Poster Calendar 2007

Woohoo! My halter design is shown on Coats Manila Bay's poster calendar!
I feel silly getting excited about it, but then a year ago I didnt even know that I'd be designing for them. Yay! And my printed patterns will be coming out soon!

I think their model and photographer did a good job ;)


  1. Congratulations! How exciting for you!

  2. FINALLY! Yay! I'm so happy for you Mimi. And the model does look good, too. Congratulations!! :)

  3. Yay for Mimi!!!!!!!!!
    Congratulations! *hugs* Your halter looks great!

  4. congrats on the calender poster :D
    I am a beginner crochet-er and stumbled on your site a few days ago. i was reading your pattern for the crochet helmet and started the first few rows when i left for a minute. my 3 year old STOLE my hook and lost it!!! it took me 2 days to get another one and now i cant get to the pattern :.....(
    is it being carried over as a pattern to sell?????? or is it MAYBE (hopefully) my computer not bringing it up????
    its THE best hat pattern of its type ON THE WEB that ive found so FAR!!! and im DESPERATE to finish it to see how it looks!!!
    if its a pattern thats going to be sold WHERE CAN I FIND IT!!! lol. as a beginner, how well it was turning out already is a HUGE confidence builder!
    (LOVING your patterns!)

  5. Hi Lisa!
    Thank you for your comments and for trying out my pattern!
    I'll be happy to help you out. My free patterns are linked on the sidebar of my blog. Just scroll down to see. I hope you get to finish the hat soon :)

  6. Thank you Deneen, it wouldnt mean a lot if I didnt have all you my online friends, to share it with :)
    Thank you Tina! You've been with me from the start and know how I've worked for this. I also appreciate greatly that you tested a lot of my patterns :)
    Thank you Chie! You've seen me develop my patterns and also my communication skills, and you've constantly cheered me on :)

  7. MIMI, This is great news!!! I´m so happy and proud for you!!! Excellent!

  8. Thanks Vik, for everything! It is really exciting to share this with you all ;)

  9. Congrats Mimi! The halter top looks great! I'm curious as to why Red Heart yarns are featured on the calendar... is Coats Manila Bay finally going to start manufacturing it locally here in the Phils.?

  10. Congrats Mimi! The halter is lovely!

  11. another accomplishment you made there! i will probably see you around the end of january Mi, that's when i'll be stationed in Subic.

  12. Thanks Aby, I was also surprised to see the Red Heart yarns. They are going to change Carmencita into Red Heart by next year, but they said its the same kind of yarn.

    Thanks Sue, I hoped to sell the halter pattern when it was
    still summer in the States. But its only now in December that Coats is going to release it :p

    Thanks Fe, I'm looking forward to see you :) Hopefully by then I'll be able to give you some of my patterns (with autograph...hehe...)
