Crochet World Magazine – Lace Cuffs

Crochet World Cover Cuffs

Crochet World Cuffs

My first published pattern in Crochet World Magazine back in 2010……and just as popular today!

These Lace Linen and Silk Cuffs are easy to crochet……beautiful in this variegated yarn, but also wonderful in a solid silky shiny yarn or striped!

Fiber and Clay, Together We Play – Shepherd Choir

3 Boy Shepards

Scot and I love working together with our mediums. He first creates the shepherd in clay and then masterly glazes them……I get to be surprised and see what I can come up with to complement them with my yarn……color combinations, and different textures and techniques. We did a series of Shepherds for the Holiday Season……
