About Bob

So, you’ve probably guessed that my name isn’t actually Bob. It’s a nickname that was given to me back in 2010 and has sort of stuck to me like glue ever since. My actual name is Tyler. I’m a twenty-two year old administrative assistant and professional dog sitter from San Diego, California . Currently, I'm attending San Diego State University outside of work and crafting. My partner of five years, SO, is a professor to non-native English speakers.

I have been a crafter for nearly fifteen years. I taught myself to crochet when I was eight years old and have been (no pun intended) hooked to crafting ever since. I have latch hooked, scrapbooked, and crocheted over the years (I don't knit, sorry!), but I didn’t find my true love until September 2013 when I picked up counted cross stitch. Once I started cross stitching, Bob Crochet’s Craft Down really became an integrated part of my life. I try to update her every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, but sometimes school and over life events trip me up. I apologize now if that ever happens.

Over the next few months, BCCD is going to experiencing some changes. Portions of this blog that are under construction are scheduled to be complete by the end of 2014 with the edition of some free to use patterns and tutorials. Please stay tuned and feel free to give feedback on these projects as they come to fruition.

  1. Hello! just came across your blog, looks like you have a lot of fun projects! I'm currently about 130 pokemon into a large xstitch of original 151 pokemon.

    I was curious if you could point me to where i can get my hangs on that yoshi home pattern? I link on deviate art sent me to your blog. admittedly i didn't scroll through your whole blog, so sorry if i missed where you may have posted the pattern.

  2. No problem! Thanks for stopping by and congratulations on the Pokemon piece! I plan on starting the Epic Pokemon Gen I pattern once I finish Yoshi (hopefully sometime during December of this year.)

    The pattern for Yoshi came from a wonderful blogger/crafter by the name of Rosaka. She posted the pattern to her blog a few years ago. If you do end up stitching this piece, I recommend scrolling down into the comments of the blog post and finding the additional image/color legend that she posted for stitchers not too long after the initial post.
