Introducing MJM Crafts and Tutorial (Fridge Magnet Dress)

First of all I want to thank Marie for her kindness in inviting me to her "Beautiful Blog".

Hi, my name is Mari. I love to crochet, knit, and craft and I like to be constantly creating. My maternal grandma was a crocheter expert and she made beautiful crocheted designs. I am lucky to have inherited her love for crafting. I have been crocheting since I was a child.

I have been doing some flowers and pdf patterns pot holders, now I am creating beautiful coasters of fruit that you can see at my shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/MariMartin, flowers and other motives coasters coming soon, most of the items are made with 100% Acrylic Yarn for longer durability, wash ability, and better color stability, and other items are made with 100% Soft Cotton Yarn.
I'm happy with this new project… is so easy to create new things… just have to see nature and you will have new ideas, some days ago I was crocheting the coasters, and wanted to put something original, then in this moment a bee came in, and I said that's what I'm going to do to my coasters “a sweet bee”.
