As Independence Day draws close we tend to think of celebrations, cook outs, and fireworks! Crochet-a-longs are always fun and with the 4th of July looming on the horizon, I designed a doily I hope you like. For me, the design reminds me of something radiating outward – and freedom comes to mind. A commodity we all strive for in one form or another…
