Texada Island BC

I wanted to make things from an early age. I would make necklaces by stringing flowers, cut out scraps of fabric for barbie clothes etc. I was taught to knit and crochet at age 9 by neighbors and made a knitted scarf that looked like a lasagne noodle for my grandfather, then progressed to my first 2 crocheted afghans (granny squares, also with tension issues)
