I am a mother and on my spare time I crochet and cross stitch. But most of the time I crochet. Sometimes I make my own designs but I forget to write them so most of the time I share my patterns through drawings.
I am very fond of crocheting and love to make different crochet projects. I already made lots of projects but i haven't posted them yet. Ill post them soon. Feel free to look at my photos and I can share with you free patterns.
