Hello, I'm Myra Ann Shaw, a self-employed crafter/designer. I love all the different types of crafts, but my first love is crochet. I taught myself to crochet about 12 years ago, and began my designing career about 2 years ago. I have a home based business where I sell a little bit of everything from crocheted afghans to quilted tree skirts. One of my favorite things to make are fridgies, can't ever have enough of them.
I also own a Crochet Mailing list online, which I share with my Sis Judi Verdinella. Our list it dedicated mainly to crochet, our love of chocolate and having fun. We talk about anything and everything, we share our lives, our loves, our sorrows and our pains. We are there for each other and we really do care. I hope you will stop by our Crochet Friends Home page and take a peek. We have some wonderful exchanges going on, plus some original patterns by our own CF members. We are so proud of the many talents of our crochet friends.. we even have started a poetry page, original poems by our members. We hope to see you soon!!
