I started embroidering and sewing when I was about six or seven yrs. old. In the late 70's I took a quilting class with Nancy Halpern and was hooked. I learned to knit when I was a jr. in high school and knit from time to time. When I retired 2 yrs. ago I have been doing more knitting than quilting and loving it. I need to be creating something, in some medium. one way or another each day or else I get cranky!
