#238 Flower Child Crochet Dishcloth – Maggie Weldon Maggies Crochet


FRIDAY AUGUST 26, 2011
Designer Vickie Ashworth wrote: “I taught myself to crochet when I was twelve years old by watching my mother. She would sit in front of the TV crocheting and I would watch her and then copy her and do it myself.  Even though my first love is sewing, I’ve been crocheting afghan, baby dolls and anything else for years.  The quilts, bags, baskets and pillows I make are sold at craft shows around the area.  I’m originally from Maryland and eleven years ago moved to North Carolina.  I’ve been married for 34 years to John and we have two children and four grandchildren.”
