I love thread!

I am first and foremost a wife, mom, new nana, and former home educator. My artistic side has always been a deep part of who I am and now it is finding its full voice. My Etsy shop has been such a wonderful adventure -- meeting people from all over the world and working with them to bring my art into their lives and homes.

I have been working and creating with my hands for as long as I can remember -- crocheting, knitting, cross stitching, embroidering, writing, and sewing. I love learning new skills and delight to experiment with color combinations and palettes. I love thread and needles - embroidery thread, silk thread, cottons, wools, knitting needles and crochet hooks, tapestry needles ....oh! So enticing!

I started making gadget sleeves for myself several years ago, in order to protect my new little iPod. I experimented with several styles and folds, zippers, elastics, and velcro, and finally created a pattern and style that worked. I decided the fabric I used needed a little pop and so stitched some embellishments on and it began. My daughter soon needed a sleeve, too, then others said they'd like some, and I decided to dive in to selling them here. I made sleeves for all gadgets and laptops for 5 years.

My big boost (my "Oprah Moment") came when the Pioneer Woman featured my shop on her blog. That day, I nearly sold out my shop and received over 50 custom orders. Things haven't slowed down since! I can't wait to see what comes next!

I am now transitioning my shop and projects to embroidered knitting project zippered pouches!! I love knitting and found these little project bags are fabulous for toting around my many WIPs (works in progress!). Can't wait to make one for you!

    I'm a wife, a mama of four lovely girls, and a new nana. I am also an artist. My art flows from the joy I find in my life and the roles I delight in. I am obsessed with thread, fiber, fabric, colors and beauty.
