About Me

My photo
I've been crocheting for over 30 years, and come from a family of yarn and fabric artisans. I learned to sew from my Grandmother who made several quilts a year entirely by hand...one for each child, grandchild, and great-grandchild. Life situations and changes caused me to take a chance and open my first Etsy shop in Feb. 2011. A few successful months later, I opened my second Etsy shop as BeccaTheBaker...and later in 2011 opened my third Etsy shop as BeyondCrochetToo. I'm a single mother of 2 teenagers (a girl and a boy), plus 2 cats. I'm a 5th generation Native Californian (Northern California. And am happy to be back on the West Coast in the Pacific Northwest where I belong.

Isn't It Funny?

Isn't it funny how excited we get about patterns, supplies (in my case - yarn!), etc?

I've been searching everywhere to find a cute monkey pattern to crochet that I would be able to list in my shop. But not only have they all been copyrighted, but I just didn't like them. lol

Then yesterday my mom brings me a bunch of old (read: "vintage" lol) pattern books that she thought I might be able to use....and there it was!...my perfect monkey!! :D

So.....needless to say: Monkeys will soon be coming to BeyondCrochet - complete with banana! LOL

Now, I just need to find the time to make monkeys, new Christmas/Holiday items for both shops, and pack for the upcoming move across the country! LOL

**Side note: We sold the Florida house and will be heading to Oregon the second week of December!! YAY!! :D
