Springtime in Scappoose

Designed by Bonnie Pierce and Friends © 2000 
 This square was a group project made during the Oregon/Washington get together to celebrate National Crochet week.  We each made a round, and then passed it to the person on our right, and so on.  This was my favorite!  Round 1 was made by Sharil Snyder.  Round 2 was made by Bonnie Pierce.  Round 3 was made by Kevin Hoffman.  Round 4 was made by Connie Hoffman and Round 5 was made by Ellen Fentress.  We donated our new creations to Connie's Comfortghan bank.
