What a crazy two and a half years I have had. I will spare the details, but I'm sure you could say the same thing about your life. We all have crazy times we could share with the world. But is that the only thing you focus on?
There is a saying, "You become your surroundings." So have you looked around lately to what your surrounded with?

Remember this cute Crochet Pattern – Doll Baby in a Blanket?
Found the Free Pattern online years ago (in several versions) then it disappeared along with so many others. Suspect the original design idea is from the 40′s. For ease of use compiled the different versions into one PDF document. Have posted here and on Ravelry for access to all who are interested. Currently the designer is listed as unknown – if you know the name/s send me a note and will update the pattern.

Till next time – have a great year. /;)
