In the News & Giveaway Time

Oh my, it’s a Friday again?! ;o) I just realized that posted last Friday, a week ago. Not that I was waiting 11/11/11, I’ve just had another crazy busy, but absolutely enjoyable week and can’t wait to show you some new projects I’m working on! Also, this week I’ve got back edited Paint The Town Scarf and Elf Princess patterns and well as updated version for Fluffy Clouds Crochet Blanket is now available and updated Magnolia Crochet Lace Coat pattern is coming just in a few.

Fluffy Clouds Blanket

Fluffy Clouds Crochet Blanket Pattern
In updated version of Fluffy Clouds Crochet Blanket pattern, I’ve added a tutorial-tip “How to make easy and pretty picot”, one more diagram, which shows corner st in each rnd of Border. And by request of international customers, now all measurements and list of materials are provided in both USA and metric systems of measurement. I’ve send this morning an updated version in PDF format to everyone, who bought this pattern at my Shop, Ravelry, Etsy, DaWanda and Artfire. If for some reason you did not receive updated pattern or bought it at YCMT or via Annie’s Attic, please email me with your PayPal receipt copy or old version of this pattern in order to proof your purchase and I’ll gladly send your updated version.

    I’m a “Crochet-a-holic”, love to collect patterns and yarn,and work on my projects as much as I can! (I’m a substitute teacher, and take my projects to school to work on when the kids are good) Often they ask me to show them how to crochet and I do if there’s time. When there isn’t time, I tell them to look for the many tutorials on crochet that are online. Even some boys are interested in crochet! I’ve been crocheting since about 8yrs. old(I’ll be 65 this January)

    I absolutely love your patterns. I’m so thrilled that I came across them one day and have ordered several from you.
    I haven’t finished any of them yet, but I am working on Faerie Dreams zipper scarf, hat and pin. I am also working on the Magnolia Lace coat. I just love your fluffy clouds blanket and am going to order it to crochet for my new little grandson to be born Thanksgiving day. I’d better get to work!! I crochet mostly, but because of your beautiful patterns I took a class to learn how to knit also. I am currently trying to finish a scarf and as soon as I think I proficient enough, I plan on ordering a couple of your sweater patterns for my grandaughters. Please keep the beautiful patterns coming. I get so excited when I get an email from you. I love to see what you’ve been up to!
