A dusting of my past

My photo
My name is Dezarae’. i am originally from Hutchinson, Kansas. i joined the military at 17 served 4 1/2 years. The military itself was not bad, but i delt with alot concerning people in the military. I taught myself to crochet when i was twelve, havent done much until late 2008. When i crochet and knit it makes me feel like i belong to something. Its the one thing in my life that i can fix if i mess it up. I am working on slowly starting up a business which will be called Making Traditions. Making Traditions is a store for all ages and all sexes. You can learn anything from needlepoint, spinning fibers, crochet, knitting, canning, cooking, baking, vegetable gardening tips, sewing, Quilting, preserving, and freezing. Along with being a one stop shop for all these categories. The motto of my business is “making yesterday’s talents, today’s traditions”. My goal is to find a link between the past and the present to bring families of all generations together. while also providing skills which will come in handy for the rest of one’s life.

Fall Leaf hotpad

Hello everyone. Today i am going to talk about a pattern written by Susan Lowman. She is very talented and writes amazing pattens in "wiggly" crochet. This is the 2nd hotpad of her that I am doing. the first one was a watermelon hotpad.

I am in a pot holder swap through ravelry. I am taking the opportunity to do this swap and to focus on new skills. If you have a ravelry, feel free to add me, my ID is haleyjune102005.

To view the Watermelon hotpad i have completed, visit this link. if you have any problems viewing, please let me know. :)

You may also view my progress on the fall leaf hotpad by visiting here.

Wiggly crochet is defined by adding a ruffle to a open mesh or a basic mesh. I found this

Now after working on the watermelon hotpad, i found it easier to put 10 Double crochet on each bar instead of 5 on the bar and 5 in the corner. This is my own personal preference. But i can not tell the difference in the finished product. Feel free to comment and ask questions. I absolutely love these patterns. I am thinking about writing the designer and telling her she needs to make some grape ones... I need some for my kitchen :D
