Crocheting Outdoors

Up until today, I have been able to crochet outside on my screened-in porch. It has been so beautiful outdoors lately, and I have been trying to enjoy every single minute of it! But today, even in the sun, it was cold! The temperature said it was 66 degrees, but it sure did not feel like it. What a difference it can make in the temperature when the wind blows. So I did not crochet outside today! I wonder how many more days I am going to be able to crochet outside on my porch?

The temperature is supposed to go down to 36 degrees tonight. I am not ready for this to happen yet! Actually, I am never ready for this to happen, but since I have moved to New York, I have not had much choice! lol

I am working on a snowman bib that I think is going to be very cute…..at least I hope it turns out to be cute! It is supposed to be published on-line. If and when it is, I will post a link to it.

>New Patterns

>As promised, I am slowing trying to move some of the free patterns from my old geocities website. I have uploaded a couple of new ones recently. You can view them at: Crochet Cafe Patterns.

As usual, almost all of my patterns are quick and easy to make!
I haven’t been able to do much posting lately of the crocheting that I am doing! When I am working on new crochet designs for other editors or publishers, I can’t show photos of my work. As soon as I start working on self-published designs again for my own website at: Cute and Country Crochet, I can show you a few progress pictures!
