Purse Party Favor/Key Chain and…

12 Apr
The 12th of another month is here, and that means it’s time for another one of my original patterns for you.  But I’ll get back to that in a minute.  I need to mention something very important being the day it is…
 
April 12 is a very special day around here, because it is the day I married the man of my dreams, and my best friend!  So I just want to say Happy 26th anniversary and I love you more now than I did then, and I thought I loved you a lot back then. :)  Thanks for being there for me always…through EVERYTHING!!…you are truly an amazing man!
 
I’d like to mention one other thing, while you’re patiently reading through for the free pattern.  We have started an online radio station.  It’s definitely family friendly…there is music in all kinds of styles for all ages up there, and I thought I’d let you know about it, in case you’d like to check it out.  Just go to:
 
Okay, back to the original crochet pattern I have for you this month…thanks for indulging me for a moment or 2 while I mentioned those 2 things there.😉
 
May 13 is Mother’s Day, and I thought May 12 would be cutting it too close, so I thought this might be a perfect little accessory, or addition to whatever gift you might be giving to a special mom or mom figure in your life.  I hope you like it…
