Canadian Thanksgiving Scavenger Hunt Treasury Blitz Winning Shop Announced!

Last week, we ran our 3rd Scavenger Hunt Treasury Challenge in celebration of Canadian Thanksgiving. And the winner of our 48 hour Blitz is...... Amy of Amy D's Crochet !!! Now, let's meet our winner and find out the inspiration for her shop :-)

"Hi I'm Amy from Amy D's Crochet. I'm from a small rural town in South Dakota. "

"I've opened my shop on Etsy in 2009. I begin crocheting back in high school where I learned the basics in a home ec class. I've been crocheting and learning new techniques ever since. I stared out doing afghans but branched out doing other things like hats, scarves, doilies, amigurumi ( Japanese term for knitting or crocheting stuffed animals); and other items.

I enjoy finding new patterns and creating something I've never made before. I can spend hours looking at patterns & looking at crocheting magazines. I enjoy trying out different patterns and experimenting with different color combos. It's always fun to see how different something will turn out just by changing the colors.

Of course not everything turns out the way I want it to. There's been many times that I haven't been happy with something or I've made a mistake & I'll have to undo my work and start over.

My favorite item to crochet is afghans. My favorite item in my shop is my round ripple baby afghan. I love how soft the baby yarn is & love the color combos of the pink, white & purple.

I also enjoy working with vintage patterns. Sometimes I'll change the pattern a little to give the item an updated look; other times I'll keep the original design. I have several items in my shop that I've made with vintage crochet patterns."

Thank you so much, Amy, for participating in our Scavenger Team Treasury Blitz!!! 
Congratulations once again and Happy Sales :-)
