Things I love…
I love all things artistic, but especially the fiber arts, knitting, crocheting, pattern design, and most recently handspinning my own yarn out of various materials.
I love DIY-ing – well, pretty much everything… besides my yarny pursuits, I utilize my collection of antique cookbooks to work some old-fashioned cooking and canning magic – often with a modern twist.
I love finding inspiration in the everyday here; when the “doing” of the DIY is finished, most of my projects end up inspiring a fiber creation.
I love my life here in the Big Red Brick House, a kit – style foursquare which occupies much of my time with various repairs and restorations.
I love our garden, where we grow vegetables, fruits, flowers and herbs, organically and right here in the city!
I love my husband, Sweet Petunia, and our 6 ( yep, count ’em – 6! ) kids, our huge extended family on both sides, our friends that have become like family over the years, our 2 rescue cats, and our 1970 Oldsmobile.
