I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting.

No I have not disappeared with the new year. I have been working very hard in many things. I am making this Evenstar Shawl as a wedding Veil for a gift.

Long time ago I decided to buy gifts for myself, wrap them and put them under the tree. I celebrate Christmas my way , even if I am not a Christian anymore.
