Back to basix Crocheting

Oh look at me trying to be all hip with words! Basix. I’m never too advanced to take on beginner projects. I’ll refrain from being hip though. I’m too old for that. 30 is right around the corner. A few short years to yell at folks to get off my yard. I’m also going to … Read More
