All about me
Welcome to nannasworkroom, Thats me. Being a person who gets bored easily I spend my time creating. Fortunately I have been blessed with the ability to do this. Married young and with 5 children I quickly learnt that it was,back then, cheaper to make their clothes, so I did. My sister and I then learnt to crochet from a book, since then I have gone on to design, write and publish 6 books of crochet patterns specifically for the Porcelain doll market. Memorable achievements, apart from my children, include teaching a little girl with fingers only on one hand to crochet, aged 8, I'll never forget the excitment and joy on her face when she realised she could. My eldest daughters wedding dress was also a challenge, I had a severly broken elbow while doing this, right arm too. It has over 3000 pearls on the skirt, a train featuring their names, a church date etc, and the skirt was 6yards around. I amazed the doctors by crocheting with my right arm in plaster fingers to shoulder. Guess I could be called stubborn. Now I'm classed as mature age, or pension age, I still crochet, still design all my own patterns. I design and write patterns for magazines. I'm also in the process of setting up a website. I love to paint, do stitcheries, knit and patchwork. I sell my designs and will upload a freeby from time to time, as well as let you know what is happening. At this point in time I'm workng on a new crochet pattern for a magazine. Living in the most beautiful part of Queensland, its easy to be inspired to create beautiful things.
