HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017

Wow!! It sure has been awhile since my last post. Almost a year!!  Well I am hoping that changes, I have so much going on with my family, and other online stuff, mainly facebook, Ravelry and so on. 

I have been lacking in the design world, so that will change this year!!  I am hoping to design more.  If you like dishcloths, I have a group on Ravelry called, "Dishcloth times 12" we usually post a crochet and a knit dishcloth each month, well I have decided for this year, I am going to design a crochet dishcloth each month.  If you are interested, check us out.  

Some of my recent projects!!

Some more of my recent projects, the Gingerbread was done a few months back and guess what?  I forgot to display it this Christmas!!  LOL
