About

At 10 my grandmother taught me to knit, crochet and sew. I still have the first projects I made. The crocheted item was a royal blue tam and the knitted item was a baby outfit consisting of a diaper cover and a little summer top - both white with a red devil worked in. No simple scarf for me, although I love to make scarves now.

By 16 I had customers and now I have been making items for others for over 30 years. The love has never lessened, nor the obsession!

My other loves are sewing (LeoLines.etsy.com), tap dancing, reading, solving puzzles (bigflygames.etsy.com) and spending time with my kids.

Occasionally I sleep.
