April To Do: Crochet

Crochet is my newest hobby since last summer, and so I’ve been pinning free patterns and tips. I’ve been thinking that it would be a good idea to start collecting these in a Journal so I can work on them off line. I absolutely love the Tangible Plans, so addicted to them. I haven’t posted the other ones I’ve done yet because I’m making them into a hybrid book, but I’ve made a ton of  pages so far!
