About Me

Hi, I am married with 7 children and 22 grandchildren. I live in a rural area and have joined online groups of like minded needleworkers, at my DDs urging. I have enjoyed learning goldwork, stumpwork, silk ribbon embellishments and various other crafts.   I do not claim to be an expert in any of these, I just like to try them out.  I guess you could call me a born fiddler.

I am always eager to see how other women create. I know there is a wealth of inspiration out there and hope to find more.
