I started knitting at age 8 and learned all the rest as I went along - crocheting, sewing, tatting, latch hook, macrame, quilting, needlepoint, leather work, and woodworking. I became a professional seamstress and got into quilting big-time. These days, I mostly concentrate on knitting, crocheting, needlepoint, quilting, and woodworking. I began doing my own designing when I was laid up in a full leg cast. Since then, I have created over 200 of my own designs in various mediums, the patterns for which I sell everywhere and anywhere. I decided to sell my patterns individually, since I hate to have to buy an entire book to get the one or two that I want.
I do sell some hand-made items from my own designs, including woodworking items made by myself, at:
I think that this is kind of a cut and unique idea which I had. The kids can play with the puppet until it is time to crown the tree with the topper. Mrs. Claus is appropriate for the top of the tree, since she is really the one who "oversees" Christmas. She is meticulously designed, with a separately made hat. The tree topper is made with a a small hook for extra stiffness.
Mrs. Claus measures about 9-1/2" high.
Be sure to check out the rest of the Christmas designs in my shop, as well as other original crochet, needlepoint, quilt, and knit patterns. I add new listings all the time.
All of the designs which I sell are my own and are copyrighted. Painstaking attention has been paid to the instructions, to ensure that they are clear, accurate, and easy to understand and follow.
