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 have always been fascinate with ancient Egypt and one year I came up with the idea to crochet some Egyptian Christmas ornaments. This cute little filet crochet cartouche is one of the results. I also hang them all over the house as conversation pieces. They are stiffened with sugar starch. The recipe is included in the instructions.
I do not just use them for Christmas. I also made a mobile and sometimes just hang them around the house for fun. I also have one hanging from the mirror in my car.
Be sure to check out those other crocheted Egyptian designs in my shop, as well as other original crochet, knit and needlepoint patterns.
All of the patterns which I sell are my own designs and are copyrighted. Painstaking attention has been paid to the patterns, to ensure that they are clear, accurate, and easy to understand and follow.
