Pretty little Laina is the 2014 addition to the Heritage Heartcraft angel choir. Worked with beautiful open lacy scallops and a little bit of tiered ruffles, she is inspired by the beautiful baby girl for whom she was named. Let Laina dress up your Christmas tree this year, or make her to be a guardian angel to watch over a special someone all year.

Heritage Heartcraft's Old Fashioned Christmas Light Ornament Pattern for thread crochet has just gotten a bit of a facelift... AND is ON SALE now and throughout the month of November!

Sometimes, one needs to look back in order to look forward. This morning is one of those times for me. I feel a little shaken today and needed to find some solid ground to stand on. So I returned to the words of my heritage when I would go to church with my family. I thought I would write out a bit of electronic calligraphy as I reminded myself of just Who is the One Who is the source of all that is seen and unseen. Nicene Creed

Reaffirming My Faith

I made a pair of slippers for ME finally! I really love this beautiful design for knit-look slippers. They are so stretchy and comfortable!

Here's a nice little bit of fun I'm working on today at Heritage Heartcraft which can be applied to numerous projects. You know all those wonderful mandala type motifs or granny square designs which look so great worked in different colors? That's because they can change colors with every round. When you want to add some color to designs where you can't change every round, try outlining certain parts with surface crochet! It looks like embroidery, but really it's just slip stitches.

1970's Throwback- The Poncho- A classic brought back for today. My mother had knitted and crocheted lots of ponchos for me and my sisters when we were little kids, and I loved mine and wore them until they were thread bare, and then wore the ones that had been my sisters’ when they got tired of them. Now I have several more for the grown-up me which I designed myself.

1970's throwback - The Poncho

Super fun slippers I just made for my husband. When he tells me how much he loves my handmade slippers, how can I turn him down when he asks? We’ve been married 26 years and I’ve made him new slippers (or at least new soles) just about every year! That’s a lot of crochet love!

Simply Spring V-Stitch Poncho, Hat, and Mitts Set pattern by Heritage Heartcraft Light, Lacy, and Super Easy! Make it in wild colors for a bit of jazz, or in neutral colors for a classic accessory set.
