First Crochet Exchange...

Well I completed my first crochet exchange a few weeks ago and it was fun. You get a partner and both of you list things and colors that you like and then you make something to send to them. We kind of had a theme this month which was Valentineso I made my partner a neat heart shaped coaster and then I made 2 other regular round coasters in a red, pink, white varigated cotton yarn- Peaches N' Cream. I posted pics of both in the Coaster section. My partner made me a really cute crochet doll and 2 coasters. I posted pictures of those in the exchange section.

I enjoyed that exchange so much that I am going to do it again in March and I also joined a dishcloth exchange for March as well. I can't wait to see what I get from that one!

Expanding My Talent

Well I wanted to crochet something different from baby blankets and snowflake ornaments so I decided to try my hand at a drawstring bag and I am glad I did! It turned out perfect, you can see a pic of it further down the page. I am glad I tried something different, I will definately be making more!
