    When I was 12 my family moved to Ottawa. While we were waiting to move into our home we stayed in a motel. I learned how to crochet from the maid who cleaned our hotel room. She would take her break in our hotel room, watch t.v. and teach me how to crochet Granny Squares. A few months later I found a book with various crochet stitches and patterns when I was snooping in my older sister’s room. In the book there was a pattern for a carnation flower. I was spellbound at how beautiful it was, and I had to try it! I was so proud of myself when I completed it…it was baby blue and perfectly round. I used it as a bow to decorate my mother’s Christmas present that year. I can’t remember what gift I gave her that holiday; but I will never forget the beautiful perfect blue carnation decorating it!
