Yesterday I shared my YoolaDesign crochet wire lampshade. It reminded me that back in 2012 I did a roundup of crochet lamps and I’ve been meaning to do a fresh roundup all year long. Well, that roundup is here. You’ll find crochet lamp patterns, tutorials and inspirational photos here to inspire your own crafting!
Yesterday we took a look at 30 crochet pillow patterns. Sometimes it also helps to just look at what other people have crocheted to get inspiration so here are some fabulous crochet pillows that people have shared with us over on Instagram.
Mandalas for Marinke has received so many great crochet mandala contributions, and the deadline has been extended so even more people can participate. I suggested that people use Wink’s mandala patterns, because it’s a great way to allow her work to continue inspiring others even though she is now gone. However, the project does accept crochet mandalas of any design, and a lot of people have asked me where to get good designs, so I thought I’d round up some other crochet mandala patterns in addition to Wink’s.
As I mentioned previously, I’m happy to be one of the judges for this 3rd quarter of The Crochet Awards, formerly known as The Flamies. The judges’ nominations are all in now for the categories, which are all about crochet for the home. Take a look at what we chose, then it’s your turn to submit fan nominations and come September everyone can vote.

Coming up with innovative ways to display your crochet works can be a challenge, but there are tons of fun ways you can use your masterpieces to decorate your home.
Yesterday I shared my post about the t-shirt yarn crochet baskets I made using yarn from Wool and the Gang. I also used that same t-shirt yarn (called Jersey Be Good) to make new bath mats for myself.
