Ruth passed away last year at the age of 87 - I wish I could have met her! What an inspiring woman she was. I admit crocheting is probably the last thing I would think of when looking at wire. I hate working with rough yarn - maybe I need to rethink my own approach.
this site dedicated to her. I hope you are as inspired as I am.

We met through Ravelry - she had a gorgeous (of course!) jacket that I really wanted to make but needed help. I messaged her and our friendship really took off! That was many years ago and I still really value her friendship. She encouraged me as a designer and involved me in volunteering for the CGOA.
Tammy is the kind of designer we all aspire to become. She can pick up a hook and magic happens! She doesn't plot and plan - she just creates! What a amazing gift to be blessed with! "Crochet Wraps Every Which Way" is the result of that gift! It's a beautiful book you don't want to miss out on!
Her Chica Mala Shawl is my favorite design in her lovely book!

This past year has been a bit slow for me. Many of you know I really messed up my shoulder in June and it has been a very long road to recovery. It made it darn hard to design anything medicated. The math is hard enough without it! :-)
I am finally starting to see light at the end of the tunnel! I am making good progress on healing and if I continue to heal can avoid surgery. What a blessing, indeed! I will know in a few months for sure. Prayers appreciated!
On the flip side, although design opportunities have slowed (you don't work if you don't submit), I've been blessed with other opportunities that I can't wait to share with you! Just a few more weeks before I can tell!
In the mean time, I wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a very Blessed New Year!
