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!

Crocheted bike basket

I wanted a front basket for my bike but the bike shop didn't have the matching wire one in stock (to match the back basket), and I didn't want to pay almost 100 bucks for a wicker basket, so I crocheted this cover for a dollar store container that I plan to use as a bike basket.

 I couldn't find yarn to match my pretty coral colored bike so I did the basket in a variety of colors, mixing tangerine, peach, and pink, with a bit of blue (for the tire walls), white (for the seat), and lilac (just because, lol).

 Tomorrow I'll attach the basket to the bike using shower curtain hooks; the circular kind.  I couldn't find white, so I got silver instead.  I'll pick up some white and switch them out as soon as I can, as I don't want the silver ones to rust.
