New Year 2013

It's New Years Eve and as I write this and think back over the past year it's been beyond anything I would have thought.. We have been living in Florida for 18 months and have started to feel like we live here and are not visitors.

My crochet life has taken off in unexpected ways.  My first pattern accepted by a magazine will be in Crochet Spring 2013, another 3 pc toddler set was accepted with Crochet World for April 2013.  A shrug and a Father's Day set are coming out in the June Crochet World 2013.

I also experience  my first Stitches Show at Stitches East in Hartford CT this past October, I happen to spend my 50th Birthday there and it was totally unplanned but the best birthday weekend I ever had. 

I have been accepted as an Associate Professional Crochet of America Guild member with Margaret Hubert as my mentor. Although many people I have met and continue to meet teach me everyday.

I hope to keep this blog going with my crochet happenings.  It's a pleasure to enjoy a craft I learned at age 9 from grandma and have it be so rewarding.
