Crochet Pattern: Eggplant Play Food

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on September 15th, 2012 by Emilee Gettle – 2 Comments
Our produce is finally starting to slow down in our massive gardens. Looking back, one of our most prolific crops was eggplant! It is one of my husband’s favorite vegetables. It takes a bit of creativity to come up with new recipes to use up our bountiful harvest. Thankfully he never seems to tire of the cooking experiments! This week, since I have so much inspiration around me, I decided to create this eggplant play food pattern just for the fun of it! It is a great scrap saver project. If you choose to use wool yarn you could even felt the eggplant. Have fun!

As the final few weeks of summer wind down we are enjoying the last of our homegrown watermelons.

We’ve even taken several to our state fair to be displayed along with the rest of our garden’s bounty. It is so hard to believe that we are approaching the end of August.

Crochet Pattern: Sunflower Applique

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on August 15th, 2012 by Emilee Gettle – 1 Comment
I think sunflowers are one of the most beautiful flowers in the garden. Their smiling faces, which follow the movement of the sun, remind me to always look for the bright side of every circumstance and to turn my back on dark days. I find crochet easily as therapeutic as enjoying a beautiful flower garden. So, I decided to combine the two this week. This project can be whipped up in no time. I plan on making several sunflowers, joining them at the petals, and creating a lacy scarf. Another use for this easy pattern is coasters!
