I've been knitting ever since 4th grade, taught by my dear aunt. Needless to say, everyone got a hand knit scarf that year for Christmas. Learned embroidery and crewel shortly after. Did not like sewing at all during home ec class, now I suffer withdrawal if I don't get to sew in a day. I've been quilting for over 14 years, lots of UFO's, but love to gift quilts for new members of the family.
