Living on the Rock

Nykki Makes
I was taught sewing, baking and general home lessons from a sweet teacher in Home Ec.
I made lots of my own clothes and later, my daughter's. My first machine was an old Singer belonging to my grandmother and now I use a Pfaff.
My mom taught me to knit and I have never been able to remember where I learned to crochet. I now own and use my mom's and grandmother's knitting supplies.
There was never a time that a blanket was not being crocheted and a dress being sewn.
After many years of putting all this on the back burner, I am back and can't get enough!
I love color, texture and nature, some how I almost always add a touch of each to my products.
Until recently many of my items could be found in a local store and our UPS.

For many years I worked for a company, Tempshield Cryogenic-Protection.
Tempshield's cryogenic gloves and aprons are essential accessories for those working in hazardous environments with ultra-low temperatures. The leading medical and scientific firms worldwide rely upon Tempshield products to keep them safe.
In those years I also made gloves for NASA, for use on space model displays, etc..

My shop --- > http://www.nykki.etsy.com is packed with a variety of items.
Feel free to stop by..

Thank you..

    I recently picked up where I left off years ago. I love to sew, crochet and do crafts. I now use brighter colors and textures. I work in a noisy environment and being creative helps to bring me back to a quiet, relaxing spot.
