I have been happily married of over 27 years. I am a mother of 5 (2 girls and 3 boys) who loves to crochet, sew and hangout with my family. I have a herd of dachshunds who owns us. (You never own a dachshund they own you). I love to try new projects and invent new ideas. My husband and kids are my inspiration.
Crocheting is my therapy when life starts getting crazy ( which is 99% of the time) I just bring out my project and life seems to ease on by. I can get lost in crocheting like people get lost in a good book. ( which I do too)
What a wonderful woodland creature for the little cutie in your life.
