I grew up on a small dairy farm just outside a little town called Plummer, MN; that was in 1972. Growing up on that farm I learned how to do a lot of things with my hands, and to use my imagination. We didn't have all the high tech gadgets back then so our imagination was pretty much all we had; besides, having a good teacher, my Dad. Dad taught me mechanics and how to build things. I learned a lot from him and through his love, guidance and encouragement I found the creative side to my personality at a very young age. As I got older and started high school, home economics taught me how to sew; then at the age of 17, during a trip to visit an aunt in Maryland, she introduced me to the world of crochet, a simple single crochet stitch using the popular ripple afghan pattern. I was "HOOKED", literally. Being a stay-at-home for the first 10 yrs. after high school, I pursued learning several crafts to occupy my time...macrame', cake decorating, cross-stitch, embroidery, sewing, baking, canning, woodworking, etc., however, crocheting seems to be the one craft that I keep going back to, as it's a craft I can take anywhere I go. I have made several afghans, scarves, hats, mittens and an occasional sweater, resulting in a rather large stash of yarn over the years. In the early 80's I tried my hand at using thread, making a few doilies for my own personal use and immediately fell in love with the delicate lace and how lovely they looked on my tables. Then in the mid 80's, I ventured out into the world and started a career working outside the home. As a military wife, and having a husband who was deployed for most his 24 yr. career, there wasn't much time left for crafting. I still tinkered from time to time on some of my crafts; just not on a regular basis. Now that my children are on their own, and I no longer work outside the home, I decided it was time to get back to doing what I love to do the most, crocheting with thread. Oh yeah, on occasion my grandchildren will ask me to make them a hat and/or a scarf; which of course, I am more than happy to do. After all, they take priority over everything else I do.
