As one of 8 children, although my Mother was a beautiful knitter, she did not have time to teach us and could not sew. My Father had learned many crafts when he assisted his handicapped brother and passed these on to me. He taught me to sew, Knit, Macramé, Tatting and at 14 I mastered all these.
I have 2 Daughters and a Son (all in their 40's) and 3 Grandies. They all look forward to their presents as I usually make them something personal. Sometimes a quilt, maybe a Table Runner or Placemats etc. They love looking forward to what is next.
I am married for the second time and have a Husband who understands and supports my passion. I have recently been diagnosed with Lung Cancer and it is going to be a long painful road ahead. My Quilting is going to hold be together as my passion is still there.
