Welcome to Fall

How did it get to be October already? Not that I dislike this month. I love October! It has my two favorite holidays, my birthday and Halloween. It just seems that since July the second half of the year has flown by. I’m usually knee deep in crochet projects by now. I have sent out […]

Being Creative During a Pandemic

For creative people, stress can take away creative energy. A global pandemic is a lot of prolonged stress. I’m not here to preach about masks or vaccines or who and where it started. No politics. That’s a whole other realm of stress. I’m talking about just the daily level of seeing so much news cycle […]

Hot Damn

No, I’m not talking about the weather. The Shop is Live! Yes! etsy.com/shop/hardrockcrochet is now live. I have some really cool artwork from the fabulous Jan Lindie. You can check her out on Instagram here. You will also find the first listings for my crochet patterns. I have some basics to get started and I […]

So much to do

Sorry I’ve been gone a bit. My to-do list seems to never end. I am getting stuff checked off the list though. I have been trying to get all the photos needed to get my Etsy listings ready so I can open the shop. So many photos… The shop should be open very soon. I […]

Happy Free Pattern Day

I mentioned a free pattern the last time I was here. So I want to bring you a lovely, simple scarf pattern that I hope you will adore as much as I do. The Seedling Scarf uses seed stitch, a quick and easy stitch that works up soft and fast. I work the scarf on […]

I could end up gardening or painting, or sewing something new. Sometimes I work jigsaw puzzles or draw or color in my coloring books. These […]

Work, work, work

Feels like I worked as hard over the weekend as I did this past week. I thought you were supposed to rest on weekends? Oh wait, that’s right. I’m launching a business. And I have 20 tomato plants in containers on the deck. And I keep adding plants to the small patio on our back […]

News and stuff

Good news. Not the depressing stuff on TV. My Etsy and Ravelry shops will be open soon! Just wanted to let you know in case you noticed those little links on the Home page. I will be selling primarily patterns that you can crochet yourself. They will be digital downloads. It is the safest thing […]

Nice to meet you…

Hi! I’m Becca. I’m addicted to crafting, coffee and loud music. I’ve been crocheting for over 35 years. I decided it was time to inflict it… I mean share it with more than just my friends and family. I also make costumes, paint, container garden, and I’ve been known to pick up a power tool […]
