I started crocheting while my husband and I spent almost 8 years traveling around the country in our RV. Yarn is light and when stuffed in the cabinets, it kept things from shifting while we drove down the road. (At least that is the excuse I gave my husband..hehe). I got into a tester group with the Crochet Garden, which expanded my skills and interests. I work part-time for a crochet magazine as a techical editor, which means that I check the patterns for errors and get them into the proper format. These experiences have encouraged me to attempt a few of my own designs.
I have been married to the love of my life for the past 18 years. Together we have 5 children and 11 grand children. Originally from Michigan, we now reside in mid Florida, in a park where my parents also reside and my husbands parents come down for 6 months during the winter. I am very blessed. :)
