Crochet Mandalas

I learned to crochet at my grandmother’s knee, at only 5 years old. And though quilting is my passion, crochet continues to be a big part of my world.

Baby Cocoons

My oldest niece is expecting a baby girl in May. It’s been nearly a decade since there was a baby in the family (Julian, now 9+, is the youngest member), so it’s kind of exciting to think about a wee one after all these years.
