I'm 68, a Christian, retired in 08. My mother taught me to crochet when I was 6 with size 30 crochet cotton and a size 13 hook (tiny) and we would sit and crochet doilies. I've been crocheting on and off all these years for family and friends. I also sew, do counted cross stitch, macrame and paint. I've done numerous crafts in my younger years, but mostly crochet and sew now.
