~ just stuff ~


When I'm crocheting I make a mess all around me.  Stuff is spread out everywhere.  I don't care - I love being surrounded with all my stuff.  Here's a picture of my crochet spot - usually it's alot worse.  Do you have a favorite crochet spot?  Is it messy?  :)

Rie from 'CraftyRie' has created the 'Universal Craft Blog Directory'.  The name is pretty self-explanatory and the link is over on the right sidebar.  Hop on over and add your link.

I crocheted some hand towels for the bathroom.  Always a good thing to have.

Remember the scrappy round ripple I crocheted when I was on vacation?  I went back and added buttons to the point tips and 1 large flower button to the middle.  (This blanket is for me - not a child.)  Thanks to Shell from 'Little Orphan Skein' for the nudge to do it.  :)



Have a great crochet day.  :)

  1. Hi, Debi! 'Love your blog,..and YES, my work area is very cluttered when I crochet. At the moment I have 95 squares laid out on the living room floor and I'm crocheting Christmas hearts while deciding whether I need more squares, and there's just YARN all over the place (lol). It gets cleaned up, but I need it like this while I'm working. Your area is neat compared to mine!

  2. My crochet spot is a corner in the sofa and is extremely messy. I am thinking of buying a basket like yours to put stuff in that and reduce all the mess scattered around.Love the round ripple!!

  4. Your spot looks really tidy compared to mine :) I've usually got several projects lying around, plus yarn everywhere, plus scissors/hooks/needles etc, plus several magazines and books. Every time I tidy up, it usually takes just a few hours to sit in the same chaos again. Obviously I need all the stuff around me :)

  5. Yes, I have a crochet "spot" and it's messy, messy, messy! Sometimes I have up to three TV trays all full of yarn and crochet stuff.

    Cute blanket...the buttons are a nice touch!

  7. Yes Debi, I have a crochet and knitting spot and there are times it looks just like a fort around me when it is at it's worst. Then I spend a bit of time hauling it all back to my craft/sewing/computer room and start with a clean slate...only eventually it becomes messy again and I have to repeat the process. The other day I had stuff so piled up my husband had to move the remote from his right hand to his left hand to get the signal to work. It has become an issue with me threatening to just move myself completely back to my room...the room where I need a trail of bread crumbs to find my way in and out....lol.

  9. Love your star afghan! So cool, all those different colors :)
    I just blogged about my favorite crochet space too - mine's in the corner of the sofa, next to the windowsill! And that poor windowsill gets crammed with more stuff every day... ;)

  11. Sounds like we all have a lot in common. My spot is always a mess unless company is coming. I pare it down, and it rebuilds. (I think it has a mind of its own.) I even get organizational containers, but then I fill them, and the overflow takes over. Woe is me! I keep hoping to improve...

  12. I LOVE seeing your crochet spot Debi.

    I'm so bad I have two places.

    The one I use the most is the kitchen table, purely because it's easier to have my things all over the table AND I get to have my laptop with me as well, so I can be online as well as crocheting.

    My other place is a comfy chair in the front room with a nice light behind me and my box of yarn next to me. It's the more cosy and comfy place, so why I spend more time sat on a hard chair in the kitchen I don't know!

  13. I never thought of making the hanging towels for the bathroom. What a great idea!

  14. My crochet spot is pretty messy. I have a table next to my side of the couch, another in front of my spot and they're both full of crochet paraphernalia. Also have a couple baskets of yarn close by. Have a great weekend Debi.

  15. Love the scrappy ripple it looks fantastic!! I too seem to create mess on our coffee table when I crochet especially if I'm working on more than one project and it tends to follow me around the house up the hall and into bed. lol.
