Valentine’s Day – Free Crochet Calendar

Well, things are moving along with my Texas crochet book to be published by the end of the month. That’s the good news. The bad news is I haven’t had time for much else lately. For Valentine’s Day, though, I have a free heart eyeglass holder crochet pattern. He’s as cute as a button and can be finished in an evening.

The other good news (for you) is that I need to clear space in my craft room for the new books, so I’m offering the remaining stock of crochet calendars free to anyone who will pay for shipping (limit one per customer please) while supplies last.
