Where/how did you learn crochet?
I learned how to crochet from my mother, Nanay Dora. She accepted orders since I was in elementary grade. Our house was full of crocheted items like curtains, doily, pillow case, our dining table, too. Also, I learned it from my aunties, my father side.

In 1960's to 1970's, almost all Filipino houses the curtains were crocheted, filet stitch. The famous designs were the peacock and the waterbearer that can cover the room doors and windows. I can vividly remember my Aunt Gloria and Aunt Menang exchanged patterns.

Why did you love to crochet? When I was young about 12yrs old my mother made a yellow pineapple dress she copied the design from Madonna Magazines that was the popular crochet mag at that time.

My mother was excited to finished my dress, when done, I detest wearing it because I was tomboyish that time. When I wore that dress ho my I was really a lady, which I didn't like. So, I exchanged it for another dress of my auntie Telly, her sister, which was really dissapointing on my mother's part. But, I didn't realize that time.

I started loving this craft when I was married already during my pregnancy days, I had 8, address the boredom.

I was seriously into crochet when Hubby was out of work, it helped us on our daily needs.
I produced crocheted ref towels and crocheted roses sold them by the dozens using still same acrylic yarns as today.

My most fave project that I did..was my Red pineapple top because it was a pineapple granny and it was fun to join the pineapple squares as I go...

Below picture was the output after frogging the shoulder and sleeves...


This was the original design but hubby didn't approved it...damn hahaha...the disadvantage of having a kj hubby!



Just until here, tomorrow I will be posting part 2...for I panicked about the Huawei Users News, for I am one of them.

I will secure first important keys and transfer maybe to hubby's laptop. Am using HuaweiY5 android phone.

Be back guys!
