    Love your tutorials, you take your time and turn the work so you can see what’s being done. I’ve been trying to learn crochet for over 30 years, and am succeeding. Also want to learn how to knit and Tunisian crochet. Will be looking forward to your other tutorials. I also quilt, embroyder, sew, paint, bake, etc. Love homemaking!
