A 30-Minute Earring to Crochet
The 8th piece in my 30-Minute earring series is what I was working on when a monstrous flood hit our city, devastating everything in our little house. Originally, I crocheted it using shades of beige, but that got lost in the mud that was left by the flood.
There was no electricity that night due to the storm signal. But I kept crocheting in flickering candlelight and that's what saved us from spending the night shivering in our wet clothes.
Thanks be to God for using crochet to save my family!
