lace-pillow-crochet-patternHappy Monday! Today’s Monday Inspiration is a free pattern from the website Crochet Kingdom. It is a beautiful lacy crochet pillow and can be used with any color pillow you like to peek through. This pattern is a graph pattern and not a written pattern.  Isn’t it beautiful?

What Works Wednesday

Have a little tip or hack that makes your crafting easier?   Share what works for you!

Here is mine:

hooktipI usually have a lot of crochet and other craft projects going at one time so I like to label them with important info like stitches, counts, hooks etc. so that if I set it down for a while, I won’t be lost when I pick it up again. For my knit and crochet projects, I just use masking tape and tape it to the tail.  I can’t tell you how many times I misplaced my crochet hook and couldn’t remember what size it was when I picked up my project again.

That is what works for me, what works for you?  Share a link if you like!
