Hello! I would like to thank Millie and Kristina for the invite and the special time to share with fellow yarnies!
My name is Sara and I live in Florida. I live with my parents and my sister. I have a loving fiance and a future wedding to plan for this year!

I was born in Santiago Chile, and we moved to Florida in 1987. I was raised in the English language, but I’ve been slowly learning more Spanish again. We are a creative family, from writing to art and music. I love singing and playing guitar at my church and other events, with my sister backing me up with vocals and piano. 

But we are talking about crochet today, so let me start with my story…
I started crocheting when I was in college in 2008. It gave me a break from my classes. It also helped me through the difficult time in my life. I was recovering from a boat accident, and my life was drastically changed. I decided to go back to college to finish my bachelors degree, and I brought my crocheting with me. Luckily I found a group of lovely yarnies on campus, and we all loved to hang out at the local tea shop every Thursday. Crocheting really help me through that difficult time in my life, and it taught me to be more creative.

I also started writing in my blog around that time, called Content in the Meantime. I write about many different topics, but mostly about crocheting. I have a few patterns on my Ravelry and my blog, but they are mostly modifications from other free patterns that I have wanted to improve. I hope to write my own patterns in the future but right now I enjoy sharing my work and sharing with others. 
I also host a blog hop on my blog called What Are You Doing? Blog Hop. This is a monthly blog hop where you can share anything you have written about in your blog for the month. I love reading other people’s blogs, and it keeps me motivated to write in my blog too! I’ve been so busy lately with wedding planning, but I try my best to keep up with the blog hop as look at as many blogs as possible. I hope you get a chance to share your posts!

I also have an Etsy shop called Hand Craft Love. I created this shop to share many different kinds of crafts that I pick up over the years. Right now though it has crocheted items.
