Monday Makings… A new look and lots of crochet coming you way!!

Monday Makings… A new look and lots of crochet coming you way!!

I didn’t get much crocheting accomplished..  Over the weekend I was busily working on the website making the new changes.. Many things are still the same,  but I did change the theme slightly which changed the top of the site and the boxes the posts are in… Also some of the advertising is positioned a little differently… You may wonder why I have had advertising in the past and why it will be added this time too…  Running a website isn’t free and it helps off set the cost of the website and the costs of designing and publishing my free patterns…

One of the best upgrades in my opinion,,, besides the cute theme… Is the Print Friendly button at the bottom of each post… This nice little button will make it very easy for you to print out  my patterns without all the other pieces of the website… You click on it and it takes you to a screen with the page you are wanting to print…

printfriendly Look for this button at the bottom of each page!

This is one of my favorite tools!!

Here is what you can do with Print Friendly…

1. Print

2. Make a PDF

3. Send it as an email

4. Delete the sections you don’t want to print… Very customizable!!

This is one of my favorite tools!! You will find the button at the bottom left of each post… above “Related Posts”

 

A few other changes I like….

At the bottom of each post there is a section of  “Related Posts“, This hopefully is a fun way for you to get to know me and see posts from the past you may want to read!!

In the Sidebar... I will be making some changes… one is my Twitter Feed is now in place… If you like twitter.. check it out…

Pinterest...  If you love Pinterest.. As always you can click on the button at the bottom of each post to pin one of my pictures.. But now… You can hover over the picture and you will find a Pin It button there too!!!

 

I will be fussing with the site for a bit… so please still be patient!!

 

Now on to the CROCHET!!  I have been working on a new pattern… I didn’t quit finish it this weekend as planned… Hopefully this week!!  Here is another sneak peek…

Monday Makings ~ Crochet Flower Potholder Review!

Monday Makings ~ Crochet Flower Potholder Review!

Another Monday and a little fun crochet to share!!  This weekend I decided to break out all the cotton yarn I bought a few weeks ago and get something done…  When I was trying to decide what to make,,, I remembered my friend Tamara over at Moogly had done a Potholder Round Up several months ago… I hopped over to her blog and could hardly decide which potholders I wanted to make…

Crochet-Potholders-and-Hot-Pads

 Click here to see her fun roundup…

After scouring over all the great patterns… I decided on the Starburst Hotpad by Loretta Schepp… I have been seeing these fun flowers for several weeks now and had been wanting to make some for myself… The pattern is really fun!  It is fairly easy, the only slightly tricky part was figuring out how to join them once all the motifs were crocheted… But once I got it, I whipped 3 out in not time!!  If you would like to make these fun hotpads… Click Here

Really fun and easy to make!
