Once upon a time I was a professional costume designer/builder. Then I met a boy. You know how that goes. Now I am a Stay At Home Mom in NJ. We have twin girls who were born in July '07. The artist in me can not stay still, and we could use more income, so here I am! I love creating knit and crochet patterns, sewing (obviously!), book making, well...creating just about anything.
We also have a creative hobby. In some of our free time we are Medieval Re-creationists.
You can learn more about me, and see lots of fun snaps of my children and other creations on my blog, ~or~ You can keep tabs on my creations on my facebook page, both are linked below with my other crafty pages.
Thanks for stopping by!
Here is a summer sun hat for you to make and enjoy! Keep safe and be fashionable, all at the same time. The slight stretch of the yarn helps keep the hat in place, even in the wind, and gives the brim a lovely look. I named this hat Shine On, as in Shine On You Crazy Diamond (by Pink Floyd) because of the diamonds. A sun hat with diamonds seemed to have no other possible name!
