The perfect mommy img_6030-2 CROCHET BABY RUG FREE PATTERN AND INSTRUCTIONS crochet for your family    I started crocheting since the beginning of 2015. I have fallen in love from the very first day I tried it. It’s not an exaggeration, if you’re crocheting then you understand this very well.If you’re not, then try to ask someone who is crocheting to explain his(her) feelings towards this wonderful craft.I asked few women about their feelings when they crochet something for their kids or for someone dear to them and this is an excerpt from what they said:

  • Are there words to describe it? elation I guess pride, love.
  • I feel excited, warm, and always think if I’ve made someone happy with my creations then after I leave the world I’ll be leaving a mark as the lady, mom, grandmother etc. that loved to crochet.
  • When I create something and it’s actually enjoyed and used by someone, it makes me feel like the time spent making it was worth every minute. And their pleasure makes me happy.
  • I weave love into each stitch.
  • Elation.
  • Warm-hearted.
  • Joy.
  • Utter relieve.
