Creating beautiful things by hand has always been a part of my life that I am proud of. Crochet and sewing are my first love after my children and grandchildren. My husband comes in a close third. Yes, I create crochet items to sell but I will only create items that please me. I enjoy creating my own patterns, and dreaming up artistic ideas. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t. I have been crocheting for over 44 years now. I would love to teach the grandchildren the art, but we live in a hectic world now, but I am still trying. If I am not crocheting, I can still be quite creative in the kitchen. Always trying new recipes or creating my own. Again, some days are diamonds, some days are rust.
