I'm not good at sitting still. I think it's the crafters malady that time not spent accomplishing something feels wasted. I taught myself to crochet at age 22 when mononucleosis forced me to rest more than I was willing to. So I bought a "how-to" book and enough yarn for the first project and two hooks.

I also don't like wasting things. I often carry "Bits and Ends" creations. I have just as much fun making those projects, but I put much less planning into them. It makes me happy when something that was slapped together with leftovers makes a person smile, and then proceeds to be useful.

I'm delighted to now offer crochet patterns of my designs! This was an exciting goal for 2009, and surprisingly sucessful!

I'm always happy to answer questions, take better pictures, or offer advice. Don't hesitate to contact me!

Be Warm,
Celeste
