I have a crafter/girl crush on Grace Fearon. She is a crochet lace designer and her patterns are awesomely beautiful. I mean, seriously awesomely fantastically beautiful. I feel like I am technically talented; I can knit or crochet almost anything. But I am not design talented at all, and people who come up with such gorgeous patterns out of their own talent and imagination blow my mind. I literally cannot conceive of how it happens, but I am so glad it does.
You can find her at www.gracefearon.com. She is branding herself with her own name now, but previously was Emilyandthe Handmade; there are books published, available on Amazon, under that name. She can also be found on Facebook and Ravelry; both sites have groups with help, faqs, errata, videos, and pictures of her designs. You can buy her patterns individually on Ravelry; there at least 60 of them right now. Some are free, some can be bought in bundles, some are in books, and she has quantity discounts! Love her! The great thing about Ravelry is you can go to each pattern, and then go to the projects people have shared for that pattern. You can see so many different versions of the pattern, different colors, different sizes from different threads/yarns/hooks, different ways of display or use. It is so inspirational. I recommend going, right now, and getting your own crush on Grace Fearon started.
