• Cactus Garden Quilt Pattern

    Sometimes Crafter July 12, 2016

    I just released my latest quilt pattern last night: Cactus Garden.  All those little crown points reminded me of succulents and cactus spikes, and bringing them all together seemed like a garden of cacti.  I actually had this about 3/4 of the way done and then set it aside and forgot about it.  So here it is, two years later and I finally finished it up.  I still love the colors and design as much as when I started it.

  • HST Tote Bag Pattern

    Sometimes Crafter June 6, 2016

    Over the winter I taught several sessions of my tote bag class.  It was such a hit that I decided i’d make the pattern available for purchase.  I really love this bag and have made it so many times over the years.  It goes together quickly and effortlessly.  I use mine for shopping and holding knitting projects and the size has always been just perfect for anything I need to go in there.  One of things I love most about…

  • Freezing Rain Table Runner Pattern

    Sometimes Crafter February 28, 2013

    Finally!  It’s time to release the Freezing Rain Table Runner pattern.  I originally designed this to be a quilt, in different colors than you see here.  The original quilt design is called Liquid Sunshine and I hope to get that completed after the quilt pattern that is coming up next.  Lupin at Modern Domestic asked if we could turn the idea into a table runner for the holidays and specifically asked for these colors as kind of a modern, winter…

  • The Knitting Bag – A Closer Look

    Sometimes Crafter July 29, 2011

    I have been patiently waiting for Three Kitchen Fairies blog-aversary to tell you a little more about Amanda’s Knitting Bag so I would have a reason to link to her awesome giveaway (one of the prizes is a copy of the pattern).  The idea for this bag originally came about because of my friend Amanda’s birthday.  I wanted to make her something and I had this great stitching of the Octo-bunny from Badbird’s website and had to think of a…
