I love to make things! Rarely will you find me without a crochet hook or knitting needles in hand working on a project. And I love to sew and scrapbook, too! My husband and daughter tease me about my crafty obsession. But they are pretty happy, too, when they score something handmade. I learned my crafting skills at an early age. I come from a crafty family and learned a lot from my mother and grandmother who taught me to crochet and craft. My 4-H leaders filled in the gaps, teaching me how to knit and sew. Then I studied Fashion Design and Home Economics at Kansas State University. Now, I have the privilege of passing these skills down to my daughter. I have to admit, it wasn’t easy for me to learn. I struggled with reading patterns and following instructions, so I designed most of my own projects. But over time, I finally learned how to follow a pattern and began writing my own patterns. I always like to share this experience with others who are learning to show them that with practice and perseverance, they can learn, too. Happy Stitching!
