I love crochet. I tried to do it decades ago with little success so I just kept knitting. However, all that changed after learning to crochet step by step with pics to guide me on Attic 24 and joining a Crochet A Long. I had previously done some crocheting with some help via the phone from a blog friend and I had some success but now I absolutely love it. I have been making my munchkin's blue blanket.

A while ago I bought some Thomas the Tank Engine fabric to make 2 pillow cases for my munchkin and I am still trying to get around to sewing them. I need to follow a tutorial.

I bought a small iron from Spotlight quite a while ago to iron the small pieces and blocks I hand piece. I always iron them on a small ironing board in my sewing room but I usually hand piece in another room. So, I decided to buy a small ironing mat to use closer to where I stitch. I also replaced my sand paper board with a lovely thin rubber mat that can be rolled up and even washed.

Thanks for visiting.

Angel Blessings.
