About Me

My Photo
I have been a crafter of all sorts for many years, and really love working with Paper and Threads. I am loving the design work I am doing now. I really seem to be getting back into my "art", even if I am doing it by computer now, instead of actually getting dirty while drawing. ;-) I have been avid about Thread Arts since I was a kid, learning to Crochet at 7, then Knit, Embroider, Needle Lace and finally Needle Tat. I love to design as well and am looking forward to taking the Needle Tatting that further step as well.

I'm a Freelance Designer here:

Here is the baby set I was telling you about before. 
Have you ever almost finished something only to see a boo-boo way back towards the beginning, rip it all out and almost be back to the same point only to find out that you were right the first time?  Doh!!  That happened to me while I was designing the bib pants to this set.  The set is done in the Afghan stitch (aka Tunisian Crochet) in DK yarn and is a toasty warm set for any 9-12 month old to wear when it is cold out.  The set can be worn over "regular" clothes as a "snowsuit" or worn by itself for when it is chilly but not cold out.  This pattern will be available on CUP after validation (sometime around midnight tonight, UK time)
Warm Winter Jacket & Bib Pants Set
The snowflakes are put on using the Duplicate stitch after the whole thing is made.

My next project is finishing a very old WIP.  I started a sweater for my mother yeeeears ago (no, don't ask...it is tooo embarrassing!)  I only have about 1/2 a sleeve to go and it will be done in time to give her for Christmas this year.
