Announcement    Welcome!
I offer custom made crochet items as well as patterns for both crochet and cross stitch.
The cross stitch patterns are made using a computer program. I have been cross stitching for 28 years.

My crochet patterns are designed by me with hook and yarn and a lot of trial and error. I add more patterns as I design them. Although I have been crocheting most of my life, I only began writing my own patterns a few years ago.

All crocheted items are hand crocheted by me, with over 40 years of experience behind every stitch and hours of work going into each piece. Most of my items are custom made when you order, but I do have a few that are ready to ship. When you order a custom piece, please note the time frame given until it will ship. This time allows me to get the yarn you choose, which sometimes has to be shipped to me, and to create your one of a kind item, which, in many cases, can take days or weeks.
If you don't see what you're looking for, send me a message and I'll see what I can do!

About

My art, my crafting addiction

I learned to crochet at age six, taught by my mother and grandmother. That was over 40 years ago. I've been crocheting and cross stitching through, to date, 27 years of marriage, the raising of two sons, and several cross country moves; some because of the Army and some not.

I was told for a long time that I should sell my work, so when I discovered Etsy, I took that advice. I love that I can share my work with others!

Many of my creations are based in the designs of others, these very talented designers make my life easier, but some of the designs are mine.

All of the crochet patterns are created by me. The cross stitch patterns I have created with a computer program. I will make custom cross stitch patterns upon request; however, some pictures simply do not convert into patterns well. I cannot make very small patterns and some pictures will only make good patterns if the patterns are quite large. If you request a custom pattern, I will run the photo you email me through the program and make it the best I can. I will then send you a screenshot of the result and info on the pattern size. If these, and my price, are acceptable to you, I will then create a listing just for you.

The pictures in my shop aren't professional quality, I know, but I work with what I have. Everything I make, however, is of the best quality...it doesn't leave my hands unless it is! And every picture is of an item I, personally, have made.

Please feel free to contact me about anything. If you don't see what you're looking for, that doesn't mean I can't make it! Send me a message and I'll see what I can do!

    I have been crocheting for over 40 years, since my grandmother first handed me a hook when I was 6. I began to cross stitch when a college friend taught me nearly 30 years ago. I am so happy to be able to share my art, and addiction, with you!

Frequently asked questions
Returns

Before any item may be returned, I must receive photos of the item. Original shipping costs will not be refunded and the cost of shipping it back to me is the buyers responsibility.
Refunds will only be issued if the item is returned in it's original condition, if the buyer contacted me within 3 days of delivery, and if it was shipped back within 7 days of its delivery to the buyer.

Color differences

Please keep in mind, not all devices will show colors the same. If you order something ready to ship and you want to be sure of the color a please message me and I'll do what I can to provide you with an accurate representation.
If you want a custom order, I will discuss the specifics of your order with you, in detail, until you are satisfied and won't start work until then.
Once you are satisfied with the color as shown or described and agree, refunds based on color will not be accepted.

Custom and personalized orders

Unless the item you purchase is already made and ready to ship, it is considered custom made even if you didn't use the "request a custom order" button, and is, therefore, not eligible for return or exchange.

Patterns

If you are looking to purchase a pattern, which is an instant download, and you have ANY questions, PLEASE ask me first! Once you purchase the pattern, there are absolutely NO refunds.
I am happy to answer any questions, even if it means you decide not to purchase from me. I would much rather lose a sale than have an unhappy customer!
