    Congrads everyone on creating lots of things in 2017......Martha your blanket is great and the best part was you being able to share a picture :O) :O)..

    I worked on a few last minute gifts in 2017 however I didn't get to share so the next 3 post are just picture to share....

    Pic 1---> For my mom I made Large Pot Hot Pads....I opted to crochet into both loops vs just the back of the rounds to create a thicker hot pad.......
