maRRose - CCC: Zoë dollOne of the many lovely and talented people I’ve gotten to know through the internet is Sarah, aka “Annaboo’s house“. To tell you the truth I could hardly believe reading in an interview she’s only been crocheting for a couple of years, because not only is her crochet work beautiful, but she also designs the most fantastic patterns.
A lot of these designs are available for free through her lovely website, others can be purchased in her Etsy shop.
Luckily for us, her talent has not gone unnoticed, because she’s been asked to write a crochet book that will be published shortly from now (you can read about it here) – how exciting is that!

Needing a present for a sweet little birthday girl this coming weekend, I decided “Astrid” would be the perfect gift.

Oh and what a joy to make was this darling doll! I had so much fun – and thanks to Sarah’s excellent pattern writing, I sailed through the instructions.

She’s all finished now and became good friends already with the other handmade pals living in my craft room.
