About


My husband and I have been married 55 years. We were blessed with a son and 2 daughters, who have given us 7 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. After my husband's retirement , we moved from the big city to my dream home on 5 1/2 acres in Bellville, Texas. Our "little" farm consists of 25 chickens and several barn cats. Our small garden produces enough vegetables for us and some to give to family , friends and neighbors.
I have loved all types of needlework since I was 12 years old. My grandmother was a huge influence on me and taught me how to crochet and sew. I am continuing that influence by teaching my granddaughter to sew and make some needlework items to enter in the county fair. In addition to crochet, I like to quilt, embroider, cross stitch and make aprons.

I couldn't begin to count the number of doilies I have made in the last 30 plus years, even sending name doilies to our last 3 presidents, Bush, Clinton, and Bush. I would be happy to create an heirloom for you which you can pass down through your family

Since writing "about me", my husband passed on to be with our God in heaven after suffering several years from parkinsons. Now my love of needlework helps to pass my time and keeps me busy.

Thanks for looking at my profile.
