Hello Friends, 

First I must apologize for the long delay between the last issues of the ezine. Some personal issues occurred and there was just no way to get the ezine out.

Well it looks like things are under control and getting back to normal.  So lets review what we have covered and than pick up where we left off.

Of course first, I want to welcome all the new subscribers also. Hope you all have a wonderful holiday.




Lets Review Issues

(1) Designate a space: an area not disturbed by family traffic

(2) Schedule: daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and yearly.  Time will slip by if you don't schedule.

(3) Work style: Assembly line style when ever possible. It will cut down many repeat steps.

(4) Screen calls: Concentrate on work just because you work at home doesn't mean your time isn't important.

(5) Supplies: Know what you have on hand and what you need. Keep a list going of supplies needed.

(6) Pricing: Know your bottom line. If you don't know how much you have invested in each piece you can't make a profit.

(7) Review sales: Track sales performance. Discontinue items not selling.


From the readers: 


I'm almost 50 and have been crocheting since high school. I knit a little too, but crocheting is my first love.

Back in the late 70's I received a gift of a small (fits in your hand) crocheted puppy. The puppy was flat (no legs)....and looked like it had been done in the loop stitch. It had felt ears and wiggle eyes. Does anyone know how to make this adorable puppy? My original is long gone!

Also, I'm making a baby blanket. Does anyone know how I can appliqué (using crochet) a duck to attach to the blanket?

Thank you so much! 



I have not seen this pattern but maybe some of our readers have and will let us know.
