Please bear with me as I try to figure this all out.
My name is Rachel and I'm brand new to this. As if you couldn't tell. I wanted to try this out because, well, why not. I actually hate the word 'blog'...sort of the sound one of my dogs makes when she yarks. Charming way to start out, huh?
So, I live in Iowa with my husband of almost 23 years, our youngest son, three cats and two dogs. I love to crochet and cook. And read. I hate housework. Hate. My life is anything but exciting, but I am a pretty good cook and I make some very nice afghans and I really like to share. If it hadn't been for the sharing of information by others, I would never have gotten good at either cooking or crocheting, so I guess I would like to return the favor.
I know it's barely March, but here in Iowa, land of the endless snow, it's too nasty to do anything outside, so I thought I may as well be productive while I'm stuck inside. I have decided to make afghans for Christmas presents this year. My sister got one last year for her birthday, so that leaves hubby's family. That's five sibs (his mom got one year before last for Christmas).
I just got an order for another one that I will start on as soon as it's paid for. *I learned to never start a project until it's fully paid for. Otherwise I would be drowning in afghans and baby blankets.* This is why I started working on the presents so early. New orders always come in when I have something else I want to do LOL, but the things I 'want' to do don't put money in the bank. *sigh*
