Hi guys, I do hope someone will post a picture. I have been crocheting for almost 30 years! I learned after I went blind at the age of 7. It took some time, but I love it. I have a computer that talks to me and I do more typing than my husband! I will post more as I can.

Thanks for posting a pattern. I wish I could do that too, but I guess I'll just settle for crocheting! Like I said, they are samll, but then I love small things. I like dressing tiny stuffed animals, and so far, the smallest thing I have ever dressed is a tiny baby doll on her tummy. she is about 2 inches long. I do panties and a dress out of crochet thread.
