Hi Sierra! My name is Emily and this is my first CAL! I love your energy and creativity on Instagram! I live in Southern California with my hubby of almost 20 years and our teenage son. I teach first grade and absolutely love it! I learned to crochet from my grandmother when I was about 10 years old. I have picked it back up over the last few years and haven’t stopped! I am not a pattern writer but I love following the patterns of creative people like yourself! I look forward to creating with this community!March 7, 2019 at 11:43 pm #519sierrascraftycreationsKeymaster
So happy to have you here! This is my first CAL in the format, so hopefully you can join me for future ones that will hopefully go a little smoother 😉
Hope you are enjoying the pattern!
