Hot Lava Crochet with Tammy Hildebrand - Next Stop on the Colorful Crochet Lace Blog Tour

Tammy Hildebrand
of Hot Lava Crochet
Next stop on my book blog tour is at the Hot Lava Crochet blog owned by my designer friend, Tammy Hildebrand. Tammy has been designing crochet for many years and authored several books. She is always bubbly with a smile on her face and encourages everyone she comes in contact with. I'll never forget the pep talk she gave me when I first started designing. I was really upset when a person in the field made some comments that were negative. Tammy came to the rescue saying not to let that person get to me because she was that way with everyone. Tammy made a big difference at that time and she will never know how much that meant to me. I was so new and didn't know anyone yet. 

You may or may not agree, but through my experiences in life, I have learned that people who are always negative, constantly critize and put others down, are miserable themselves and they don't want anyone else to be happy. For some strange reason, they think it makes them feel better, but how could it? No one likes to be around a person who is always focused on themselves. Anyway, Tammy is the opposite if this and is a delight to know!
I've seen Tammy's designs evolve over the years and I have especially
admired her "lace" garments and shawls. She doesn't even know this, but I have told a few people Tammy is one of my favorite designers. Not only is she a super talented designer but she is so sweet and I love her to pieces! Click HERE to see her Ravelry designer page.

We'd both love for you to go to her blog and read the interview she did with me plus her review of Colorful Crochet Lace! You will have a chance to win one of the books in her giveaway! Thank you Tammy for taking time out of your busy schedule to support me in this and in promoting my new book! Next stop on the tour (Friday, Aug 21) is at The Crochet Architect with Susan Lowman!
