I was pregnant with my first child and wanted to make a baby blanket for myself. No one in my family knew anything about crocheting or knitting. So I taught myself to knit and crochet, then counted cross stitch. That was 30 years ago and I still love making things. Now I make things for my 6 grandchildren.
