Today I’m participating in a group blogging experience! WOW! Women On Writing has gathered a group of blogging buddies to write about finding love in unimaginable places. Bien sûr, it won’t be unimaginable to most of you that I found love through crochet and the craft community!
I’ve been taking a look back at the guest posts I did after Crochet Saved My Life was first published. Here is one and links to others!
Erica Dawn learned to crochet when she was a young child, about the age of six. Her grandmother had taught her the basics, but she lost interest in it fairly quickly. Puis, about five years ago, that same grandmother passed away on the night of her 93rd birthday. Erica picked up the hook again to help her deal with the loss. Dans cette interview, she shares that experience and how crochet has helped.
PhyllisAnn learned to crochet in her early teens but really turned to the craft as an adult during a time of need.
