Crochet: Afghan block
My grandmother used to have beautiful sunflowers in her small, backyard garden. Sunflowers always brighten my day - I hope this square does the same for you!
Crochet: Afghan block
I was inspired to design this square by childhood memories from summers spent at my maternal grandmother’s house. Pink roses used to grow on the fence between her back yard and her neighbors’s yard. I think the roses actually belonged to the neighbors, but sharing didn’t seem to be a problem. This center of this square is a var...

Crochet: Scarf
This wide scarf uses a light weight yarn to combine a gentle drape with a textured surface.
