Everyone looks forward to Friday’s…especially me! That’s because Friday’s are for finishing!

This week I worked on A LOT of different stuff. Each Sunday I make 9 goals for myself. Three for crochet, three for quilting, and three for Happily Hooked Magazine. I work to accomplish each of those goals to the best of my ability! So, how did I do?



I was able to finish a new quilt design which I’ve been sharing sneak peeks on my Instagram. You can follow me over there @rohnstrong. I also made a few project bag samples (cause I might have something up my sleeve) and I finished up Chase’s Quilt. My first huge quilt that my dog Chase claimed his.


I finished my newest free pattern for Red Heart Yarns, that’ll be out this summer but it’s killer Y’all. So gorgeous and fun to crochet! It uses their new It’s a Wrap yarn…get this yarn if you can. It’s the perfect summer yarn. I also finished up a tunisian crochet cowl and planned a few projects using some of my favorite yarns from Unplanned Peacock Studios.

This is boring technical stuff but I finished a few email sequences, blog posts, and wrote an article for the next issue…along with our usual meetings and newsletter writing!

This weekend I need to get my butt in gear and crochet as much as I can. I’m feeling behind on my self-imposed deadlines but they are there for a reason. I’m working on a new collection, filming Annie’s Creative Studio season 4, and prepping for teaching next year. I’m hoping to teach at a lot more festivals and events! If you know of any…please let me know!

Lastly, I thought I’d share a few things that I’m currently loving with y’all!


I just finished up a big commission with Red Heart working with their yarn, It’s A Wrap. It’s a great fingering weight cotton/acrylic yarn that you’re going to love for summer! Promise!


I talked about these in my Carolina Fiber Fest Wrap Up…but Twin Birch crochet hooks are my new favorite. They’re a local company and I want one of each of their hooks. All of them. All.


I ordered a copy of The New Tunisian Crochet by Dora Orhenstein, which I think (sadly) is going out of print…so order it if you want!


Well, that’s it for this week! I’ll see y’all on Monday with a new FREE pattern! Make sure to subscribe to the blog to stay up to date! And the newsletter! And my Instagram @rohnstrong!
