Wren’s Cobblestone Stitch Blanket, And Holiday Dress

With the temperatures reaching a significant low this year, I asked the dolls what they’d like me to make for them – blanket? sweater? beanie? – and they answered simultaneously: “BLANKETS.” The dolls have been enduring the cold – as we all have – but now it’s time they had something cozy for all those […]

T&A #4: Arts Festival Mentality, And Disposition

And we’re back to the Arts Festival T&A series! It’s been months since I last posted something related to Arts Festivals or craft fairs. Figured it would be best to continue this series before moving on to more in-depth posts about other T&A posts, such as TAODC. ∗∗∗ Not everyone realizes this, but it’s critical […]

Hello everyone, Olive here!  Welcome to my first tutorial! Today, I’ll be walking you guys through my process in making last year’s anniversary gift for my parents.

So… What “Inspires” You?

Bonjour mes amis! Yvonne here. I have always loved that scene in All Creatures Great and Small when Herriot delivers a calf at the Dinsdales’ farm. He writes: “I grinned. This was the bit I liked. The little miracle … [I]t was something that would never grow stale no matter how much I saw it.” […]

A Brief Look Back

Backward go the months and forward go the years. Thought I’d share a comparison of the Crochet Buddies agenda back in May, and how it’s turned out. Things have changed since then – including the addition of two Buddies: Olive and Yvonne. I don’t think I would be a smidgen as inspired to write, to […]

Orchid

Orchid

In Charge (well, almost)

Hello everyone! I'm Orchid, the "human" who started this site. I've been crocheting for about 5 years now, and love being able to share knowledge and ideas with fellow crocheters, crafters and anyone who stops by. I also love giving advice to those new to the crafting world. If you're stuck on a project, or need some special form of inspiration, you've come to the right place. Welcome to the community!

    Writer, crafter, best friend and motivation extraordinaire

    Hey all! I’m Olive. I am Orchid’s best friend and very proud to be a part of this fabulous project! (And did I mention I’m human? That seems important.) My posts will range from DIY projects, to picture posts of the glimmers of wonder I see around me as I go through my days. I’m also working on a trilogy novel series “The Song of the Midnight Flower”, which is constantly being inspired by everything around me. I can’t wait to meet you, and share my creative visions with you guys!

      Crocheter, Writer, Crafter And Best Friend

      Bonjour! I’m Yvonne, a friend of Orchid and Olive’s. Like them, I’m a writer, crocheter, and doer of all things crafty. Most recently, I’ve dedicated myself to creative non-fiction and portraiture (which, I’m guessing, is what most of my posts will center around). I’m very excited to be a part of this project, and I look forward to meeting you all!
