Happy Easter to all of you!

I love creating unique greeting cards, combing different crafts.

Once you master front and back post stitches in crochet, you can start "drawing" pictures. :)

For this Spring Twig Drawstring Bag, I used front post traveling stitches (and bobbles), one of the techniques I will be teaching next week in my "Crochet Cables" workshop at the Interweave Yarn Fest 2017.

I'm having lots of fun with crocheting beaded tubes or ropes that can be turned into necklaces, pendant bars, bracelets, brooches, or napkin rings...

Once you've pre-strung your beads in a set pattern, you can just zoom along crocheting your tube.

I'll be teaching a "Crochet with Beads" workshop next week at #InterweaveYarnFest #yarnfest17 and only a few spots are left. To register go to: http://interweaveyarnfest.com/

Our unseasonable warm weather sprouted some flower inspired round place mats using one of the tapestry crochet techniques I will be teaching at the upcoming Interweave Yarn Fest 2017.
Tapestry crochet is perfect for items where both sides are visible because there are no floats/strands of the unused color on the back side. I love it!

I am getting all giddy with the warm temperatures in Colorado and worked up some airy crochet cables. I think they are perfect for some summer projects....

Want to find out more about what's possible with crochet cables and how to work them? I will be teaching the "Crochet Cables" workshop at Interweave Yarn Fest 2017 in just a few weeks. Perhaps I will see you there?

Yay, I was able to use beads from my bead stash for this cute little crochet with beads project! 
And, if you were wondering what the pre-stringing of beads with a bead spinner in an earlier post was for: a cute little beaded crochet coin pocket or amulet bag!

Here is a little sneak peek at what I'll be showing and teaching in my upcoming "Crochet with Beads" workshop at the 2017 Interweave Yarn Fest (http://interweaveyarnfest.com/). 
Tools from other crafts, in this case beading, can come in very handy when you need to pre-string a large number of beads for your crochet work.

Here you can see me taking advantage of speed-stringing beads using a #beadspinner. It took me less than 15 minutes to pre-string over 500 tiny size 11 glass seed beads! Can't beat that time-saver! :)

See it in action and try it out for yourself in my upcoming "Crochet with Beads" workshop at Interweave Yarn Fest 2017: http://interweaveyarnfest.com/

Sometimes it's an advantage to be multi-crafted because then you learn about tools that could be useful in another craft. :)
