    • Thank you, I picked up crochet one year ago, so you’ll have a really easy time picking it up again 🙂

    • Those are to be treasured! my grandma used to make blankets and bolster covers for me, she did with a sewing machine though, I think it’s called quilting.

  1. hi Antoinette

    I really enjoyed reading this blog. I used to crochet and knitt when i was a bit younger and really loved it. Haven’t done in quite some time now was it was good to read about it…

    Maybe one day we challenge each other to a… ‘virtual crochet” contest, lol

    • Hello, wow I’d love to learn how to knit, looks so complicated with 2 hands. I’d be up for a virtual crochet session! I think I will disappoint in any sort of contest (never was good with competition) but promise I’ll be a good sport lol

  2. I’ve been looking for new hobbies to pursue during quarantine and this post really piqued my interest on crocheting! You did an amazing job on creating that pouch and I hope to do that too! Thanks for your cool post!

    • Aww thanks! Please try it, I find crocheting relaxing and you come up with something pretty too. Win win
