Queen Size Bed Cover

Hi everybody,
Just a little note today to share my bed cover. The reason it looks so massive like a field or meadow is because it is!

It's for our queen size bed. I started it January 25th and my goal was to finish it in one month. Hah! I'd say I'm almost half way. It's a very easy pattern I'll post when this is finished. Maybe another month?

Free-Priscila Hewitt Crochet Book

Hi everybody,
I've referred to Priscilla Hewitt before. She's in my sidebar and I did a tutorial on her "gripper towel holder". So today I clicked her in my sidebar looking for something and I can't even remember what it was because up jumped something new! If you have an iPad, just click her name in my sidebar and you can download her
650 page, 33 chapter, 200 patterns, FREE BOOK!
It's so beautiful and well organized with such a variety that only a veteran crocheter could bring together and present so well. And did I say it's FREE?
Thank you Pricilla, with all my hooks.

She has joined with designer Carola Herbst to bring this event to us. If you would like to join in the fun, go to Wink's blog for a 12% discount on the pattern. Then, be ready for Monday.

I've been wanting to try this method of overlay crochet, but kept kept putting it off. With a CAL, I'm twice as excited! Hope to see you there.
