About Me

My photo

I am a knitter and crocheter and love to design when I get a chance. I am known as the crazy cat lady with 3 dogs. I am a mother to 3 of my own and step-mother to several. I am also a grandmother.

Anything Knitted and Crocheted

Welcome to my blog. I hope to blog about my knitting and crocheting as well as everyday life. The patterns that I post are original and as such there is copyright on them. When they are based on another pattern there is a link to the pattern.

My husband and I adopted a beautiful dog named Leo. He is a dachshund and absolutely adorable! we adopted him on June 23, 2010 and he has become the love of our lives.

I love to share patterns that I find along the way or to talk about some of the neatest designers that are out there today, so I love to post links to the designs or the designers.

So grab a cup a and sit and enjoy the blog.

From the Website:
History:
Suncatcher Eyes were born in 2006. After making a bunch of Ogilvy dolls, I was tired of the same old black craft eyes, and the store-bought brown ones did nothing for me. I found the colored eyes online, but they seemed so dull and lifeless. I wanted more of a color selection and a better quality. So I went online and found some clear craft eyes and decided to paint my own.
