The Amazing Grace Free Crochet Pattern Series is dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness and my dearest friend Sandra Kay Gilb.  Sandra passed away in 2007  from Breast Cancer.  This was a devastating loss and spurred my passion for Breast Cancer Awareness!  At the age of 43 Sandra was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, the same disease that took her mother’s life many years earlier and claimed Sandra’s life in less than 2 years.  Each Amazing Grace Pattern is designed to comfort cancer patients as they are treated and recovering from this or any disease!!  Please pay it forward by donating items made from these patterns to help someone afflicted by this disease.

 

I hope you also enjoy making them for yourselves, for gifts and spreading the word about Breast Cancer Awareness by sending other crocheter’s to my site to build Awareness and a Charitable Community!

Happy Crocheting!!

Holiday Weekend Crochet…

.

This weekend was a little quieter than most… I had the house to myself for the majority of Saturday and Sunday… So, how would I spend it… Crocheting of course (and some gardening)!  I couldn’t wait to dig in to some new projects…

.

My crochet work will be  featured at Alpine Originals for June’s Artwalk the fourth Friday of June…  So, I am building up a large variety of crochet items for everyone to enjoy.  I’m hoping to show crochet as more than just Afghans and Doilies… Over the next month I will be showing it off here too!  I will also be making my “Annual” Flag Rugs and Flag Potholders… They are always popular and each year I make one Flag Rug to sell… This year I may make two being that I am featured right before The Fourth of July…  Stay tuned for pictures of these Rugs…

.

Here is what I whipped up this weekend…  Whew!

.

This cute hat is based on Karla Rae’s pattern for her Big Girl Bonnet on Ravelry. I made a few changes to the bill and used a smaller hook than recommended… Great pattern!

.

wpid-IMG_20130527_091539_682.jpg  wpid-IMG_20130527_091254_186.jpg

These Spiral Potholders are adapted from Barbara Langer’s Spiral Coaster/Potholder Pattern on Ravelry. I loosely followed her pattern and made several changes to get them just how I wanted them to turn out!  Another great Ravelry pattern!

.

wpid-IMG_20130525_141947_135.jpg

This is a great pattern by Lily/Sugar’n Cream for Mobile Phone Covers… My phone would love to sit in one of these… I closely followed their pattern,,, with only a few small adjustments…

.

I just love Ravelry… If you haven’t found it yet, check it out… It is the best Crochet  Site for all levels of crocheters!

.

Well, 14 more items on their way to Alpine Originals… Wow, that was a lot of crocheting this weekend!

.

So here is to Ravelry, Artwalks and Crocheting!
