In a nutshell... I'm a mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend, and major fiber addict. Yes, I do confess. I have more fabric, yarn, embroidery thread, trims, patterns, and spinning fibers than any one women should. But, I can't help it. I love it all. Sometimes I want to sit and spin. And, others I want to cut out quilt squares or sew a new outfit for one of the kids or dolls. Feeling those yarns pull through my fingers as I knit, crochet, or spin just gives me such a sense of peace. It's such a tangible thing that I'm doing. Whatever I'm doing. Even if it's just the simple pleasure of cuddling with one of the kids under a blanket that I've made.
And my blog? Well, here is my place to document some of it. The good, the bad, and sometimes the ugly. Yep, I said ugly. Hopefully you'll find something here that will make you laugh, oooohhh and awwww, or maybe just be inspired to try something new. I share tutorials, recipes, reviews, and give the occasional advise. So, grab a cup of something yummy and browse around.
That's me. Sitting and working. This is an older photo...maybe from 2009. I really need to find a new one of me at working.
My end table on any given day. Right now it's got a toy car, a water bottle, an empty Annie's crackers packet and my knitting bag.
