    Tammy, you always manage to find interesting things to post about. So many great finds in this post. Thanks for sharing.

    I’m just dropping by to say “hi” and see what you’ve been up to lately. I hope all’s well with you.

    My big news: I recently gave birth to a baby girl, and I’m so excited! I’m hoping there will be lots of new baby crochet patterns in my future.

    Now I’m off to check out Connie’s new chart that you posted about; I’m a huge fan of her work.

    Take care,
