At the library last month when I was browsing through the craft books, I spied "Knitted Babes" by Claire Garland. I checked the book out from the library and after getting home,decided I was going to make one of these babes, they were sooo cute. Since I didn't have the time to do this while I had the library book, I checked out Amazon's used books. Can you believe 30 cents? That was a no brainer, I bought the book.
At a garage sale a few months ago I bought a crocheted dishcloth. This was the best dishrag I've ever had for wiping the kitchen counters and cleaning. So I got the whim to crochet some dishcloths. I had a book to learn how and a pattern I had printed off the web. This is my first ever crocheted item.
I started sketching my watercolor pallette in Jane LaFazio's class and just finished it. I didn't think I could draw but I'm quite pleased with my efforts.
