Therapy and my Life after Retirement.

My daughter-in-law introduced me to a wonderful fabric called Minky. I loved the look, and especially the feel of the fabric I started making blankets for my grandkids. Other people saw them, touched them and wanted one so I made them some. In 2010-2011 I was out of work for 11 months with Ovarian cancer I went through surgery twice and Chemo. It was scary and physically draining, but making these blankets made me feel beter, it was my," healing therapy". Well more and more people were asking me to make them a blanket. So I started my own business making baby blankets, then people asked me if I did adult size so I started making adult blankets also. At this time I am a full time Registered Nurse, but as I approach retirement I thought I will go crazy just sitting around. I am not the type to sit around doing nothing this was another reason I created this business so I would have something to keep me busy when I retire.
Every time I make a blanket I think, this one is my favorite but then I, or someone will come up with another design combo and it becomes my favorite. Actually I love all the blankets I make. They are my babies. I have been sewing for 48 years. Each blanket is" hand made by me, especially for you".
