I have been sewing on a machine since age twelve when I made my first skirt and blouse. I learned embroidery work at an even earlier age. But it seems that no matter what different crafting ideas I try, I always go back to fabric and sewing in some fashion or other whether it is a quilted wall hanging, an embroidered pillowtop, a doll, or household item, etc.
I love the challenge of finding just the right fabric in texture and color for whatever the project is.  At the present time I am making children’s dresses with matching purses and many other items including small novelty bags that I call “Gad About Bags” just big enough for the bare essentials. I have been fortunate to win some ribbons at the guild art show mainly for my wall hangings.  I am very proud of that!  My grandmother who taught me to sew was also a quilter.
