1 How did you first get introduced to your craft?

My mother taught me to make granny squares when I was expecting my first child, Robyn, over thirty years ago. I made a baby blanket from scraps in her yarn stash, and I have never looked back!

2 What type of patterns do you enjoy designing the most?

I love to make vintage-look thread designs. I am a potholder and doily girl!

3 What are you most known for?

You mean besides having 6 children? As far as crochet goes, I have created hundreds of designs over the years, but the one that people seem to love the most is a “Love Knot Layette” that I did about 10 years ago.

4 How do you jump-start your creativity?

I have a huge collection of old pattern books which I love to browse through. The designs from the 40's and 50's are my favorites!

5 What season inspires you the most?

I love fall most of all, but in the past year I have been working with predominately springtime-inspired colors and designs-lots of flowers and butterflies.

6 On average, how many new patterns do you design each year?

I try to complete at least one new design every week; I have a note book full of ideas I can't wait to get to!

7 Is there another craft you'd like to try your hand at?

I have tried quilting, knitting, cross stitch and needletatting, but I always come back to crochet. Nothing else gives me the satisfaction it does.

8 What is your favorite way to spend a Sunday afternoon?

If the weather is nice, I like to go for a long ride through the country. If it is rainy or cold, I like to cuddle up with an easy crochet project and watch an old movie.

9 What three items do you always have in your craft bag?

My size 7 Boye steel hook, a notebook full of design ideas, and a copy of “The Prospering Power of Love” by Catherine Ponder.
