The Baby Groovyghan Cal From Zooty Owl Click Here to visit her blog! This was a 9 week CAL and most definitely worth the effort 🙂 I loved it simply for the variety in stitches and methods used to create this Groovyghan.

It is with no doubt similar to what can be found elsewhere. However it’s been modified so that it is easy to understand for me, and quick and easyRead More →
