Welcome to my blog

If you enjoy finding a lot of different outlets for your creativity, then we may just be kindred spirits.
This blog is an outlet for my interest in miniatures, crochet, plastic canvas, and many other various arts and crafts.

I also love walking, taking digital photos, and most recently, have rediscovered an old love...bike riding! I purchased an amazing new bike, a comfy Townie by Electra this summer, and have been having a grand time exploring the area as though for the first time. It's like being a kid again!

If you enjoy any of these things too, pour a cup of coffee and tea, sit down, and join me.

Take care!

Miniature crochet

crocheted pillow, afghan, placemat
I crocheted my first mini stuff (not counting Barbie stuff, which I've done in the past).  This is a lot smaller than Barbie items...it's on the 1 inch equals 1 foot scale, which is known as 1:12 (why not 1:1?).

I've got a very simple afghan, placemat, and granny square pillow, all done with crochet thread and a very small hook.  I couldn't get a picture showing the pink center of the pillow...it's too sunny here; not that I'm complaining.  The sun is lovely.

Here's the other placemat, on the kitchen table.
