I have been crocheting since I was 9 yrs old. I use to make a living on it. This craft actually paid my rent in the 70s. I love making colorful doilies. I am addicted to this activity and can't seem to stop. Outside of spending time on the beach, this craft is truly my passion. I make all my Christmas gifts each year. this year it was crocheted slippers and they were a hit. I enjoy sharing ideas and techniques with fellow crocheters.
