Introducing the Everlasting Crochet Terrarium!

It’s time for June’s Designer Showcase! I like to wrap up each month by having one of my fellow designers share a bit about themselves, and then I follow it up by sharing my 5 favorite free patterns that they’ve designed!

But I’ve brought it back for June so I can share some of the lovely designs from the talented Lauren Brown – blogger and designer behind Daisy Cottage Designs!
