I have discovered "dryer felting" and I am hooked! These pieces were felted in a top-loading washing machine. Read the blog post to find out how to felt in the dryer.
With at least three ways to felt crochet and knit projects described in this post, what's stopping you?

It's not just about working; it's about INSPIRED action, not action you logically think you HAVE to do to get what you want to manifest. Amazing story Anja! Thanks for sharing.
Image Source: Deviant Art This is my personal miracle story about how I began to use the Law of Attraction (LOA). And I was successful from the start. It was an amazing experience and I am so happy to share this with you! Why...

Finished this crochet photo pattern piece last night. I'm going to make it into a pillow and give it to her owner as a Christmas gift.

Trying to get inspired to crochet (and write), but it's been hard going. Hopefully, juices are simmering beneath the surface, and I'll be crocheting (and writing) like gang busters soon.
I'm in a crochet slump, and I can't seem to pull myself out of it. What should I do?

Hey +Karen Ultis , great advice! I've been feeling that something new is on the horizon, but not sure what. Not knowing is probably what's making me feel "unproductive." But as you say, a sabbatical is probably what I need right now. The cat says it all, doesn't she? :-)

I get a lot of questions from customers who are new to crocheting my photo patterns. As a result, I've decided to create an online course that teaches you how to crochet these patterns. 

You'll learn how to:

- Choose the right photo for your piece
- Understand the crochet photo pattern format
- Follow pattern instructions accurately
- Change colors
- Add borders as you crochet?

The course will included detailed instructions, as well as videos, photos, and handouts.  AND students will receive a free, gray scale photo pattern made from a photo of their choice, a $25 value!

Let me know in the comments section below how much you would be willing to pay for a course like this. Your input will go along way in helping me establish a fair price for this course. Thanks in advance!
