Video summary: Here's the cover that will be in a Disney Movie! It's called "Hollywood Stargirl" and it's a sequel to "Stargirl," which was based on a young adult novel by Jerry Spinelli. I'm told that it will be seen at the beginning of the movie on Stargirl's mom's jeep as they arrive for their new life adventure in Los Angeles. (Uma Thurman will be the mom!)

A Snake, A Hook and an Art Teacher

My grandmother taught me to crochet at a very early age. Through the years I would pick up the art of crochet time and again, but never with the zeal that I have for it now. Maybe I should attribute my passion for crochet to the snake.

Yes. I said snake. On July 4, 2005, I was bitten on my foot by a copperhead snake in my own front yard. Long story short: I spent weeks recuperating. Since all I could do was stay off my leg, I had to keep my brain and hands engaged. I'm an artist, and the need to be productive was driving me... So I took up crochet again. And I haven't stopped since. I'm obsessive in my need to create something new each day. Crochet is one piece of the puzzle that makes me who I am. I look back on that fateful Fourth of July night, and I'd have to say; the copperhead did me a huge favor!

Putting all snaky thoughts aside…. My “day job” is being art teacher to my wonderfully creative K-5 students. As an artist and teacher, I fully believe that art does not stop at the canvas or the drawing board. It's all around, even in the shape of yarn. I view crochet as a sculptural medium. The shapes, textures, patterns, colors!!! So much to work with and so many wonders to create!!! I approach each new creation as an art project and I hope you'll enjoy the aesthetic nature of my creations.

In addition to Threadmill, I also own a pattern shop: crowshadecreations.etsy.com
Hope you'll stop in and take a look.

    As an artist, I'm captivated by the sculptural aspect of crochet. I feel powerful with hook and yarn in hand. I'm obsessed by the need to create. Sometimes I dream of yarn. And it's always colorful.
