God & Paula’s Designs
by Paula Thomas
My mother taught me to crochet when I was 8 or 9. I love crocheting and making all kinds of pretty things made out of yarn. I crochet all kinds of stuff with God’s help. Crochet means a lot to me. I love crocheting, it relaxes me. I have lot’s of pretty yarn and have so many ideals in my head to make. This is some of the stuff I make. Bible Markers of all colors. Bag holder’s made in different colors. Baby blankets, holders for hair bows, crochet picture frames, crochet scarfs different size’s. I would love to have my own craft shop some day.
With God’s help I can make beautiful crocheting things with my hand’s. I love doing it and making things to sell. The things I make God put’s them there. Without God’s helping hands I couldn’t make the pretty things I make. Crocheting is a big part of my life. I love doing it. I do not work, so I crochet a lot. If I have to go somewhere and sit, I make special little bags to take. A bag of yarn, crocheting needle and a pair of scissors. You will find some bags handing just in time to go. Crocheting is a big part of my life. I am so blessed to be able to crochet and make beautiful things with the arthritis in my hands. As starting out so young in crocheting over the years I have made so many beautiful things. My first thing my mother taught me to make was a crochet pot holder. Today I am making all kinds of beautiful stuff. I am glad my mother taught me to crochet, cause I love it.
