Started making crafty items at the age of 6. Then progressed to teaching art & ceramics& porcelain. Making dolls in porcelain, then to sewing. My first quilts, were for my boys at the time they liked the mickey mouse & all the Disney characters . So I painted the blocks with the characters & then quilted it together for them. Now, years later, making quilts for them again. this time ----it is a grown up quilt. LOL
