Monday Makings and Crochet Pattern Review…

I can’t imagine a week without crochet!!!  This last week I have had many hours to sit and create… I love to design new projects and  one of my favorite things to design has been my Amazing Grace Series!!  I am working on the 8th pattern in the series, if you have been following then you know.. It is a Baby Blanket!!  If you are new to Beatrice Ryan Designs or don’t really know the back story of this Amazing Grace Series… I have dedicated these patterns to Breast Cancer Awareness and my dearest friend Sandra Kay Gilb who passed away in 2007 from this disease!  The same stitch pattern is used in all of the projects designed in the series..  Now that I have several patterns in the series, I have expanded my dedication to making these patterns for all cancer types and anyone who is suffering or recovering from a major illness.  My hope is that if you love one of these patterns,,, You might make and donate one of your projects to the cause!  These patterns are for personal use too and I hope you enjoy making some for yourself or as gifts!!

So,,, This week I am over half way done with the pattern and here is another quick peek!!  The Amazing Grace Baby Blanket!!
