Welcome! I'm Sheila. I've crocheted since I was about 11, and I've been designing for over 20 years now. I started after my eyes lost the ability to jump quickly back and forth from pattern to work. I started doing my own thing and never looked back!
The vast majority of my work is in thread crochet, although I do enjoy my yarns too. I love to design 3D crocheted objects that are accented by my jewelrymaking hobby, too. I also enjoy creating accessories and winter warming objects like afghans, unique scarves, etc.
My patterns are sold to support the needs of my Miniature Schnauzer rescue dogs. We operate as Sheila's Schnauzies, a nonprofit organization and currently have four furkids here. We all appreciate your support!
If you'd like to see my crochet theme artwork printed on things like t-shirts and tote bags, stop by http://www.cafepress.com/Schnauzies.
I do offer quite an extensive selection of free patterns at http://www..hubpages.com/hub/sheilaschnauzies. There you'll find a complete index of my free patterns.
Thanks for coming by! Happy Crocheting,
Don't you hate throwing cash in the trash for those expensive duster refills?
Well, I did, so I designed two little things I call the Spiffers(c). They come in two styles; one for the floor duster, and another coordinating one for the hand duster. Both of those patterns are included here!
The Spiffer(c) mop refill attaches to your "you-know-what" mop with those little fluffy stitches that you see. You simply pop an adjacent one into the hole on your mop on each corner, and you're mopping! You can, of course, use this wet or dry.
The Spiffer(c) duster refill slides right onto the "forks" of your "you-know-what" duster handle.
It's a great idea to have lots of them made up in your favorite colors so you can always have a clean one ready to go! Make them to match your decor, or in white if you like to bleach your cleaning things as I do.
Crochet a set up and you'll not only use up your cotton scrap yarn, you'll have a permanent duster refill that can be bleached, machine washed and dried over and over. Now, how cool is that! Cleaning doesn't get any "greener" than this!
Oh and just one more thing -can you imagine making a wedding or housewarming gift basket including a set of these mop and duster refills in the recipient's favorite colors? Fun!!
