Happy Crocheting,

Giveaway, Link Party and more…

I have been very busy this week – I thought things would calm down after the blogging challenges finished but instead – they have been very busy!

I recently released a pattern to my pattern testers – ย I have 20 lovely ladies currently testing out my new design:

I read a very informative ebook by Sara Duggan,

Hooking for Cash: 10 Ways to Make Money with Your Crochet Blog,ย 2nd Edition, ย Author:ย Sara Duggan;ย Price: $4.99 (USD)
and have 1 copy to giveaway on my blog (giveaway ends today! in just over 11 hours). You can enter HERE.

I finished A Crochet Bucket List Project –


Announced the most clicked links from my 1st “Link & Share Wednesdays – so…what’s on your hook” party.

You can add your link to this week’s party HERE.

I posted about some of the August CALs I have come across (if you know of any I missed please let me know!):


and today’s post is my first “Free Pattern Friday Round-up!”. ย I have included 5 links to free patterns for crochet dolls.

I also spent hours (and I mean HOURS) trying to figure out how to add a weekly Newsletter option to my blog- it is a visual newsletter showing a photo from each post I make during the week – each image can be clicked to take you to the post – that way you can ‘pick & choose’ any that are of interest and pop over to learn more ๐Ÿ™‚
If you are interested please sign-up for the newsletter on my homepage HERE– it is delivered on Saturdays each week.

I hope you all had lovely weeks – and enjoy your weekends –

I can’t believe it is already August – my daughter starts JK this September – I am so nervous (and she is so excited!)

Happy Crocheting!
