Cheers To Growing Old!
The Only Job I Have Now Is To Take Care Of My Health...

~Wearing Yarn~

It's An Extra Bonus...
To Make Somethun...
Then Wear It!!!

I Absolutely LOVE To Crochet...
I Not Only Love The Process Of Crocheting...
I Love The Finished Product...
Afghans, Headbands, Yarn Wrapped Trees...
Slippers, Fingerless Gloves, Ponchos...
Bits & Bobs For Funked Up Fiber Art...
Doesn't Matter What It Is...
I LOVE It!!

I Love That Ponchos Can Be Worn...
With The Points To The Sides...
Like I'm Wearing This Poncho Today...
I'm Wearing A Top Today That The Yarn Slides About A Bit...
The Poncho Stays In Place Better With This Type Of Top...
Wearing The Points Down The Front & Back...
More The Traditional Way...
Gives It An Entirely Different Look...
I LOVE Both Ways!
So Fun To Play With Your Crochet!!
