Being a designer and blogger has been a huge blessing for me and I am so happy that I get to have this job! However, meeting design deadlines, working on the tech side, and constant social media posting leaves me little time for “personal happy time crochet”! I am sure many of you know what I mean — whether you are a contract crocheter, craft show maker, tech editor, designer and/or blogger!

And since I spend a prodigious amount of time seeing a lot of other designers’ work of course there are designs I see that absolutely “speak” to me and beg to get on my hook! So here’s hoping I get some personal crochet happy time this year!

I think you will agree these designs deserve to be on anyone’s list! Have you made some of these already? Do you have any favorites? Let me know!
