My name is Cathy. By day, I am a bookkeeper. By night (and weekends!) I design and make knitted, crocheted and tatted items. I live this secret night life with two dogs, two cats, a grown kid (daughter) who's sadly not home much, and a great husband. My other kid's married to a lovely young woman. He comes home more to visit the dog he abandoned with us than to see me, I think, but I still feed him when he shows up. I love reading (fantasy and SF, mainly), watching documentaries, surfing the tube/net/web, gardening (fresh vegetables!), hanging out and a miscellany of other things - I'm curious about most everything! It's not near as boring as I just made it sound.View all patterns by designer (14) »
Jane set down her pen to blow into her aching hands. Despite the fire in the fireplace, the room would not release winter's chill. Jane resolutely picked up her pen again - she had left her characters in tangled heartache, and she could not bear to allow them to remain so for longer than necessary.
A soft warm scarf was lain across her shoulders. Jane turned to see her dear sister. She fingered the silky material, marveled at the lovely winter design.
"I made it for you," Emma said. "Happy Christmas."
"Thank you," Jane said, pulling the scarf closer around her neck. "It's perfect." And she resumed crafting her story of Lizzie.
This elegant design with evergreen trees, flowers and winter berries is based on a lady's embroidery pattern printed in 1825.
