I've been slowly ramping up on learning beading and wirework for the past four years or so. The projects are presented in more or less chronological order.
I got the chain stitch right away, but it took me two or three years of occasional practice to get past the chain stitch to do my first row of single crochet stitch. Once I had managed that, I undertook a sampler afghan of 48 squares each with a different pattern, based on a booklet called Bucilla Crochet Primer that was published in 1983. It took me about nine months to finish the squares, and I'm still working on putting them together over a year later.
This page also includes some other craft stuff.
