So excited to have found your awesome community! I’m Sheila, and my crochet patterns are published online under the name SheilaSchnauzies. I’m originally from Kansas City but transplanted to Omaha back in the 1990’s due to my husband’s job. I have two awesome grown kids and three rescue Miniature Schnauzers. My hobbies are writing, making semiprecious gemstone jewelry, gardening, and of course crocheting!
I’ve been an indie crochet designer for about 20 years now. I love working with both thread and yarn.Here’s a link to the index where you can get all of my free crochet patterns!
I’ve also had a Miniature Schnauzer rescue called Sheila’s Schnauzies since 1998, hence the pen name! All of my creations are done to help cover the vet bills for our rescue dogs.
I’ve survived a stroke that took half the sight in one eye, malignant Melanoma, multiple joint replacements, and too many other boring maladies to list; but I’m still kicking!
Here’s a pic of one of my designs, the “Backward Rose.”
Look forward to meeting everyone here – happy crocheting!
