I learned to sew before I went to school. My mother, grandmother and aunt sewed everyday. I ran a needle through my right index finger early on, but have never done it again. I am self taught in many craft fields. My most recent is beadweaving. I think I have finally found my passion. I love the feel and look of tiny cylinder beads worked in peyote stitch into a wonderful mosaic of colorful design. Other beads and other stitches are interesting and lovely.,But beadwoven peyote is what I enjoy most.
