I am a homeschooling mom of 3 young girls. I have many interests and hobbies that include designing crochet patterns and combining Celtic Knots with crochet.
I am blessed with a very helpful husband who does a lot of the cooking and cleaning around the house and often stays with our children so that I can teach crochet and design.
I learned to crochet when I was about 8. One of my elderly neighbors taught a friend and me on her front steps one summer afternoon when we were "bored". I instantly loved it and created all kinds of clothes and accessories for my dolls and puppets.
Inspired by all of the beautiful doilies in our home made by my grandmother, I then taught myself how to make various thread crochet pieces. (I bought all kinds of pattern booklets with my babysitting earnings.) I realize now that it was a great way to learn crochet stitches and how to read patterns.
Now I love the challenge of designing for publications and incorporating Celtic Knots into crocheted garments, accessories and yarn graffiti.
More about me (If you would like to read on :) ):
I speak and teach the Russian language. (I have a degree in it.)
Our family loves dachshunds. Right now we have a mini-dachshund puppy named Sadie. She is super cute!
I love to photograph flowers, butterflies, birds and other animals. I never tire of observing God's amazing creation.
I love to dance. I studied ballet all growing up, minored in dance in college and now use dance in worship.
I also love to sing.
