Hi, I’m Sedie!
In 2001 I taught myself to crochet after meeting my boyfriend’s grandmother. He became my husband and now crochet is a HUGE part of my life, how’s that for serendipity?!
In 2006 we were expecting our first child and although I was excited I also felt sad that I didn’t have a way to stay home with my baby. At 23 weeks I began to have pre-term labor so my doctor promptly put me on bed-rest. Being put on bed-rest gave me the opportunity to look into how I could use my crochet skills to stay home with my son. During that time I found a small website called Etsy and opened a shop. That was going to be my way of staying home. Unfortunately, being pregnant affects everyone differently and for me it was a complete lack of focus. Try as I might, I completed only one project throughout my whole time on bed-rest. But discovering Etsy and the possibilities was a breakthrough.
In January of 2011 after a few years of working on and off and having another baby I decided to send a pattern for publication in a magazine. . .
