Last week I received the receiving end of my swap - and I love it!! Thanks aethelberga, you are the best! First off, I got a beautiful wall hanging made of fabric.

It's a day of celebration - of jubilance - for the constant irrational number that is: the circumference of any circle divided by its diameter. Good times. In… Continue reading Pi Guy!

I just made it because I love the Saturn V! I mean it's so cool! It was just so much rocket.… Continue reading Crochet Saturn V
