The History of Earth Day - LINK

"The first Earth Day was celebrated in 1970. A US Senator From Wisconsin organized a national demonstration to raise
awareness about environmental issues. Rallies began to take place across the Country, and by the end of the year, The US government created The Environmental protection Agency. By 1990, Earth Day had become a international even celebrated by over 140 countries around the world."


I Love This Little bag. I always love a bag with a drawstring.
 It is the perfect size, at 12 inches tall by 16 inches around.
It can be used as a purse, a lunch bag, nature walk bag, 
and also a project bag. 



I designed this Bag to have the main colors of our 
beautiful earth, bright blue, bright green and 
snow white ice. I especially love those earth-like
 pom poms added to the ends of the drawstrings. 
The pom poms can be used as a key chain, or just to 
add a little touch to any project.
I will show you how to make these fun pompoms 
at the end of the Video.

Today's Question
When Does A Ch3 Count as a Dc, 
and Where do I place My 1st DC.

When The Pattern States "Ch 3 Counts as a dc",
That means it is usually the 1st dc of the Rows. 
So you skip the 1st dc, counts the ch3 as your 1st dc,
 and begin stitching in the next, or 2nd st.

April Stitch of The Month - Alpine Stitch Washcloth | Posh Pooch Designs

 April Stitch of The Month -  
Alpine Stitch Washcloth
By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs 


The Alpine Stitch is  stitched using Front Post Double 
Crochet Stitches in a alternating Pattern. It makes a thick
 textured pattern that makes a wonderful washcloth.
 It can also be used for hats, scarves, bags, blankets, 
ponchos and much more projects.

You can use any weight of yarn and any crochet hook to
 stitch up the alpine Stitch Pattern. We are using cotton
 yarn from Premier Yarns and an I . 5.50 mm size crochet
 hook, because we are going to make a washcloth for
 Our practice project.



I Love The Alpine Stitch Pattern For This Washcloth. 
It has a textured side that is perfect for washing dishes, 
and can also be used as a regular washcloth. And it 
is not too harsh for a face cloth.

Scrub It Flower Scrubby Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

 Scrub It Flower Scrubby
 Crochet Pattern 
By Sara Sach Of  Posh Pooch Designs 

🌻🌼🌻🌼🌻🌼🌻🌼🌻🌼🌻🌼🌻🌼🌻🌼🌻🌼
The Flower Scrubbies Are A Fun  And Cheerful Way
To Do The Dishes.

Although these are bright and sunny, they are
 also very durable. I designed them using 
Yarn Bee Scrub- ology Scrub it yarn From Hobby Lobby.
This yarn is a bulky (5) yarn, and can be machine 
washed and dried. They have several pretty colors.
So You can make flowers in lots of lovely colors.
Because the Yarn is a bulky yarn, they stitch up
 easily and quickly 


If You do not have this yarn, you can make them
Holding 2 strands of Med(4) yarns together,  
or 1 strand of scrubby yarn and 1 strand of cotton
 held together.


What a wonderful addition to a wedding, birthday
 and house warming gift. They also would be great
 just for decorations. Maybe string them up for a 
cheerful bunting and hang them in the window.
