One good thing about crochet: You do not need power tools to do it. No need to concern yourself with cutting off  your fingers, like  with stained glass or making birdhouses. Though you can do exactly that: 

 

Another  good thing is: You can tote most your work along and do it ANYWHERE: doctor’s offices, at work, at lunch, in bed, on the bus, in the car, at the ball park, on the playground……………

You can do crochet at ANY TIME. You just pick up your yarn and hook – no set up required, no messy stuff to clean up (except if you design patterns like I do. I make a huge mess by the time I have a pattern together – half my yarn stashes are everywhere comparing colors, stitches samples.  Stuffing flies through the entire work space. Every hook is out of the case )

ANYBODY can do it: All you do is make some loops and BINGO: you have a crochet fabric. There are only 4 basic stitches, which repeat themselves in different ways to make different designs.

I leave you with this thought: To my knowledge, there is NOT ONE machine invented that can crochet.

So if humans do not do it, it will not get done. It will be YOUR fault if the world misses out on your talent to make this world a better pace. I cater to beginners and am always available to help you with any project. We can meet over Google Hang out and get things done!

The crochet bride, who is even more frugal than I am

This is the coolest thing and she is absolutely beautiful and as hard to beat as it is: even more frugal than I am. Her absolutely stunning dress cost $30.

http://www.vancitybuzz.com/2014/09/meet-bride-whose-crochet-wedding-dress-photos-went-viral

When our youngest daughter Joy  got married to my Mennonite/ Amish decent son in law, there were no decent wedding dresses to be had anywhere. Finally she chose a satin one with beads and sequences, high enough to show no cleavage, but it had bare shoulders.  I sewed the sleeves and embroidered the beads and frills like on the original dress . It will just not do to go shoulder free and marry an Amish dude, though his parents left that religion behind and follow Jesus when he was 6 years old. All grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins are still Amish and Mennonites.  We were really happy they were willing to come to an “English” wedding. I am actually more German than they are, though we ALL are American. But that is what the Amish call all of us: “English”. We had an awesome wedding and a beautiful “decent” virgin bride with very little  money spent.
