Corinne writes:

“I truly do love to create things. I have been crocheting and knitting for many years. I was very fortunate to have my family members teach me the basics.  From there, I have worked on improving my skills through the many venues for learning fiber crafting. 

Back in 2010, I did a couple of craft fairs.  I had made so many projects that I needed to reduce some of my things. I was extremely excited about how well I did, and I decided shortly after to open up my own ETSY store.  I thought it would be fun, and there is nothing better than having someone love what I have made. I am so very fortunate to be a young grandmother raising my granddaughter. That old saying that “they keep you young,” is very true.

Box Stitch Crochet, by Corinne Freeman

Now, I am proud to be able to fuel my creative side in my first published book, which is truly a dream come true. My book is called Box Stitch Crochet, which is a stitch I was able to learn from a family member. Most of the time this stitch is used for Afghans or Baby Blankets, as the stitch works up quickly.  It’s great for new baby gifts. I like the fact that my book takes this stitch in a different direction, by focusing on making wearable items such as camisoles or shawls, along with other accessories. 

Thank you for reading this and have a wonderful day!  May your day bring you strength, peace, and joy with the positive things we all have in our world.
