My Life: Crochet with a baby

I love my babies and I love crochet.  I love breastfeeding, but it takes so much of the day that if I sacrificed my stitching time while nursing, I’d almost never be able to crochet.  Thus, this is what often happens. Be sure to subscribe on youtube and sign up for my newsletter to find […]
