Well.......apparently, I just love creating patterns! I've been so busy sketching new designs as well as going back through best sellers and old favorites.  Then comes the hardest part......deciding which I should turn into a pattern.  Honestly, I haven't made a thing for my fall craft shows in months and at this rate, I'm going to be in a heap of trouble!!  But, truth be told, I do work best under pressure!  I have one more pattern in the works at the present's a make-do using dollar store candlesticks.  This pattern is quick, easy and inexpensive which leads to great profits at craft shows.  Be sure to make a bunch...they sell out every year!

available soon as a mailed pattern or e-pattern..........

My newest pattern, "Nicholas & Noelle" is now available for sale!  

Please click on the patterns page on my blog and leave a comment if you would like to make a purchase.

Just back from 9 days of vacation in sunny Florida!  It was so good to see green grass and palm trees after the long, cold and very snowy winter we had here in Connecticut.  The weather was pretty near perfect as well, temps in the high 80's and just one day with rain in the complaining here!  Now it's time to get back to work and finish the 2 patterns that I was working on..........
