The blog: It is primarily about crochet. I started to crochet in 2012 and I enjoy designing my own crochet patterns: quick, easy, realistic animal patterns. I have made a dozen types of dinosaurs, cats, dogs, horses, lobsters, octopuses, lions, tigers, bears (oh my!), zebras, and on and on. Even a naked mole rat. Fortunately, I jotted down notes while making most of them and someday will hopefully write them all up as patterns.
I am an impulsive crafter, and there will probably be excursions into sewing, knitting, and other crafts. Gardening and cooking might be mentioned. I would like to learn to quilt. There are likely to be many unfinished projects.
The family: I have been married to my husband since 2006. We have four boys and a little girl. R was born in December 2007, Big A in August 2009, O in April 2011, Little A in October 2013, and Miss C was born in January 2016. I’m 99% sure our family is complete. We have 2 cats, which we welcomed to our home in 2006. I am trying to talk my husband into letting me get a dog when Miss C is 3 or 4 years old.
