Basket Weave Dishcloth Pattern

It's spring!  The weather is warming up and trees and flowers are starting to bloom, so we all know what this means....its time to spring clean!  I'm typically not ever excited to clean but I thought making some cute bold colored dishcloths would help motivate me to do the job.  Will it work... maybe.  Only time will tell.  I will say though that I do like how they look resting over the kitchen sink.  They brighten up the whole space!

DIY: Embroidered Geometric Canvas Tote

Hello friends, happy Friday!  I hope everyone had a great week.  Today I would like to share with you this embroidered canvas tote I've been working on the past few days.  I love having bags of all shapes and sizes and for all different sorts of purposes.  Last week I shared this Crochet Mesh Market Tote which is great for grocery shopping or carrying whatever you like.  

I made this bag as an activity bag to stash my current knitting or crochet project for an easy grab'n go thing.  But really it could be used for any purpose.  This tote features a trendy geometric design and a faux leather bottom.

Crochet Mesh Grocery Tote Pattern

We do a lot of grocery shopping at Aldi.   If you've ever been there you know it's  a great place to go for super low prices!  One of the ways they can keep prices down is by not providing grocery bags, among other things.  You either have to buy them there or provide your own.  For whatever reason I always forget to bring bags with me.   This drives me nuts because I never remember I don't have any bags until I pull into the parking lot...go figure.

Happy St. Patrick's Day + Free Printable!!

Hello my friends, Happy St. Patrick's Day!  In honor of the special day I thought I would share with you a free printable!  Ok, so I'm about to ask you a serious question...have you seen The Office?  I sure hope you have, but if not then I am telling you it is a must!  It's so hilarious, I LOVE it and think you will too!   It's my absolute favorite tv show.  Ever. You could probably say it's an obsession.  

Anyways, the quote on the printable is a remark made by Dwight Schrute to his arch nemesis Jim Halpert.  This was one of my favorite episodes for so many different reasons and this clip is so funny on a couple different levels.  I love when shows and movies reference each other.  The Office has made lots of Titanic and Harry Potter references over the years and they cracked me up every time.  You may already know about my Titanic obsession from the Knit Heart of the Ocean Necklace I made last month, if not check it out!
