I learned to crochet around the age of 14 from my grandmother and aunt. I started out making afghans but developed a love for working with threads and crocheting doilies. My husband, Rick, and I have a grain farm and small trucking company in Maryland, and I began to design patterns in filet crochet depicting day-to-day life on the farm. My first design, Let It Snow Table Runner, was published in the February 2006 issue of Crochet World. I have had many more designs published since then in several crochet magazines. I was fortunate enough to have a crochet pattern book, Filet Table Runners, published a few years ago by Leisure Arts. For a glimpse of my crocheting life and also patterns that I have self-published, visit my Ravelry page and Etsy shop. I recently started a crochet Facebook page as well called The Farmer's Wife Crochet & Crafts. Check them out and give them a "like"!
