Two Tuesday

Two Things I'm Grateful For

1. Time alone. I love homeschooling, but that means I'm with my daughter, Hope, almost all the time. She started babysitting the little neighbor girl a couple of weeks agos for a couple of hours a day.  Those two hours are my quiet me time. I play on the computer, watch TV, crochet, whatever I want, as long as it's not housework. It's peaceful and quiet :-)

2. Free crochet patterns. I have no problem buying patterns and respect those who have them for sale. Everyone has to make a living. But I especially love finding free patterns on the web. A big thank you to all those pattern designers out there who share their creations with the rest of us. 

Two Patterns I Think are Neat

I'm an owl fanatic, so in case there are any more out there, here are a couple of cute owls you could whip up in time for Christmas.
This adorable purse pattern can be found on Mama G's Big Crafty Blog.
The pattern for these cute little guys can be found on Hopscotch Lane.

Speaking of giving credit where credit is due, I forgot to post the links to the patterns for all the items I've been making and posting pictures of.
Slipper sock pattern can be found here.
Pot holder pattern can be found here.
Monkey cozy pattern can be found here.
Yo Yo blanket pattern can be found here.

Good luck to everyone who's entered my giveaway so far! If you haven't had a chance, you still have a few days to become a follower of my blog (if you're not already) and leave a comment on this post.

Today's Inspiration

Thanks for reading!
Blessings :-)


  1. You know i love owls too. I saw that pattern and I don't think I will be getting to it anytime soon. Id love to see you try it:) Yes it is a blessing to homeschool our children. Although at times I want to rip my hair out lol. To make sugar cookies go to karencookies.net she is awesome. Right on the top has all her tutorials on frosting and baking. She also sells cutters,everything you need to bake. I am her big customer there. Thank you for the website for a star. I will try this tonite and let you know how I do. I am still a beginner but im determine to make this blanket look good.

    1. I'm looking forward to making them, too! As soon as I'm done with all my Christmas projects.
      A blessing to homeschool, yes. Do I have more gray hairs now? Yes!
      Thanks for the recipe link. And good luck with your blanket; I know you can do it!
