  1. They are sooo tiny! I am currently working with tiny grannies too, but they are one row larger than these. Yours are lovely.

  2. I have been doing up a lot of your patterns lately, and I just love them, and have been including links to your pages on my Facebook Group page, Daily Fiber. I was recently in an Antique mall and bought a huge trash bag full of these little wonders you call Granny's Daughter, at the time I had no idea what they were. It was only 5 bucks so I couldnt pass up buying it with dreams of making something with it, but I dont really know where to start. You mentioned sewing them together, but I would rather crochet them together. Do you have directions or a pattern somewhere that explains on how to crochet these little darlings together?? Thanks for any help you can give me! Happy Hooking!

  4. Thank you for using and sharing my patterns with your friends! And a big congrats on scoring those granny daughters, what a bargain!

    I'm sure there are other ways to join them, but this is the only pattern I know of that is free. http://www.quilt.com/Crochet/GrannysDaughter/AssembleMotifs.html
    I think it is fairly basic, I've seen similar ones in one of Vanna White's crochet books, and a Scrap Afghans book from Leisure Arts.

    There used to be another free pattern online, but it seems to be lost in cyberspace somewhere. If I happen to come across any others I will post here. :)

I don't, however, love to hear from spammers so I've had to turn on comment moderation. My apologies if it takes a little while for your comment to show up.
