Hi! I'm Janet Casarez. I program Flight Support software for NASA--have been for 10 years now and enjoy the challenge,
but my first love is crocheting.
I started crocheting at age 14, right after I saw my Grandmother make an afghan. I thought it was so beautiful--I had
to learn and she loved to teach. My favorites were the Filet Crochet
doilies she made. They were so dainty and elegant. I loved them so much
that I started making my own from patterns I found in magazines and
books. The only problem I had was finding the perfect pattern for me. I
liked one motif in one pattern and wanted to combine it with some other
motif in another pattern.
After years of frustration and a degree in Software
Programming, I decided what I really needed was some Filet Crochet
software to do the editing for me. Before I knew it, I starting creating
my own patterns using my own designs. People starting asking me for the
designs and software and you know the rest
Crochet Designs by Sand Castle Designs, Inc.
I hope you enjoy the patterns and software as much as I do. Keep crocheting!
