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:
A touch of the exotic will grace your Christmas tree with this reed leaf hieroglyph ornament, or make it as a year-round magnet for your refrigerator. The design was adapted from the traditional Egyptian reed leaf hieroglyph. The ornament is made on 10-mesh plastic canvas with scraps of sport weight (if you do not have the sport weight, you can use worsted weight with one ply removed) and metallic needlepoint yarn. It has a separately made back, so you will not see those annoying knots and ends. It is one of a series which I have designed.
Be sure to check out the rest of the Egyptian designs in my shop, as well as the other original needlepoint, crochet, 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.
