I began my online selling career in 1998. I took a sabbatical while I battled breast cancer, but now I'm back in the harness and enjoying my various craft pursuits.

I'm a grandmother with four wonderful children and eight (plue three) just as wonderful grandchildren. My home is smoke free, but animals abound. I live on a farm with a Pomapoo puppy and two cats - and goats in the field.

I've been doing cross stitch for 35+ years and designing my own charts. At the urging of friends I decided to offer a few online. All charts are available as an instant pdf download.

I've been sewing for 70 years (yes, I'm OLD), and doing a variety of crafts. I've gone back to some crocheting and who knows - I might even find another craft to add. My grandmother taught me to sew and to make…

My grandmother taught me to sew and to make my own doll clothes when I was a little girl and long before Barbie was ever thought about - but she's the one I enjoy dressing. I love making all the fancy, elegant gowns, boas and sometimes even Barbie sized jewelry.

Please stop by my Etsy shop anytime - I plan on having new listings regularly - and the coffee pot is always on!
