Ok... Here is the question.... Quilting or crochet which is the better hobby???  I say BOTH!! 

They are both crafts that make real usable items.  Which I love!

They both are very tactile.  Again.... Love!

They both are great fun and rewarding.....

So, why am talking about crochet on a quilt blog?

Because I have been busy... really busy. 

I started a new job with a 1 hr commute each way.  The good thing is that I carpool.

So, what is a crafty girl to do in the car on the way to and from work??  Be crafty of course.   And what craft is great for car rides?  Crochet!   So I guess you could say that I have "been hooked".

I know that many of you quilters are multicrafters too..   So whether it is crochet, knit, scrapbook, jewelry, painting, paper crafts or other crafts I understand you...

I believe we must stand strong together as a crafting nation!!! No matter your craft---- do what you enjoy and when you enjoy it.

Oh, and here are some pics.....

Happy quilting------ and crafting!!!

Summer crochet and a quick quilt project.

Well everyone, I have been missing in action the last few months.   I wanted to write a quick update on my life and leave you a few pictures.   I have changed jobs.   That is a big part of my absence.   Also, it has been summer so I have been completing more portable projects in crochet and very little in the quilting and sewing aspect of my life.  Warning.  I will be adding adding some crochet chat to this blog so I hope that my readers will be multicrafters like me.  You can find me on ravelry as as amypink11 from nebraska.  For those of you that use ravelry go ahead and add me as a friend their too so as we can see each others crochet and knit projects.  As promised. Here are some pictures.
