Catherine Richardson shares in this crochet health interview: “I never imagined I could be happy with a chronic illness, a feeding tube, no job and only able to go to school one class at a time, but I am, and I know without a doubt that crocheting is part of that!”
I introduced you to Alexandra recently when she was a featured crochet Instagrammer.

Almost two years ago I started a crochet blog project called 50 Years of Crochet History. I loved researching 1930s crochet to kick that off but let it trail away because the research does take a lot of time.
