My Latest Work

Part 1: I am SO Frustrated!

You know, technology is wonderful – when it works. If you’ve been following my wondrous blog, you’ll know that my nephew and his wife are expecting a baby girl in December. So of course I have been in the process of making crocheted items for...

Part 2: Just Buy the Pattern!

You know, they say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. And sometimes life just makes sure I don’t forget it. I’ve been crocheting fairly consistently now for about 30 years and I consider myself at an intermediate level, although I’ve...
