I am a mother of 4 and grandmother of 9 with 1 on the way. I enjoy painting landscapes in Acrylics, Oils and Watercolor but I also enjoy crocheting. My mother taught me so whenever I'm working with my crochet hook and yarn my thoughts are of her. I can't resist going to the magazine rack to check for the newest Interweave Crochet. The patterns and tips are fantastic.
