About

I have always been a crafter at heart. I have hopped from one craft to another for as long as I can remember. I would see rag rugs and think one day I will try to make that. Then one day I was thinking about this rag rug that was in my great grandmother's cottage. I loved that rug! I began a journey of on line searches. The internet is a wonderful thing! You can learn to do just about anything if you have the patience. Anyway after I don't know how many You Tube videos and other tutorials I started digging around in my linen closet and ripped up some sheets. Bought a large crochet hook and jumped in with both feet. The first, I don't know how many, rugs I think I ripped apart more than I completed. Finally, FINALLY I figured it out. You see I had never crocheted anything before. Oh my grandmother tried to teach me, many years ago, the infamous granny square. It never stuck but it was enough to get me started. And I was off!…

Oh my grandmother tried to teach me, many years ago, the infamous granny square. It never stuck but it was enough to get me started. And I was off! Who would have thought bed sheets came in soooo many beautiful colors! I quickly became addicted. Oh how my hands ached, but I just couldn't seem to stop making them. I am now a sheet junkie! lol Then one day my daughter-in-law called me. She told me she had just signed me up for a craft show in one month. I can only imagine the panic that everyone could see in my eyes. It was the best thing anyone could have ever done for me. You see I lacked a little self confidence. She made me do something that I was all too uncomfortable to do myself. I never would have taken that first step. I am eternally grateful. My family and friends have given me so much help and support I am humbled and I thank them all profusely.
