New Year ; New Craft

As we get ready to start the New Year its time to start a New Hobby or Revisit an old hobby.

While cleaning my Mom craft closet I found a stash of yarn. She had taught me to crochet as a child but it had gone to the side . As I found new hobbies. So today I am revisiting this hobby and planning to donate my creations to a cause. Lisa

Need a little refresher course:

Love Square https://www.facebook.com/lovesquared2/

We use 8” x 8” squares to make our blankets. Any pattern or color, but please remember that children will be snuggling up in your squares. No rough cotton or old smelly, scratchy yarn. Please knot your ends and weave them in so they do not come apart in shipping.
