About

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 two) just as wonderful grandchildren. My home is smoke free, but animals abound. I live on a farm with a tiny teacup toy poodle 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. I originally mailed them but an slowly converting to digital .pdf files (which will save both of us some money - I'm lovin' that!).

I've been sewing for 50+ years, doing counted cross stitch and making jewelry for 20+ and thoroughly enjoy it all. I've gone back to some crocheting and who knows - I might even find another craft to add. My grandmother taught me to make my own doll clothes 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.

Most of my vintage items came from my mother & grandmother. One can only keep so much 'stuff'.

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