Most of my fabrics and notions used come from either the thrift store or my large stash. I have even raided my mothers stash.

My grandmother, Lena, made quilts that have traveled the world. My mother, Sarah, made my clothes and instilled the love for sewing in me at an early age. I've been sewing since I was a kid, starting with doll clothes, then moving on to my own clothes. For my 8th grade graduation I gave my mother very specific instructions of what I wanted in my graduation dress, she then turned to me and said, "well then, do it yourself" and I did.

I got more into home decor and crafts after I got married and set up my own home because it was more fulfilling, and less expensive, to create my own things. While my children were young I stayed at home and started a sewing business where I sewed custom items for several interior designers and a couple of local shops. Now that my children are grown and out of the house I have a sewing room(s) again, YEAH!!! You know the saying "Whoever dies with the most fabric wins", well I don't want to win. So I have been creating my favorite items to share with others on Etsy..........Enjoy!!
