My hands can do these --- Zoe Pouches
THE BIRTH OF ZOE POUCHES
I was inspired to design these pouches for my only granddaughter who was born after several years of marriage of my elder daughter. I named these pouches after her and thought of having her use these pouches when she grows up. I did these projects while I was in a motel waiting the whole day for my husband to arrive after a hard day's work. He always works in an out-of-state job as a welder. They are my first crochet projects. This is one of the reasons why I started this blog. Some of these are featured in my crochet designer's profile at All Free Crochet.
I also initially uploaded only 6 of these projects to HGTV (03/23/2014) and look what my projects got! This is really great – (1st rating – outstanding; 2nd rating – good; 3rd rating- fair …..). I tried to paste a screenshot to show the first rating, but technically the screenshot extended outside the right border of my website. Unlike the screenshot I copied from All Free Holiday Crafts, as shown in my About Us page, it is well-aligned with the borders. I couldn’t do anything to fix it technically, so I deleted it. The one modeling the All Summer Zoe Pouch and Sweet Candy Zoe Pouch, is my own beloved granddaughter. I was criticized for posting these projects, but criticisms can’t put me down. Sorry for being emotional (‘.’) but I really cried upon seeing these ratings because I got worried that HGTV might ask me to remove the photos due to one viewer’s criticism. Actually, I also have another controversial crochet project, Child Bathing Suit, which was featured on All Free Crochet. I was also criticized for posting this project and really got negative criticisms. Whatever ratings these projects will get, I will still appreciate it. The reality is no one can’t please everybody. Each one is entitled to his or her opinion and I just respect them. Thank you very, very much to all viewers (-.-)
