My mom started teaching me to crochet when I was 6. I hated it. Fortunately, I tried it again when I was about 12, and haven't put it down since.
I mostly crochet for my little ones. They are my inspiration and motivation for everything. I love looking around me and wondering how I can make THAT into a crochet project. I especially love when one of my munchkins comes to me and asks me to make something specific for them. It's delightfully fun!!
I have posted many free patterns and tutorials for crocheting, quilting, and sewing on my blog: www.sunsetfamilyliving.com
