I am a stay-at-home mom from Gauteng, South Africa. Some would comment that I live in my own little world of imaginary creatures and all things fey. To them I ask, does the wind not exist simply because we do not see it? Whether it be an old bottle cap, a skein of yarn, scraps of material, a piece of wire or a block of wood, I love to spend time creating things of whimsy that I trust will be found to be fun, refreshing and enjoyable to others. I am also a published cross stitch designer having done work for and with Quick & Easy Cross Stitch magazine (UK), Cross Stitcher magazine (UK), Jeanette Crews Design (USA) as well as DMC Paris. I love the versatility of crochet and am always delighted by the journey that begins with an idea rambling about in my head and concludes with the finished product. I hope you enjoy my patterns and please be sure to check back as I'll steadily be adding more as I finish writing them up.
