Announcement   Welcome to my Shop! I offer my original crochet patterns, and hand crocheted shawls and other accessories.

Each crocheted item is handmade with care by me! All items listed are ready to ship. My original patterns are pdf files and are ready for immediate download.

Pattern design is the focus of my business, and the items I sell are most often created while I'm testing and designing my original patterns; therefore, I'm unable to take special orders. For this same reason, you can get a one-of-a-kind handcrafted item at a very reasonable price.

I have done my best to estimate correct shipping; however, any payment you have made for shipping that has a $2 or more difference from the actual shipping charge, will be refunded after your package is received.

Because my patterns are digital files, I do not offer refunds.

About

Wishes and dreams

First of all, let me explain my name. I got the moniker, Nancy Drew, through marriage. I’ll bet you didn’t know that the real Nancy Drew is a retired granny, who drives a red minivan, and the only mysteries she solves involve a crochet hook.

My love of crochet started over 50 years. I was taught by my mother, who was a threadie and made the most beautiful tablecloths. Actually, I don’t think there was anything she couldn’t crochet. I’ve always loved crafting and art. When I took an early retirement from a very stressful corporate job, I opened an art studio and taught painting for several years. When painting became my full time job, crochet was my way to relax. It still is today. I totally love it. I think you can say I’m obsessed.

I started publishing my patterns in May 2013, but I’ve been designing since I was a child making doll clothes. Inspiration for my designs comes from many places. I love flowers and nature, and those things are often featured in my designs. Sometimes it’s a beautiful skein of yarn or rich color that sends me off to the sketch pad.

Usually all my designs start the same way, with a sketch pad and swatches….lots of swatches. I have a daily planner with a monthly calendar and tabs for my project ideas and planning. I keep sketches and notes there, and save photos, magazine clippings, and anything else that catches my attention or inspires me. One thing I learned from painting is not to discard an idea too soon. Set it aside for a few days and come back to it later. Often when I come back, I find things aren’t really as bad as I thought, or the problems have an easy fix.

Designing has really deepened my love of yarn crafts. Sometimes I want to create my own design, and other times I want to relax and just crochet. I love that I can do both. I feel designing and crochet in general keep my mind young. As a granny, that’s important. Some people like video games, crossword puzzles, or Luminosity. Just give me a crochet hook and a lovely skein of yarn, and I’m good.
