About

My favorite hobby has always been creative sewing . . . . .

One of my favorite things to do is sew and create. My mother let me use her World War II era Singer sewing machine when I was only 5 years old. As I think back to that, I am very surprised, as Mom was somewhat overly protective of me any other time! However, I'm glad she did, as I was never injured and it was love-at-first-use.

After a 40-year career in various business positions, I am now deliciously retired and able to spend time indulging in my favorite hobby -- sewing and creating. But -- how much of one's work can be used at home or given as gifts? So, here I am on Etsy to see if others will enjoy having -- and giving -- my creations as much as I enjoy making them.

You will find in my shop an array of various items. I like to make the pretty pillows the best, as they offer such a workable “canvas” to create on. There are several purses as well, and a wall hanging or two. Please check back from time to time as I like to experiment, making other things. Your requests and suggestions are always welcome.

A few years ago, I invested in a beautiful Bernina top-of-the-line model 830 sewing and embroidery machine/computer. As you will see, many of my items feature designs embroidered on this modern wonder. I also like to use lovely images transferred to specially treated cotton fabric using an ink-jet photocopier.

My favorite styles are shabby chic, cottage chic, Victorian, and art deco. I love to work with laces, trims, and beautiful, quality fabrics. I do occasionally, however, branch out into modern, traditional, and mid-century modern. All my items are completely sewn on the machine and/or by hand. Occasionally, a jewel or flat back pearl will be glued, but only items that can only be attached that way.

I'm a perfectionist by nature. Although very little handmade is truly perfect, I do expend the time and effort to make each item carefully and as well as possible. Years ago there was a gentleman sewing teacher on television who used to say "Leave perfection to God." Many times I have to remember that in order to keep from making myself crazy :-).
