Crochet Bag

This is the beginnings of my crochet bag. I fell in love with Lucy's bag and had to try this. She designed this pattern herself and gives very clear, easy instructions with photos. I can't wait to get it finished!
Here is the picture of her bag:
If you visit her blog, you will be amazed.

And last but not least, the bouquet of napkins.
And napkins....I wanted them all to be different. I think the lady at Pier 1 imports thought I was a nut case.
And of course I had to get plates, bowls, cups, napkins....

Bright Inspiration

One day not long ago, my daughter and I were looking for crochet patterns and happened upon some incredible blogs, some of which I intend to share once I figure out how to do this blog thing. I'm hooked! I saw beautiful creations and photography and have been anxious to set up my own blog ever since.....so here goes! My first picture is a result of a blog by Attic 24 (I will link to it when I figure out how). She has amazing projects, most of which include instructions......yesssssss! And she even includes pictures with her directions.....happy dance! I went out right away and bought a bunch of bright colored yarn and started making hexagons. Unsure of what to actually do with them once completed, I just kept making them until the idea of a table runner popped into my head. Then I had to find colorful goodies to go with it, and the rest is history!
