While I tend to think of myself as a threadie, in reality I have probably had as many yarn projects published as I have thread. For several years, I designed an afghan or blanket almost every month. I did all the work myself (many designers used stitchers) so one a month was actually pretty good, considering I was also working full time, raising my family and turning out other designs as well. I liked to design afghans because they were easy; I could get the design established, then I didn't have to think too hard about them. Here are a few that I had published in the 90's:
|I gave this one to my step-mom, Sheila.
|I am not sure what happened to this one. I think I donated it to some organization to be raffled off, but I don't remember anything else about it!
|I made this one for my niece; it is still one of my favorite designs. So sweet and simple!
|I gave this one to my Uncle George and Aunt Sadie.
|I kept this one for myself!
|I gave this one and a matching pillow to my mama for Mother's Day one year.
|This one has been republished in a new DRG book called "The Joy of Thread."
|This one is so easy you can almost do it with your eyes closed!
|The same stitch pattern as the one above, but I added pineapples to the ends.
