About

I am a stay at home army wife rearing 3 children. I am thankful for the life God has blessed me with. I enjoy using my talent to make gifts for my family and friends.

I am a product of more than 4 generations of knitters and crocheters. From a very young age, I would sit and watch my mom and grandmothers making a variety of projects from hooks and needles.

My great-grandmother was an avid yarnster who made countless afghans every year to give to her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren at family reunions.

Her daughter, my dad's mom, passed away before I was born, but my girls still have some of the Barbie clothes she knitted for my sister's dolls. She taught my mother how to knit slippers when mom and dad were married…

I am a product of more than 4 generations of knitters and crocheters. From a very young age, I would sit and watch my mom and grandmothers making a variety of projects from hooks and needles.

My great-grandmother was an avid yarnster who made countless afghans every year to give to her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren at family reunions.

Her daughter, my dad's mom, passed away before I was born, but my girls still have some of the Barbie clothes she knitted for my sister's dolls. She taught my mother how to knit slippers when mom and dad were married.

My step grandmother knitted and crocheted, among other needle crafts, and always had a project going.

My mom's mom made a lot of thread crochet doilies and table cloths. She also created some of her own patterns that were published in various magazines. The crosses that I make today and list under "bookmarks" are from one of those original patterns.

My mom makes slippers. She can make other things too, but the slippers are so popular, she usually doesn't get a pair finished before there is a request from someone else for another pair. She, very patiently, taught me how to make them also when I was 11.

That is where the fascination, or obsession, with yarn and color combinations began. Allowance money would go to yarn. Friends would get my first attempts at lose, unevenly stitched slippers as birthday or Christmas gifts. I am much better at my craft now, I promise!

I have a library full of patterns that I have inherited over the years when my grandmothers have passed away. The inventory on my page will change as I dabble with different projects and tools. Some of the easiest designs to remember without a pattern will be frequently stocked, but others may be "one of a kind" finds. I hope that what ever the case may be, you find something to your liking in my varied listings.

Have a blessed day!
