I love to crochet!!!! Learned when I was raised on a farm as a young child, still do occasionally! I am following your blog and was wondering if you would follow mine?

Thanks
Linda

Hello, I just found your web site/blog and although I don't usually comment, I had to tell you how beautiful this square is! It's gorgeous! I think I've finally found a square I would use in a gift lapghan or scarf. Thank you!

I love this Pattern but I am confused about the wreath/flower. I have not been able to locate the pattern for that part of the square. Is there somewhere I can locate it?

Thanks ladies!! Katie, the name, "Flower Wreath" just means that by using the white center and green outer makes it look more like a wreath, but if you use one color or other colors it comes out looking like a flower. I wanted to design a square that said, "Christmas" but at the same time design a square that could be made anytime of the year without being "Christmasy"

I have printed out these beautiful squares to put together an afghan for a special lady who just lost her Mom. You are a great designer & I thank you for posting all of these wonderful squares!!

Hi Debbie, I am honored that you like my squares. I am saddened to hear about anyone who has lost someone they love. I am sure this afghan will be made with lots of love.
