It's not a secret that I love to crochet. I love to hold that ball of yarn in my hand and get excited about what I can create with it. I love knowing who I cam creating projects for so that I can pray for them with each stitch that I make.
I have a section of my website dedicated to Healing Blankets. I have made many through the years; it becomes a need so desperate in me that I have to make one for someone that I know that is going through a difficult time or illness. I shared about it here.
In my previous post I shared about resigning from my job and working from home - which adds challenges on all levels, especially finances. There is always someone on my heart that I need to make a blanket for and currently there are two people.
Last week was very exciting for me, I wrote, published and starting selling my first pattern! It is something that I have wanted to do for a very long time. It was so fulfilling to see my listing on Etsy and then I posted it on Pinterest and people are still pinning it, it has been pinned over 200 times. What an encouragement and blessing that is.
Both designing patterns and making Healing Blankets are very important to me, this morning I realized that the two are really one. The proceeds that come from my pattern sales can be what I use to purchase yarn for Healing Blankets! Why didn't I see the fit before? You know how it is, it is obvious for people who are on the outside looking in, but while you are in it you can't see two steps in front of you.
So, I have made a few changes on my website and now all items and patterns can be sold through my website which saves me on Etsy fees.
To purchase the Gwendolyn Cowl crochet pattern and support the Healing Blankets funds please visit my store for the instant load by clicking here.
How exciting is this! More patterns to come soon, I am just testing one now and hopefully will be available by the end of the week.
Thank you for all of your support!
I love to create with yarn and I love living in Saskatchewan. This is where the two merge to become one.
