My crochet interest hasn't waned, and yesterday I completed my third small rug.
Decided to get on Google and look at more patterns. Say no more - there are great sites to download free patterns, and I also checked out a few of the crochet blogs.
Found a great one set up by a lady who is really into recycling.
Her site is myrecycledbags.com and there are great ideas, plus links to other topics.
Her crochet bag patterns made from plastic shopping bags look wonderful.
