Free crochet pattern links and a picture of my groundhog....



*whew* What a few weeks! My aunt died, we got 48 inches of snow in a week's time....
*whew* All I hope for right now is that March doesn't "come in like a lion" this year.....


But on with the free crochet patterns. I know this is late for Valentine's day, but you could still make it for a wedding - a crochet heart shawl

My brother and sister-in-law just became grandparents of a lovely little girl named Eliza. She is a cutie-pie. So since my SIL's name is Rose, I have a few rose themed patterns

How about a vintage rose hat for Eliza?

The snow completely covered my roses in the front of my house. I don't know if they will survive it or not. But I can still have some crocheted roses:

And the rose purse - an oldie but a goody

I don't know what other blogs you may read. I especially enjoy "This Year's Dozen" with the journey of the 101 motif book. Plus the ones she said she wouldn't make again. Check it out - this year's dozen

Here is a tutorial on how to crochet (or knit) with boucle yarn. I find myself getting totally messed up with the stitches, so I tend to use a smooth yarn with it - check this out

We may finally see flowers by November at the rate this is going. So since November's flower is a chrysanthemum, I could make this now and save myself the wait

It's still cold here and they are caring for more snow om Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. I think it's time to make a log cabin afghan

This is a really cool square from Smooth Fox - a flower button square

I don't know if I keep forgetting to put this in or whether I've posted it a dozen times. Hopefully, I didn't post it a dozen times. But if I did, here it is again - the world's biggest crochet hook.
