Hi Sis,
Wow I used to crochet when I was stationed in Germany, I haven't done any since I got back to the states, Both of my grandmothers used to crochet all the time. I wish I had kept some of their work. Thanks for sharing another beautiful creation.

Hugzzzz Lorie

Hi, Janet. Thanks for stopping by. I learned to crochet from my mom. She told me if I really wanted to learn, I needed to make an endless length of chains. I didn't understand at the time, but now I realize that she wanted me to perfect my chains, crochet evenly, and show her that I was serious about learning. I was serious. ;-D

Alo-o-o-ha, Teri! I'm imagining you on your recent trip to the islands . . .

Hi, Lorie. It's amazing how an image or piece of art can evoke memories and emotions. I imagine crocheting reminds you of Germany and your Tutu's. Hugzzz back!

Thanks, Jacq. Always good to see you.
