Join the Ultimate Blog Party

Have you heard about the Ultimate Blog Party sponsored by 5 Minutes for Mom? What a cool idea and four days into the party, there are over 700 blogs listed. Wow! I'd better start hopping.

This blog started three years ago but lacked focus until this year, when I took the ultimate blogging class from Diane Gilleland at Crafty Pod. Now I have a focus, direction and excitement about blogging my crochet and craft projects! Plus, I have started some great friendships with other crafty creatives.

My favorite projects include jewelry, accessories, and home decor. Thank Mom for re-teaching me to crochet about 5 years ago because when she taught me as a kid, it didn't stick. There are five (that we know of) generations of crochet, quilt and knitting talent in our family. I recently started a project to reproduce my great grandmother's venetian lace collar with a pattern from 1912. Still making those tiny grapes and trying to figure out the leaf directions but it's coming along.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'll be making the rounds soon myself!


  1. Hi Martha! I actually laughed out loud when I saw your "keep calm and carry yarn" title on the UBP11 page - I'm a knitter/crocheter and known for always having emergency yarn! Glad to meet you and look forward to hearing more from you in the future. I like the "blarter" idea - need to check that out! Have a great day~
