The TNNA show is just about to be under way in beautiful Long Beach, CA. Stop by our booths to meet some of our team. I am sitting in my office, it’s about 30 degrees out and we are having an icy, snowy mix. There isn’t any sunshine in the forecast for days. I see that Long Beach is looking at 72 degrees and sun for today. Am I angry? No. Bitter? Well, no, but I am bitter cold. Jealous? Maybe, just a little. I have decided to work through my frustrations. It could be your lucky day in the While The Boss is Away at TNNA Giveaway! I have a Cleo kit to giveaway like the one in this picture. *Color may vary
This kit includes everything you need to create this masterpiece.
Pattern 2488, top only

Do you like to fish? Do you like to crochet? Do you like to crochet while your friends are fishing? Here’s your chance to be a master angler and come home with a fish every time! Your crochet hook is your rod and Galway is your line. There is no messy bait to contend with either!
This little cutie came across my desk via email the other day.
Wal, the tiny fish
His name is Wal and he is the brain child of the vary talented Stacey at freshstitches.com. For this tiny fish, she used about 60 yards of Galway in color 154 and just 5 yards of the white, color 8. After I met Wal, I visited the website and met lots of other cuties. You can purchase Wal and Stacey’s other “Amigurumi” patterns here. There are also free patterns available here.
Stacey loves to hear from her customers and you can reach her just about any way imaginable!
