Like I Need Another Hobby ...

I managed to talk myself out of learning how to quilt (which I still want to learn someday), but I stumbled upon a blog, Maybe Matilda, that is hosting a crochet-a-long FOR BEGINNERS. Lots of pictures, detailed instructions, and starting with the very basics -- how could I not give it a try?!?

And so, I humbly present my first attempt at crocheting:

Just practicing single crochet, half double crochet, and double crochet stitches. Haven't started an actual pattern yet.


  1. Ooooooh!!! Looking great... can't wait to see the next pic. :D

  2. LOL...No!! Re-talk yourself into quilting. It is such a rewarding hobby..believe me. It is really addicting. Don't hate me for enabling but you have to see this blog:

    It is awesome and they are giving away prizes every day for people who want to be quilters. You just have to have a sponser. That is explained on the website rules. I actually just won a $130 iron on that site this last week.

    Go have a looksie! ;)
