I'm a girly-girl in the extreme. I love pretty colors, soft textures, and anything that sparkles. So my idea of a good crochet project is a fun, feminine, flirty piece that feeds the fashionista in me!
I design and crochet things I want to wear or use in my life, and I hope you'll love them too!
I started crocheting in 1979 when an extremely patient, saint-of-a-woman taught me and ten or so other 8-year-old girls to crochet for our Bible School craft project. Somehow, that teacher retained her sanity and I retained a love for yarn.
I took to the hook and have been crocheting ever since, making everything from doilies, to baby clothes, sweaters and footies, hats and scarves. After 20 years, I abandoned patterns and started experimenting with my own designs. And that's how I ended up here. :-)

The coin purse is perfect for stowing change, or capture all those small items that float around inside your purse. You'll be organized and clutter free!
A skein makes two - three coin purses, so make one for you and give the others away! Your sisters and girlfriends will love getting these as gifts for birthdays and Christmas. They're great for craft sales too!
