Have you seen the latest issue of Crochet World?
Check out my newest published design, Afternoon Tea, featured in the Lovely Lace section of the April 2015 issue. The five-piece set can double as a charming addition to a quiet afternoon tea or coffee get-together or used as individual doilies. It would also make a nice gift set.
Although I have always loved lace crochet, it wasn’t until 1997 that I took the plunge into designing with thread. By the time I had completed my first doily, I was well and truly in love with it. Since then, I’ve had many designs published, but working with thread is always a special delight.
Having a design published in Crochet World is always a little nostalgic for me. I had my very first design published in Crochet World way back in the late 1980s, and its current editor, Carol Alexander, was my design partner for many years until we both ventured into editing.
Do check out the April issue. It has great designs in it by some terrific designers, many of whom I had the distinct honor of working with while editing Hooked on Crochet!, Annie’s Favorite Crochet and Annie’s Hooked on Crochet!
Be sure to check back tomorrow for my stop on the 2015 NatCroMo blog tour presented by Crochetville!
