I WON! I WON! Thank you!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!! I won the Flamie Award for Best Design for Children! My Tulip Baby Set won by only 10 votes! It was close, but I want to thank everyone who voted! You don't know how excited I was just to be nominated...and to win something! OH MY!! I was on cloud nine when I found out and it was soooooo hard for me not to tell anyone!!
I have a few THANK YOU's that need to be said:
*Thanks to Laurie and the Crochet Liberation Front for supporting the art of crochet in such a fun manner!
*Thanks to my wonderful, dear, sweet friend Annastasia Cruz of My Treasured Heirlooms who nominated me! It's been a pleasure to be your friend all these years and to go through our crochet designing journey together!
*Thanks to Dee Stanziano of Crochet With Dee! She was my mentor through the CGOA Associate Professional Program and she actually showed me the tulip stitch used in the pattern.
*Thanks to the amazing Michele Maks, who was the editor of Crochet World Magazine when this issue was published! I appreciate all the support and encouragement you showed me!
*And thanks to my friends and family! My beautiful little girl who inspired many of my designs, my wonderful hubby who has allowed me to become a stay-at-home mom and to follow my crochet obsession, and my mom and Aunt Cora who are always amazed by what I have accomplished. Also thanks to my Granny up in heaven who passed down her creative genes to me and taught me how to crochet!
*And finally, thanks to all of you....my crochet friends....for your support, encouragement, and votes!
