This week, I’ve been recovering from a cold. I’ve mostly just been cuddling with my sweet cats, crocheting and watching some of my favorite shows (Criminal Minds, Major Crimes, Bones, The Closer, NCIS). I’ve been wanting to work on video tutorials, but with the congestion voice plus sniffling, I’ve decided to wait it out.
Now that I’m starting to feel better, I have plans to make some brownies, and work on organizing my craft room closet a bit. I’ve been working on boxing everything up so I can pull out some shelves I have in there to gain a little more space, and I’m so ready to finish up this project, and get all of the totes put into the closet, and out of the rest of my home.
In case you missed last week’s edition of The Rockwood Lane Weekly 20. Thank you to Maggie of Crochet Happens for helping out with the photo collage! Check out her Etsy Shop for some great handmade items, like these adorable little Double Layer Twisted Knit Earwarmers.
Let’s Get to Those Great Finds!
On my sister blog, EyeLoveKnots, Abby of A Stitch Shy of Normal has shared a crochet pattern review for a super cute and trendy Juniper Festival Crossbody Bum Bag. I love the bright and cheerful colors she picked for her flowers.
I love this French Lavender Vignette Printable from The Cottage Market. The little detail of the painted drawer (my favorite color!) and handle, the little bee, the spots on the metal pitcher – love it all! This free printable comes in two sizes too!
These Heart Shaped Sheep from GoldenLucyCrafts are the sweetest! Work in different weigh yarns to change up the size of these appliques. I think they would be so cute on a baby blanket, or on an art piece either in the form of canvas or throw pillow with a grassy background, or what about on a banner for a baby shower?!
I second that this beautiful blouse and headband on Laura of I do deClaire are definitely Mint to Be.
On my sister blog, Cre8tion Crochet, Maggie of Crochet Happens shared a crochet pattern review for the sweetest little Bitty Boho Bag. She also includes a photo tutorial showing how to add a fabric lining.
Spring is just days away! This DIY Birdhouse Card from Kittie of Kittie Kraft would be a great way to celebrate.
Cyndi shares 6 Early Spring Outfits, and I really like this V-neck, long sleeve blouse. There are 31 print/color options in both short and long sleeve.
Have you ever had Carrot Cake Cinnamon Rolls before? I haven’t, but after seeing these from Chelsweets, I must! Along with this recipe are lots of details to help make them.
Jeans are my comfort zone – I wear them every.single.day! Audrey of Putting Me Together shares How to Style Different Cuts for Spring (That Aren’t Skinnies). While Skinnies are more my go-to these days, I recently bought some Bootcut from Old Navy, and I am so in love with the more fitted top section, and slight flare in the legs!
On my sister blog, EyeLoveKnots, Abby of A Stitch Shy of Normal has shared a crochet pattern review for a Cute Cupcake Mug Rug. I love the idea of having different types of cupcakes for different times of the year.
