I enjoy visiting Rebeckah’s Treasures and seeing what she’s been up to. Rebeckah, the owner, is extremely talented, kind, honest, generous, knowledgeable, a great friend, and I enjoy getting to chat with her. She is willing to share her knowledge with others, shares other crochet designer’s projects, help out when she has the time, and much more.

Right now, I am in love with my Grape Ape Monkey. She’s purple, so that might have a little something to do with it and she’s stinkin’ cute! Plus, she’s a free pattern to boot.
