When I was about 8 years old, my grandmother Ida taught me how to crochet. We sat side by side on her 'davenport' while she helped me figure out how to navigate the balance of yarn and hook. A few years later, she taught me to sew on the sewing machine in her dining room. Visits to her Iowa home were often spent thumbing through the collection of Workbook magazines from boxes on her enclosed front porch and deciding on our next project together.
Now, nearly 30 years later, I still love the feel of yarn between my fingers. My little ones learned to sleep alongside the even hum of my sewing machine. I'm the happiest statistician you've ever met by day, and a hobby artist by night. For this reason, you won't find a vast number of items in my little Etsy shop. In fact, most of my work is creating custom items for a small handful of terrific clients. I love that each piece…
