I just received the blanket I ordered and it is beautiful! I love that my daughter will have this custom blanket to snuggle with 😊. Will definitely be ordering from her again! Super fast shipping and a cute card included 😍😍😍

I love to create, it is what makes my heart smile!

For my 60th Birthday my 5 children bought me a new sewing machine and information about selling on Etsy. They knew that sewing and crocheting was something I have always loved and I needed just a little motivation to get started with my own shop. Being retired this has been so much fun for me and a way to satisfy my need to create.

In my shop I wear all the hats. It has been a full time job that keeps my mind busy and satisfied.
When I first started on Etsy I was able to work out of my sewing/hobby room. As my shop has grown the amount of rooms I was occupying also grew. I think my husband was hoping I would finally get tired of Etsy but my passion has only grown stronger. This year my husband agreed I needed one big room to make my job a little easier. We knocked out a wall and had a 430 sq. foot sewing room added on. I love this new shop. It is everything I hoped for.

It is very important to me as a wife, mother and grandmother to have balance between my family, my friends, my church and my shop. In order to do this I only except a specific amount of 'made to order' blankets at a time. Once my quota for the week is filled I will close for a few days to catch up. This way I am able to keep my lead time to a minimum and still have time for other things that I love to do.

The reason I keep doing this is because of the joy I receive from my wonderful customers. I love visiting with all of you and hearing your stories. Knowing babies and children all over the world are enjoying something I made gives me so much happiness.

~Welcome to my shop! I make sure everything I sell is of the highest quality in workmanship and materials. I use only the best in everything I do and try to keep up with all the latest designers and trends.

~My specilaity is my hand crochet trim that I sew around my blankets and burp cloths. I am one of the only shops anywhere that crochets on minky. I crochet my items internally instead of with a blanket stitch. I love the vintage touch the crocheting adds to modern designer fabrics.

~This last year I added crocheted nursing/teething necklaces and teething toys. I love working with these items. Because of the extensive amount to time these items take to make I sell them as a 'ready to ship item" only.

~ My inspiration comes from sewing for my 5 children, 18 grandchildren and 50 nieces and nephews who I have enjoyed sewing for over the last 40 years.

Shop hours~

~The crocheted trim I add to my blankets and the crocheted necklaces I make take from 5-7 hours a-piece to complete. Because of this I am only able to accept 8-10 custom orders a week. This helps me to have balance between my shop and my family. It also helps keep my lead time to a minimum of 3-5 days.

~I strive to make sure your shopping experience is enjoyable and positive in every way.
