Rose Colored Glasses


"Methinks it is a token of healthy and gentle characteristics, when women of high thoughts and accomplishments love to sew,
especially as they are never more at home with their own hearts than while so occupied."  - Hawthorne's "Marble Faun"




Welcome to my new home on the web.  I've had my site over at Michigan State University for years (since I was an undergrad there many moons ago), but had a little shock when they took it down for a while.  So this is my new place - a repository for my family history, stitching, and things to share with family & friends.

Two things that come together on this site are my love for stitching and genealogy.  My family has some great adventurers, including families that came from England on the Mayflower, went west on the Oregon trail, and came here from Sweden and Finland.
