The time has finally come! I'm ready to post my first ever blog post.
I planned on publishing my first post January 1st of this year. New Year, New Blog! Sounds perfect! However, that never became a reality. On Christmas Day 2013, I received an email from the incredibly lovely Salena of Design Wars inviting me to become a Challenger. Everything else was pushed aside as I dove right in!! I couldn't belive it!! I felt like it was a mistake and they would say "Hey! How did she slip through the cracks?" ! I was a newbie among some of the most incredible Crochet talent I have ever met!!! You can see how starting a Blog may have been the furthest thing from my mind at this point ;)
Once I got my bearings, I was able to design the Butterfly Breeze Poncho. My first attempt at something that wasn't a hat or scarf. I was so happy with the design.
From there life snowballed. Designing new patterns, 2 more Design Wars competitions and a basement renovation took up most of my Spring and Summer.
Phew!!! Now I'm ready for a break. Except, I have already agreed to the newest DW Challenge (see a pattern here?) and I can't go another year without hitting my resolution of starting my Blog! So!!! Here I am and here it is!
I hope you have fun with me here and enjoy seeing a more behind-the-scenes approach to my designing as well as learning more about my life away from the hook.
And like the title of this post says, Here We Go!!!
