About Me

snapchat has the best filters right?

I’m a work in progress 💜

A little about me – I have a great sense of humor, appreciate kindness, and grateful for every day.  I’m no spring chicken, but certainly not fully cooked either! 🙃

I hope you find inspiration here.  Learning to crochet is a journey, and I am here to help you learn.  I love to collaborate with other creators, yarn companies, and bloggers, so please feel free to send me a message, I’d love to work with you.

Teaching is a passion of mine too.  I’d love to pass along this skill to as many people possible. Crochet is for all ages, and I strive to combine old techniques with the new to create exciting designs, like my crochet VANS slippers.  I saw a lot of converse out there, but I like VANS ;).  So I had to make them up <3.

The story of how I learned to crochet.

When I was a little girl, my grandmother had this plastic 70’s table-cloth. It had yellow and orange flowers, with hints of that avocado green speckled throughout it. It also had yellow fringe tassels around the entire thing. I would sit there and braid the tassels. Endless hours of braiding tassels. One day, my grandmother said “if you want to do something with your hands, let me teach you to crochet.” So we sat down and she started teaching me. I fell in love with it.

A few years ago I was house-bound taking care of my elderly father, he was quite sick and couldn’t be left alone, or be taken out of the house much either.  I picked up grandma’s hooks, bought some yarn, and started crocheting again.  Because I was a full-time caregiver, I wondered if there was a way to bring in some extra money using this wonderful craft.

I tell you what – I was so happy to discover there was!  Pattern writing :).  First, I started writing down steps while I was crocheting, then began studying how to write patterns, and from there I blossomed into a full-fledged crochet designer/blogger.

I’ve met so many wonderful people, crafters, and fellow designers.

While I was taking care of my father, I was also working on a graduate certificate in Bioinformatics.  I recently completed that certificate and my father passed last year :(.

Although I am grateful to be finished with school, ironically – all I want to do is design, design, and design more…go figure!

When I am not crocheting, designing, or making how-to videos – I skate.  I mean, I skate a lot….

weeeeeeeeee!!

I’m always here to help you learn. and so happy to help, so please send me a message if there is something you want to talk about or learn. I look forward to meeting you!

Contact me…for learning, yarn company collabs, and just to say hi!

  2. Hi. I bought a vintage pattern that uses a puff stitch flower motif for the baby blanket. For the first time in 50 plus years that I’ve been crocheting the pattern instructions have me stumped. Is there a way you can make a tutorial to help me. I am making it for a good friend who is having a baby girl next month. She saw the pattern and fell in love
