I have been crocheting for about 40 years and enjoy relaxing in my easy chair with my yarn, my needle and my cat! She loves to watch me crochet and sometimes likes to participate. I have recently joined the CrochetMe family and am looking forward to getting new patterns and new ideas from other members. I am a member of a knitting/crocheting group at my church and we knit and crochet lap throws and various other items for the local nursing homes. We also do layettes for another group at our church who gives them to pregnant women in need. It is so rewarding to make something for someone who needs a bit of joy and love in their life.
