A look back at 2007, and my latest Crochet Top

These are what I have accomplished in 2007, as far as crocheting goes. I'm squeezing it all in one post (please bear with me) :p

I was featured on t.v., Jan.14 - in a small segment on the program "Convergence" on Net25. Though it didn't make me popular or anything, I considered it a lucky break and a great way to start the year.

I made it on t.v.!

I put up my website on Googlepages and announced my first published patterns with Coats Manila Bay.

And, finally, this is my last FO for 2007:

I submitted this design to Coats Manila Bay a few months ago. I made this short top for myself, but the one I'm modeling below in mustard color is the one I submitted to Coats. I really like the mustard yellow more than the other color I made...but I used the gold color thread, since I had it in my stock :p


  1. A very productive year for you Mimi. I hope I can as productive as you in this 2008 year. By the way, I like your yellow new design.
