I mostly enjoy making pieces that are small in nature: doll clothes and knits for children.

Knitting is one of my main passions. I knit with natural fibers, especially wool, but tend to work with easy care cotton and acrylic even more.

I've been sewing, knitting and crocheting for years. I'm self taught in all my acquired skills. I'm constantly enlightened with new design ideas for doll ensembles, costumes, and individual pieces, as well as small knit items for children.

Please check back often to see my new designs and creations.
