    I like working on simething light. Here in south Carolina, it’s just too hot to work on afghans & sweatets. I usually try maybe a livht lacy shawl design, or more likely, a large filer crochet tapestry. Either wzy, thete is ALWAYS a project of soe kind at hand. I cant sit still or watch TV without something.to do with my hands!

  2. Toni Salard says:

    I like to make light weight tops and jewelry.

  3. MESHELL Miller says:

    I like to crochet hair things and cat beds

  4. Anita Prater says:

    I have collected patterns to make clothes for 8 naked Barbie dolls I purchased at a local thrift shop. I just have to budget the money to get the yarn/thread to make them. Winning this would free up money to buy accessories to go with the outfits.

  5. Linda Darden says:

    I usually work on smaller items like hot pads, coasters, stuffed animals, etc. because I’m on the go watching my grandkids sporting events. If I’m home by myself, I like to paint.

  6. Becca Riley says:

    I like making little toys, stuffed animals, and hair things in the spring. I also try to get a head start on things for the winter, but I don’t often get very far.

  7. Margaret missisian says:

    Love to make little appliques for the grandikids shirts

  8. I love to work on crochet. Right now I am working on a purse, a Bernat Crochet a Long Blanket and a shawl. I have so many projects in mind it’s crazy

  9. Joan Barnes says:

    I love crocheting wrap bracelets!

  10. Janet Cobb says:

    Anything! I have been known to crochet an afghan as a Christmas gift in the spring or even summer! Here in eastern NC where I am the season doesn’t really matter as far as crafting projects.That’s why we have AC! So I crochet, cross-stitch, make cards, jewelry, whatever, anytime the inspiration hits!

  11. Lynn Weckbacher says:

    Starting my crochet projects for Christmas presents.
