    Hi There, I love your work! I started a Crochet Free Patterns Directory! Come on over and add your free patterns links, if you have any you want to share or just take a look at others work! You only need to add your link so you will get all the credit! Just click on the submit pattern button on my directory site! Its in the beginning stages, but I know I can get it going with others contributing their patterns. I have been crocheting for years now and I have my other site Crochet Jewel which has many free patterns, but I wanted to start a directory for others to share on! Thanks http://www.crochetfreepatterns.net/


  10. What a great idea! Thank you for the invitation. It’s a wonderful site. I’m a bit slow on the computer, but will add a link very soon.
