Hi! I've been sewing fun stuff for a couple of decades, and making up stories about imaginary people even longer! My love of both came together this year with my debut novel, "Trinka and the Thousand Talismans," a fantasy stuffed with colorful creatures. My two sweet kids keep me busy these days, but I do like to put up more patterns for sewing when I get a chance. May they get your creative juices flowing! :) christy
