boy howdy---this was/is interesting! LOL--my first real attempt--had a class about 3 yrs ago--I didnt remember much from that class obviously, because it took me about 6 tries to get this to the point that is look right :o)! hehehehe this block pattern is from Quilter's Cache and is called Michigan and is a lottery block for the Thimbleberries list I was led to! now that I can actually see what it is supposed to do/be, i really like it and want to make more...i pieced it using regular computer paper and a teeny stitch and it tears away nicely. Most of my trouble was that I neglected to see the secondary design. See, learn something new every day!
I have been tinkering with a crochet design. A publishing company put out a plea for designs asap and I sent picture and it was accepted right away. I am working on finishing up the border, then typing up the instructions from my notes and this will go out on Monday. Because of the nature of this and copyright laws, and such, I cannot give any information till the book is released. But I can tell you that I am immensely excited! This is my first *all mine* crochet item to be published! I am hoping that this will send me on my way. I dont expect to get rich, but getting paid for what I enjoy doing is certainly a nice benefit! if nothing else, it will keep me in stashes! hehehe *~*CAROLE*~*
