About

I am a WAHM with a husband of 29 years and 4 kids (and a sweet little baby granddaughter now!). Upon her arrival into this world, my daughter inspired me to start crocheting and sewing again after many years of being an occasional crafter.

My 17 year long career in engineering has definitely influenced my 2nd career. Although everything I sell is hand-made by me, I do design with a manufacturing mindset.

In 2007, I started writing crochet patterns and selling them as ebooks. Much to my surprise, they have been a success! I know I am a bit slow in releasing new ones. I do apologize. It is a tedious process. Generally, after I design something new, I make it again, taking notes. Once I write the pattern, I make it again, incorporating corrections. Then, off it goes to two independent testers, which leads to more revisions. This, all in my "spare" time.

Most of what I used to have in this section is now in my "Shop Policies." Please read that before making a purchase. Thanks!
