Manic Stitcher


I love ALL things fiber related. I quilt. I have crocheted since I was 5 years old. My parents bought me my first sewing machine when I was in the fourth grade. I made my first dress when I was 11. I taught myself to knit about 9 months ago and now I am sliding down the slippery slope of spinning. I have 5 children and 8 grands and 3 pits bulls. I live out in the country on 12 acres with 2 ponds.
