It hurts me when people tell me my patterns intimidate them. Ironically, I used to think that certain people intimidated me because I thought they were smarter than me and they had more than me. Now the tables turned on me. I want to make complex things simple to understand. I like to add a new dimension on things like hats. Sometimes I think I know about something more than some. As it turns out I intimidate them, but I don’t intend to. My patterns intimidate people but I don’t want that to happen. Accept a new challenge and think yourself smarter than you think you are. Grab a new lease on life and go places. Accept change. My videos will help you get a head start on my patterns especially the LAUREN and VIRGINIA hats. They among my others add a new twist on crochet. I offer ways to help make the pattern easy to understand. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. When I offer challenging patterns, I don’t mean to offend anyone. I just want to share my expertise with the world.

Winter is around the corner in Australia. Etsy is an American handmade selling venue, and has gone international. I love the international connection. I live in Corpus Christi, TX. My hats would not sell here in Corpus Christi, TX. The weather here is a subtropical climate. The coldest temperature was 40ºF in the winter. It does not snow here, except Dec 25, 2004. The snow melted the same day. Etsy provides the opportunity to market all over the world.
My crochet hats are seasonal. They sell well here in the winter time. However, in the summertime, sales drop drastically. That is where Australia comes in. I have had buyers from there purchase my hats and scarves. it’s nice to know someone on the other side of the world let alone hemisphere.
