I have been a little sick last weeks and to keep me busy I decided to try something I had never done before:  Crochet.

My problem is that I am a lefty and to find someone to teach me has been always very difficult. So I decided to learn and teach myself to crochet like a right handed person would do....I found some good tips and ideas on this page Crochet Pattern Central.
Another good website is Crochet Cabana

I tried the single, half double, double crochet. After a while I had made a big square...I didn't want to trow it away or just let it sit there (although you can see I made a lot of mistakes on the sides)
So I decided I could make a little bag...

This is how it came out:
I sewed a big orange button on it 
Happy Girl
My daughter loved it...

Spring Craft Sweepstakes

A while ago there was a sweepstakes on ParentsConnect and we participated with some of the activities I have shown you here on my blog. ....And guess what? We WON!!! 

The activity that won the price was Button Caterpillar!

Take a look at the website! It is very nice site where you will meet a lot of moms with the same interests and it has a lot of information and activities.
