When I started this blog I was very passionate about scrapbooking. I had joined a scrapbooking club that required you to have a blog, and here I am. Now I do still scrapbook but I am no longer in that club. I have not posted anything here since I left that group. Lately I have been really focusing on Crocheting and Needle Tatting. So as the passion goes, so goes the Blog!

I started crocheting when I was 8. My grandmother taught me the basics back then. At that time I did not get past a single crochet. I have since taught myself by info gathered first from neighbors, then from books or magazines, some from friends and more recently on the Internet. I have made several scarves in the past few years, However some of the techniques that I taught myself I have found that I do them incorrectly. I have had to relearn several stitches. I would love to be able to create my own patterns to share or sell. I often come up with projects, but I seem to put it all together as I go, frequently pulling out and redoing several rows. This makes it tough to keep consistent notes, especially when a lot of my crocheting is done on the go.

So I will be posting pictures of recently completed projects, as well as some of my first works (some are kinda sad) tomorrow.

  1. I've never learned how to crochet. My mom was more the quilting/sewing type. Never had an interest in it, either. :) However, I love to scrapbook! Do you like knitting as well?
