Additionally, we've been turning the entire leaflet into a a convenient eBook that is immediately available as a download as soon as payment is received. For only $1.49 each, you can save the entire eBook to your computer's harddrive for easy access anytime you want it.

My favorite animal is my dog Karma. She is an energetic chow/husky mix we were lucky to get from our local Animal Protection League! And I love Drew's work!
I love making chemo hats that don't look like chemo hats. I can make a hat a night which keeps me busy, not eating, and leaves me with a great feeling of accomplishment. I don't donate them in bulk but rather give them out one at a time (or two if you can't make up your mind) at our local infusion center to the individual patients. I make no intrusion on them just - What's your favorite color?
I just received my first Purple Kitty newsletter and found it intriguing. I enjoyed viewing all the wonderful downloadable patterns, am always on the hunt for them, and now I have found a lot of new and interesting ones to try! There is so much information and tutorial that I am confident that I will find anything I will be looking for. I am also very excited about the monthly contests....good luck to all of us who entre!!
my favorite animal/pet is an iguana. i had one a few years ago and loved him so much. i would like to win this contest
I'm crossing my fingers and crossing my toes, wishing I will win.
LOOOOVE PURPLE!!!!!!! The after that I tend to crochet with earth tones.....
Although I am drawn to earth tones I also love red and Emerald Green.
ORANGE! Everything orange!
My favorite color is any shade of pink. I like almost every color to some degree but pink is my favorite. It is my youngest granddaughter's favorite color, too.
My favorite color is Blue. From Teal to Royal to powder.
