Nice surprise for my birthday - to be selected as First-Place winner in the Crochet 2016 Calendar Pattern Contest.

and receive $500 prize from Kniting & Crochet Pattern-A-Day Calendars
The winning design is a Swing Top pattern:

The top is embellished with a lace at the neck line.

This wouldn't happen without a help from my friend and crochet mentor - Mary Jane Hall, who gave me an idea to participate.
Please, check out her crochet pattern books at Amazon store.
Her latest book

Colorful Crochet Lace: 22 Chic Garments & Accessories

was published this year.
