Easter Enchantment Crochet Ebook Giveaway – Flower Easter Basket Pattern

Easter Enchantment Crochet Patterns Ebook

Wow! February in South Texas went out like a lion this year. The Snowpocalypse took us by surprise. Fortunately, our home made it through relatively unscathed other than a crack in the water softener line in the garage. Bruno really enjoyed playing in the snow. He doesn’t usually like the cold, so I was surprised to see him jumping around eating snow. https://www.tiktok.com/@myfingersfly/video/6929576274033691909?lang=en&is_copy_url=0&is_from_webapp=v2&sender_device=pc&sender_web_id=6936262251352638982
