I recently started taking traditional Sadu Weaving courses through the Insij program at the Sadu House in Kuwait. It is a 5 level program, and I have completed the first 2 levels. I have always wanted to learn how to do Sadu Weaving and the program began at just the right time for me! While we are learning the weaving patterns, we are weaving lots of long strips. It is my goal to make something functional out of each strip! In order to do this, the process often includes crochet. Crochet can make strong seams, fill in gaps, add surface detail, and make handles. The hook is so versatile, you can stick it anywhere in the weaving!

In honor of Spring I joined 34 of my crochet designer colleagues and created the Crochet for Me Lace Bundle. It’s chock full of 46 individual patterns, never before offered in a bundle or for free, that will give you a wide range of patterns that will suit your lacy fancy.
All sorts of patterns are included from hats and headbands, to tees and shawls, to a dress and jewelry, and even a lacy pillow for your lounging pleasure.
I contributed 3 of my popular patterns to the bundle. The Gloria Headband, Venezia Necklace, and Julia Necklace.
Want to see what else is included? Have a look at this video featuring designs from the bundle.
If you purchased these patterns individually they would cost you well over $200. And by buying from a coalition of designers like this instead of a huge publisher, you know that your money is going where it’s needed – into the pockets of your favorite designers so they can keep on creating the patterns you love to make.
If all of that is not enough to convince you you need this bundle here’s one more great thing. Once you gain access to the patterns you ALSO get a file with extra discount codes for additional products offered by some of our amazing designer friends. And there’s a 15 day money back guarantee so you have absolutely nothing to lose.
So support the community that you love, rejoice in the fact that you are a clever bargain hunter, then put your feet up and crochet something light and lacy as you watch the flowers bloom! Enjoy all of these things – and the lovely Spring weather – while they last.

Are you looking for a fun little project to crochet in time for Valentines Day? I designed the Queen of Hearts Necklace pattern to celebrate one of my favorite necklace themes, the heart! My most favorite jewelry pieces are those featuring hearts. Visions of hearts trigger positive happy feelings, so I always love wearing them.
This heart necklace has some unique details and make it satisfying to crochet and a special piece to create. Along with loving hearts I have long had an obsession with bows, so I thought why not combine the two!
I used metallic yarns to create this necklace, but any DK weight yarn will do. It just takes a bit of yarn, so you just might have some small bits in your stash that would be perfect for this necklace!
The pattern is available to download for FREE in my Ravelry store. If you make the necklace, I would love so much to see you post project photos on Ravelry!
Happy Crocheting everyone!
