About Me

MeI am almost 71 years old and have been interested in all forms of needlework almost all my life. 

When a very small child Mother gave me her “feed” sacks and I cut them up and stitched by hand clothes for my dolls.  When I was maybe 9 or 10 she bought me a dresser scarf set with nothing but cross stitches.  I was thrilled but soon got bored with the drum drum of just one stitch – no variety.  My first UFO (unfinished project-object).  And have no idea what ever happened to it.

I’ve made a number of wedding dresses, from simple to very elaborate, dresses for complete bridesmaid party for several weddings, sewed 90% of the clothes my family wore, crocheted, knitted, did crewel embroidery and so on.   The list is long.  I dabble in oil and acrylic painting, love to cook for anyone that will eat with me, and especially for my family. I also enjoy photography, computers – took classes in both.  I have not undertaken the project of making a quilt for each of my family.    At present that totals 21 quilts but I’m sure as I move along that number will change withthe addition of more great grandchildren.  I love to cook, fish and most of all enjoy family.

With 4 children, 11 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren my life is full and blessed.
