For as long as I can remember, I have been creating. My Mother taught me to embroider and crochet at four years old , and sew at seven. She was always doing something – she never sat still! She made most of my clothes when I was young – sitting at her sewing machine until all hours of the night after working all day. My Great Aunt Mattie Lee taught me to knit, all about flowers and the importance of passing things on. My Pop Pop taught me about history, gardening, farming, hard work and the importance of not being wasteful. They all ignited a spark that eventually led me to be who I am today!
I do all sorts of crafty goodness, but my work focus is all about embroidery, sewing, needlework, painting and thinking outside the box!
When I’m not in my studio at one of my machines, I am always consumed with another project. A new DIY project, renovations, gardening, tending to our animals, cooking, canning or baking. There is always something to do in my little niche!
