Handmade Goodness!

I've enjoyed a life long love affair with fabric, quilts, vintage linens and yarn. The crazier our world becomes, the more I feel the need to dig deeper into our collective roots, creating the things our foremothers did but adding a modern twist.

I am a big believer in making a quilt feel as nice as it looks. Does it feel homey, evoke warm memories, enhance a décor, and suit a purpose? Does it feel nice to the touch? That is my goal ~ to make a variety of styles and variations available so that others can experience the wonder of a lovely handmade-from-the-heart quilt!

Color and functionality, are important to me. Having lived in an area of the country where I was cocooned in my home for much of the year, color brought more life to the world of those who loved the items I made…

Color and functionality, are important to me. Having lived in an area of the country where I was cocooned in my home for much of the year, color brought more life to the world of those who loved the items I made available.

With creations made from yarn, my personal criteria starts with "is it warm enough to wear in 50 or 60 below frigid temperatures such as I experience living in the interior of Alaska? If the creation is not intended for frigid weather will it serve in "normal" cold weather? I want crocheted items that drape nicely, feel good to the touch and to the skin. That's what you will find in my shop.

With over 50 years of making wonderful creations for my family, for Farmer's Markets and for online venues, every item I offer on Etsy is brought to life through the same loving devotion given to a family heirloom or a gift for a dearest friend.

Thanks for stopping by ~
