Catching Up, Keeping Up

Monday, March 11, 2013
I told you in my post of 2/28-The Deed is Done-about winning the 2012 prize at Bead Crochet Exchange over at Ravelry. Well, my wonderful gifts arrived and here they are. I have also downloaded my 10 pattern gifts and can't wait to go on Thursday to a bead store having a 30% off sale!  Yippee!
It's amazing how just changing the texture and size of the beads can create such elegance!


This is both a necklace & a bracelet!

I made these simple bracelets this past week. They are very plain, but so comfortable to wear. I am going to make one from my new patterns to enhance the blue one. I love wearing 2 or 3 bracelets at once!
Love these beads. It is prettier than it looks in the photo.
Plain Jane but comfy!
I've been working super hard this past week getting ready for the Crochet Country Tour here on the blog. I hope you'll be back to visit me on March 31 and will enjoy what I have in store for you. Meanwhile, enjoy the other blogs who are offering fun ways to celebrate National Crochet Month over at Crochetville:

National Crochet Month: A Fibery Celebration!

Crocheters across the nation have gotten creative in finding ways to celebrate their beloved craft during the month of March for National Crochet Month. Started originally as National Crochet Week by the Crochet Guild of America in 1997,  it has grown and grown and there is so much to celebrate that CGOA changed it to a monthlong event a few years later. Fibery people, CGOA members, and companies large and small are on the bandwagon now to draw attention to all we love about crochet!


What did you do to celebrate? I'm sure we educated many, many of the unenlightened during March ~ but calm down, Ryan...no physical violence allowed; just threaten with a crochet hook!

The Northern IL Chapter of CGOA has wrapped up its celebration  with our annual Crochet Buffet. It is always a feast for the senses and a smorgasbord for the eyes! Thank you to all the chapter members who displayed their beautiful crochet! We also filled the library showcase where we meet with crochet during the month.
