I’ve been crocheting for well over 10 years.
I first learned to crochet when I was 8 years old and didn’t pick the hooks back up until I was in my late 20’s.
I make all kinds of crochet items made out of acrylic or cotton yarn.
I have always admired seeing all these beautiful crocheted items but could never wear them because they were normally made out of wool.
I decided that I would just learn how to make all the great things I saw and make them out of something I can wear.
Between that desire to fill a personal need and a gift of an antique painted fox paperweight, which is my logo, handed down from my husband’s family, Painted Fox Gifts was born.
I love bringing new life to vintage or forgotten about patterns.
I enjoy making the 'old' crochet patterns and I am always thinking of new ways to adapt and use them.
Take a look around, I post projects that I am working on and projects I have finished.
