A traditional herbalist and craftsperson, I have been crocheting and making herbal medicines and beauty products since I was a small child, many years ago. I knew how to knit as well; however, I'd forgotten this skill until only recently. In addition, I cross-stitch, paint, and make nature crafts, and am always looking for new skills to learn.
I thoroughly enjoy growing and harvesting my herbs. The wondrous fragrances that fill my gardens remind me to live and be happy; and the sensuous combinations of herbs and oils during processing reminds me that beauty belongs in every day.
To knit or crochet an item is only one step in my creative process when working with fibers. The variety of fabrics that can be created with just a few stitches, so different in each method, is awe inspiring. Choosing the fiber for each piece is such a fun part of the project…
