Knowing that I love to crochet, my daughter's sister-in-law emailed me asking if I could make her some "barefoot sandals," and these past two weeks, that's just what I've been doing, which is a nice break from papercrafting for the moment. Besides it's an excuse to not only take a break from paper, but to crochet, and reason to off-load my abundance of mis-matched threads and yarn left overs just being stored in my closet. So I figured I'd show-off some of my creations that I doodled while watching some television. Such pretty feet!
