Dragon Alert

I just listed this commercially made dragon on my website, Hidden Ridge Road. He is approximately 5 inches tall, and looks pretty ferocious. But don't worry, he won't really bite you!



Blessings and Peace.

Bright Potholders


Today I listed these in my TurtleTreasures shop. They are crocheted with cotton yarn and will brighten up your kitchen during this cold winter.
I'm excited about listing a few crocheted items. I learned sewing from my mom, and crocheting from my grandmother. It gave me a lot of pleasure to make the many granny square afghans for friends and family members as Christmas gifts when I was younger. As I got older, I got more involved with other crafts, but I always kept yarn and crochet hooks around. It is my comfort craft!!
Crochet has taken a new role in my life more recently. I belong to a crochet group in my church. We make prayer shawls and lap blankets for members of our congregation who have suffered a loss or are going through some health challenges of their own. This group consists of some wonderful ladies, and when I joined, a group of ladies laughing and crocheting was just what I needed in my life.
All crocheted items made with extra love!!
Blessings and Peace,
Jill
