Phoenix Crochet-Along

Phoenix began as a notion for something fun and easy, but I never know where a design will take me. With each formation of stitches that make little hearts, leave kisses, bring butterflies or sprinkle flowers is a reminder that even when the sky is grey and life is full of yucky stuff, sometimes you have to kick off your shoes and dance in the rain.

About

Hooked on sunshine is my crochet patterns and cals site, the name comes from my little boys nickname – cook-a-lulu sunshine. So, wherever you see sunshine in my work – that’s for him. I have always considered myself a creative soul, delving into many crafts – mosaic, painting, jewellery designs, embroidery and bead-work. Crochet, however, is what I am most passionate about and having started it through charity work, I am now in love with its versatility, from the cutest toy, an item of clothing through to something beautiful for your home.
