About

"My Grandma's Garden" is in dedication to my Norwegian Grandma, my Irish Grandma, my Mom - all the Grandmas everywhere. A garden doesn't necessarily have to be full of flowers - or veggies - or plants of any kind. In this case, it's simply a garden of handmade goodness - by THIS Grandma.

When I was little, I remember my little Irish Grandma sewing her quilts and clothes on the treadle sewing machine that fascinated me so much - to the point that my Mom started me sewing when I was 6 years old. There was always some sort of fiber work in evidence - at home, at Grandma's - no matter where I was. Sewing, quilting, crochet, embroidery - we saw it all. Odd, though, out of all of us, I'm the only one who knits - or, spins!

My favorite garden? Well, that's my daughter and her husband with a couple noisy, little sprouts of their own!…

I hope that after you've visited my handmade garden here, you take the time to enjoy a little bit of your own garden (whatever it consists of and wherever it may be) each day!

This shop is new, but I've been around for a while with my other shops -

www.Claydancer.etsy.com - with handmade pottery, handspun yarns, tools/accessories for spinners and knitters and whatever else catches my fancy!

www.TheOddSpot.etsy.com - where I have my vintage and destash yarns with a few other vintage items thrown in for good measure.

I'm off to a bit of a slow start with this one, but give me a bit and I'll get caught up!

All my items come from a non-smoking, kitty friendly home.

I'm also on Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/ClaydancerStudio - stop by and say 'Hi!'

Thank you for stopping by! Now, go grab a coffee or tea, pull up a chair and sit a while - coffee's always on and you're always welcome!
