It is always good to look back over the previous year and see your accomplishments, successes and even the misses. 2018 was the year I left my full-time job to pursue my crochet design life full time — such a big leap of faith for me!
Doing this full time has been such a blessing — being able to be home and spend more time with family is priceless and I know I will never regret it.
After looking back at my designs for 2018 — my first full year of blog and design life — I was surprised at how many patterns I had released — 29 patterns in all!
Each of these patterns are offered for free on my website — you can just click on the link provided below each photo to take you to the free written instructions. However, if you would like to support my work and get all of these patterns in an ebook read below —
