The latest in my pattern updates is this 12 inch American Star Afghan Block.

Rose Square Crochet Pattern

Yes, its Christmas Eve afternoon and I’m still working on my Rose Square crochet pattern.  Its all a vain attempt to fool Santa Claus into thinking I’ve been a good girl.  I haven’t though, I stole biscuits from the cupboard when no one was looking and I’ve ignored the mound of ironing that is threatening […]
