There is no gift I treasure more than one that is handmade with love. At some point through the years each of my family members and friends have received something crocheted from me. After awhile people started asking me to make handmade items for them-not only to keep, but also to give away themselves!
My first crochet lesson was with an older lady in our community when I was 8 years old. I remember learning the basic stitches and spending a lot of time practicing in class, but at the time I was drawn to other hobbies and didn’t spend much time crocheting for several years. When I was about 13 something sparked a curiosity to pick up the needle again and see what I could create. I have had a crochet project or two in the making ever since!
By the request of friends and family members I decided to reopen shop on etsy to share my creations with others. Many are originals I have designed and I’m always experimenting with new ideas for custom orders. I love seeing things my friends have made too, and a few of the pieces in my shop are hand knit by them!
Friends are always asking me what I’m working on, so in this blog I will share pictures of my current projects, stories behind them, and post any free patterns I can for other crochet artists. To subscribe to my posts and receive email updates when I share new projects, click Follow on the right.
To contact me about ordering items, please send me a message through Etsy. Thank you for visiting my blog and for your comments!
