"Queenofallcrafts" is now on Facebook. Be sure to hit the like button if you enjoy needlework and crafts, as I will be sharing links, patterns, WIP's (work in progress... yeah... I have a BUNCH! LOL!), finished items, and of course, some fun needlework humor! I'm hoping others will share photos of finished items using mom's patterns. How fun! =]

You can also find me on eBay! My husband and I enjoy going to local auctions, and estate sales. Sometimes I'm able to purchase entire "lots" of needlework treasures! Most of it gets listed there. New items are listed weekly. =]
