i have been doing needlework since childhood. my grandmother and mother taught me embroidery, crochet, knitting, sewing, beadwork and flower making. i spent many years watching their hands create beautiful pieces. one of my favorite memories was going to the needlework shop with my grandma in search of a new project. handwork is my escape. i feel most centered and peaceful while working on a project. even when i have to scrap something or start over, it does not feel like work.
