A Few Things About Me

  • Real name

  • Short bio
    I was taught to crochet by my mother when I was a child in the 80's. Of course, I stopped for several years during my teenage years and early motherhood. Now that my sons are teenagers I have picked up all kinds of hobbies, including crocheting again. I am quickly accumulating vasts amounts of yarns along with material.

  1. jrnylst Thank you so much!!!I am tyring this one this weekend. CaraLouise Those are just gorgeous! I love coloring on the rose snowflake. dedee1ca Congratulations!!!! I know it had to be hard to go home each night leaving her behind. It has got to feel good to know that she is home and safe with the family.
  2. jrnylst, Thank you for the pointer on beading snowflakes. I was looking everywhere for a good beaded pattern. I am going to try it this weekend! Your Grays Peak snowflake is just beautiful. I love all your patterns! Here's my number 3. The pattern came from http://crochet.about.com/od/hats/a/snowflake-cloche-hat-free-crochet-pattern.htm
  3. Thank you for your help! This just goes to show that humans can't be replaced totally by computers. We are still needed!
  4. This one showed up immediately. Is there a delay in posts when you upload a picture? My other post had a picture in them.
  5. I have tried twice now and I will see if this one works. I made very sure the last time that I clicked the submit button. I did check under my name and it didn't show either of my new posts. I didn't know if because I am new to crochetville if there was a delay, but my other posts showed up within a few minutes. Just puzzled
  6. This is my 1st time at making snowflakes and I think I found a new love. It is so much fun to make it snow! They are not very stiff since I only used a spray starch. I will probably try to make my own cornstarch stiffener this weekend since I found the great recipe on Snowcatcher's website. By the way I love all your patterns and I will be trying them out soon! I got the pattern for the 1st snowflake from http://www.crochetspot.com/crochet-pattern-my-favorite-snowflake/ The second one is from http://www.bhg.com/christmas/cards/crochet-a-snowflake-gift-topper/ I think I want to try a beaded snowflake next. Any good suggestions?
  7. I would love to join in on this CAL. Since I moved to Georgia I so miss my snow! I may only have time to do one a week but at least that is a start to my snowstorm.
  8. Thank you everyone for the warm welcomes!
  9. I' m from Georgia just south of Atlanta. My mother taught me to crochet in the 80's. Though when I hit my teens and early motherhood, I laid my hooks and yarn down for some time. In the past year I have come to revisit my love of crochet and I am amazed with all the different stitches that I never new existed in my youth. I still don't have lots of free time so I find enjoyment in creating small projects that can be completed in the weekend. Dolls, doll clothes, washcloths, potholders, snowflakes and so on. My only issue now is trying to find an outlet to get rid of my little projects that I am accumilating! But that will not stop me from making more! Aimee
  10. I see a lot of people looking for charities. I had found this one a while back but have yet had the time to donate anything yet. http://www.projectlinus.org/
