Sewing ventures

Floral and Paris tote

This week has come with a lot of wonderful activities in the Nerdy House.

Please consider using reusable bags for your groceries. This New Year resolve to be ecofriendly. It is never a good idea to use a single time use plastic bag to carry your groceries from the car to you house. Use durable, reusable, pretty-looking bags. These are one time investments and can last a long time. Let the future generations learn from you to be kind to the environment. We can make a difference in our lifetime and help everyone around us.

These are the new bags available this week at the ANC Madeit and Etsy stores.


Have an amazing crafty weekend.




Crocheted items

May Wreath

In between blanket projects I was working on this cute little spring wreath. I have a wreath for the holidays and a winter wreath. I really wanted to change the tone to spring. I didn’t want to start a super big project just after having spent a lot of time on the winter wreath. So I bought a small wreath backbone from Michaels (for less than $3.00), pearl pins and crocheted in bright colors to represent spring. Adding the flowers really completed it. I think I’ll eventually add more flowers and birds to this to give it a fuller look.


The pattern for this wreath is available for free from the lovely attic 24. Lucy, from attic24, also has great tutorials for the flowers and leaves. You can spend hours looking at her site. So pretty and colorful work.


Hope you are also having a lovely colorful and bright weekend. Happy crocheting!
