About

Hi Everyone a lot has changed since I first joined Etsy.

I have always loved to crochet and enjoy making just about everything. Taught when I was young by Grandmothers who were intent on passing on their craft, I was quick to learn and appreciate the art. My Mom taught me to sew, and the love of all crafts, but I enjoyed crocheting and seeing what I made with my hands.

I started out making gifts for family in friends and that grew to getting requests from friends to make gifts. While I loved making all the baby items, layettes, dresses, hats and booties I would get specific reqeusts for the flowers and appliques I would put on them. So much that it took off on its own and now I make them exclusively.

When I am not crocheting I am a big sports fan cheering on my beloved Philadelphia Eagles, Flyers, Phillies as well…

The biggest change since I started Etsy is the loss of my husband of 31 years. I was very proud to be his wife and miss him dearly. I hope that everyone has that chance to find their best friend and be with them like I had the privilege to do. We made two terrific kids that have now grown to adults. When I look at them I see their Dad's face smiling back at me. For that I am eternally grateful.

Thanks so much for visiting my shop and finding out a little about me. I love to convo to all my customers and have some terrific friends I have met over the years.

Happy Crafting, Lily
