I plan to make one of Mom's heart-shaped crocheted rugs, so I am following the patterns directions. I mean seriously! I made a crocheted rug before, but I never ironed the strips I'd torn from 7 yards (14 total) of quilting fabric. The ball above took 5 hours.
Now I am working on the light ball of fabric "yarn."
I bought a lovely "Sunshine" bouquet for brighten up the house. And, of course, wherever I am, there is Joe (on top of one of my crocheted rugs-the no iron type).
