Anne Maskell's Profile

About

Welcome to Stitching By Numbers. My name is Anne, and I LOVE patterns! This love was instilled in me at a very young age by my Mom. She could do anything with a needle or crochet hook, and had the patterns to prove it! I loved to watch her knit or crochet, and remember being amazed at the speed her hands flew. Other times I watched her at her sewing machine, hoping that one day I would be just as quick. And the patterns! I would spend hours pouring over knitting and crochet books, or gazing at sewing patterns. My mom is gone now, but I feel we will always be connected by our love for sewing and other handcrafts. And every time I see a new ( to me) pattern, I think 'hmm, I wonder what mom would have thought of this?' It brings a smile to my face every time.
If you are wondering about my avatar, it is a picture of my mom, modeling a costume from Royal Doulton of the figurine 'Southern Belle'…
