Weekend Crochet and More….


The weekend was coming to a close and  looking back I actually got a lot done!  A little housekeeping… A long walk with Charlie and finished up some crochet projects… Just in time to start the next weeks list of to- do’s!


My weekend journey started off Saturday morning with a cup off coffee and of course I used one of my Twisted Stitches Coffee Cozy’s and since we are still celebrating National Crochet Month… Don’t forget to check out the FREE PATTERN by clicking on the pattern tab…

Then I got to work finishing up an adorable Sweet Pea Zig Zag Baby Blanket that I will be delivering to the shop this week… I haven’t done a Ripple Afghan for years, I must say…

I love the way this turned out, some little sweet pea will get to snuggle in very soon!

Then… I got the notice on my weather station… A large storm headed our way on Tuesday… It looked so beautiful outside today, I couldn’t resist and decided to take Charlie for a walk while the weather was nice… A snow storm coming and our little 2 mile loop won’t be much fun to walk later this week,..So we headed out…

Charlie lead the way down the road and around our loop…Of course he had to stop and show me the geese in the field… Next the big decision… Which way to go… To the  Lake or town???

Another stop along the way to check the mountain out…Then back to the house where we looked back one last time to peak at the view of the mountain from the front step…

At the last moment, a quick stop to look up at the pretty cross hanging from the tree and Charlie was all worn out! Back in the house to kick back and take it

easy for the rest of the day

While Charlie took his afternoon nap, I whipped up some Mocha Java Muffins and a cup of tea…

Then I finished of my evening by making a couple of cute Cozy Cotton Baby Beanie’s… Another sweet project to sell at Alpine Originals…

All that and it is the end of the weekend…


So here is to Weekend Crochet and More…



Love of Crochet

It just seemed fitting that today I would begin my new journey and write about my love for crochet.  When I was 10, my grandmother Beatrice Ryan Ramshaw ( A Little Irish Powerhouse) taught me her love of crocheting…. My first project was a Purple Granny Square Blanket…At 10, I think every girl loves purple!

Over the years I have made and designed hundreds of crochet projects and would love to bring some of my ideas to life for you to enjoy!  I no longer have that Purple Blanket, but soon I will be posting pictures and patterns.  I hope to leave a legacy for the art of crochet to continue for many generations.  Both of my daughters Nicole 28 and Mackenzie 16 have taken up this family hobby and I couldn’t be more thrilled!  So here is to the Love of Crochet!

I made these Heart Brooch’s and they can be found at Alpine Originals in Mt. Shasta
