About

I am a WAHM with a husband of 32 ears and 4 kids (and 3 grandkids, 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!
