A few words from Laurie!
I started out making up my own designs to sell as finished products. I noticed after a while, that people seamed to be more interested in making up the crochet items themselves. So I decided to try and learn how to write up directions for some of my favorite items.
Thoughts about her newest pattern, Secret Garden!
Born in the era of the first generation of Hippies, peace and love, and flower power are ingrained in my soul . I enjoy creating with texture first, then color.
In the second version I added bright colors that Hippies everywhere enjoy.
