Welcome!


About Me E-mail
Have you heard the one about the homeschooling family that lives on less than $22K a year in an area that costs above 100% (116%) of the National CoL Index?

I haven't quite figured out why so many people still persist in perpetuating the myth that living on a single income and homeschooling on a dime aren't possible. I can only suppose these are people who can't imagine life without a daily trip to Starbucks and dinner out several times a week. The people who actually shop at malls (*shudder*) and think "Brand Name = Best". The people who really live by the "Keeping up with the Joneses" mentality.

That? Would not be us!

Welcome to our world. We cook from scratch. Buy from thrift stores. Find 95% of our homeschool materials for free. This is my blog and this is how we do it.

Some more free crochet patterns.

If you have a daughter who likes head scarves (or know a little girl who does) THIS PATTERN is simple enough that you could whip one up yourself or teach her how to make her own.

And here's a SIMPLE BELT PATTERN - your daughter could make a head scarf and matching belt, or you could make a set as a gift for a special little lady. :)

This one's interesting not so much in what it is, but for the explanation on how to determine the size of a project: CROCHET CURTAINS

Finally, here's a pattern for EASY SLIPPERS FOR BEGINNERS - something else that might make a nice gift.

I love to crochet when I have the time, which is hopefully going to be more often. Thanks for the patterns, I especially like the slippers and the belt. Gonna try those!

Thanks for the great patterns! I recently learned how to crochet and have been on the lookout for new projects to try.
