About

My shop is very small, but I try to keep a variety of handmade items. I love to crochet and sew, but I am willing to give just about any craft a try. If I am sitting down, I have to keep busy, there is almost always a crochet hook, needle or paintbrush in my hand.

I grew up on a farm in California but now we live on the beautiful Oregon coast where the summers are short and the winters are very wet! I spend the few sunny months we have in my yard. Sunflowers are my favorite, but I like all flowers and veggies too. Once the rains begin in the fall I am happy to come inside and work on my many projects...but I am constantly looking out the window to see how the yard is doing, imagining the flowerbeds filled with summer time flowers and wishing the sun would come out so I could get back out there again.

I was raised with very talented family. My dad built his own farm equipment and loved to work with wood, just like his dad. My mom also has a some wood carving talent and encouraged me to learn to sew. My brother is equally talented, besides farming and building houses he enjoys working in wood and iron, including the iron cutouts listed in my shop. You will also find crocheted afghans created by my sister Patricia, she has a great talent for mixing colors and her afghans are beautiful, unique and of the highest quality. Then there is my brother's daughter Katy who created some of the adorable hand stitched stuffed animals in my shop. She is a college student working toward her art degree and hopes to teach. She has a great talent for sewing and no doubt will be a great quilter someday when she has the time.

Thank you for visiting my shop. Hope you find something that makes you smile.
