Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

As seen Online...

My kids love music!
They can turn just about anything into a musical instrument... a bucket, a couple of sticks, various bumpy objects that they can run something across to make sound... you get the idea.

When I saw a tutorial for a Drinking Straw Flute from Relentlessly Fun, Deceptively Educational (you should totally check her site out!), I knew my kids would love it!
We just had to make a few of our own!

I like the fact that this project incorporated measuring and size relations, as well as the musical aspect of it. Learning has never been so fun!

Thank you Relentlessly Fun, Deceptively Educational! We had a lot of fun!



  1. Susie, I'm thrilled your kiddos enjoyed this activity. Thanks for linking back to my blog!!

  2. New Follower! Looking forward to reading more.
    Hope you will follow back!

  3. Does blowing through the different parts actually make sounds? (Or do you just need to pretend the sounds).

    1. You can get a sound! :-) Have you ever tried blowing across the top of a straw while it is in a cup of water (or soda or juice, etc...)? Well, it's sort of like that, but not as strong. :-)


I love getting feedback from my readers!
