? It was really easy and the results were spectacular! I have a few ideas of what to do with some of these lovely flowers already!!
The loom came with instructions on how to use it, but I know some of you are more visual learners, so I thought I would make a video tutorial for you. I actually have 2, one that shows how to make the flower in a single color, without cutting the yarn between the flower and the center, and one that shows how to make the flower in two colors (flower and center). I hope these help you create beautiful flowers for all your upcoming floral needs!!

The boxes were full of reeds and other basketry supplies. All from a wonderful shop in Pennsylvania.
After a bit of a soak in the tub, I transferred some of the reed to a bin in the living room, next to my towel-covered coffee table. Not really sure why I tossed the handle in there, it doesn’t get shaped. There isn’t always a good reason for many of the things I do…
