The Miss Lou Kerchief

A few weeks ago I wrote a short blog post about an upcoming project I was planning. It worked out very well and here are a few pics…..  IMG_3798 (2)

But to really make something stand out, you need a model.

And I have one! Pretty adorable too I might add.

I introduce you to …………………..

Miss Lou!

And so naturally I’ve named my

kerchiefs  “The Miss Lou.”

Stop by the Etsy store to see these and more to come.

It’s A Miracle!


I Did This!

You betchyour bottom booty I did!

Once I watched a youtube tutorial and sat at this computer for the last hour and a half on a Saturday morning when I coulda been sewing, cleaning, or something else.

Etsy decided my shop’s logo wasn’t up to par. So, after some serious looking around, I found a way to make one and I’m pretty dang happy about it.

So drum roll please………

Thanks for your kind attention in this matter.:)

But for the sake of Katy Trail Creations, I’m sharing my latest crocheted edge yoyo piece.

Happy Thursday!



Let Me Inspire You


I present a treasure from that lady Aunt Maybelle! She always knows a good thing when she sees it. This time I’m the lucky recipient :) I have to say, if you haven’t went to an auction or yard sale lately, you could be missing out! I hope this will inspire you to check one out.


To the right, a knitted bootie. To the left are 2 crocheted ones, one almost finished.

There were a couple sets of knitting needles, a kilt pin, and for good measure, a set of paper candy cups. Always useful when you have a bunch of children running around. Will I use them for snack or crafts??? Hmmmm?!

 The crème de la crème is this unfinished baby blanket. It has all the blocks accounted for…..I just have to attach them all.









And I will. I know a few people who are having babies.

By the way Aunt Maybelle, you now have your own Tag on WordPress. Winner Winner!!

Gold Tone

No I’m not referring to my Gold Tone Banjo…….this time.

I’m apparently into the color of Gold though. Who wouldn’t be??!! After all we have Fort Knox? goldThe Gold I’m currently hoarding is this yarn that once was going to be some Crocodile Stitch Slippers.IMG_2156 barbie's requestCan you say Big Fail??

So on to other things.

This time we have a Crochet-As-You-Go attempt.


It begins like this…….

But this is how much yarn I have left.
