When I'm not gardening or putting by food, I can almost always be found stitching something or browsing a thrift store. I have a wonderful husband (aka Pappy) and 2 delightful daughters (the gherkins).
I like to make stuff that is nice to look at and/or touch. I am inspired by the imaginations of my children, pop culture, sarcasm, and nature, but not necessarily in that order. My textile art is usually cross stitch or embroidery, but I've been known to work in wool, felt, and organza, too. I design patterns faster than I can stitch them up!
I sell a pattern to benefit the Pediatric Burn Unit at Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown PA. My daughter fell into a campfire on 9/4/10 and burned her hands and arms. I want to do something to give back to the wonderful folks there who continue to take such good care of us…
