Ahoy! Sea Captain Embroidery


Over the summer I participated in local craft shop Blackberg Creative Studio's Cozy Blue sea captain family stitch along. There are three in the series (the sea captain, sea captain's wife, and sea captain's daughter) but I only made it through the first one.

Obviously plans to finish the other two are in order. I just needed a little break. If you have issue completing projects, join a stitch-along. It really motivates you to finish projects.

Lots of FREE Sewing, Knitting, and Crochet Patterns

When I'm writing for Craftsy, my favorite posts are free roundups. There are so many awesome free sewing, knitting, and crochet patterns available for download from talented designers. In fact, I often end up downloading most of them as I'm writing.

Spend your money on fabric and yarn -- because you know you need more of those -- instead of patterns when you download these fab freebies from Craftsy.
