    About

    I am an avid stitcher of many types: Cross stitch, embroidery, knitting, crocheting, and especially quilting. While the cross stitch and quilting I have been doing since I was a teenager (I won't tell you how many decades ago that was)  the others I mostly just dabble in.  Quilting and sewing are what stir my blood.  I grew up mostly sewing apparel, but grew into home dec when I went to work for a custom interiors store while in college.  While there, I learned window treatments, bedding and such including some of the tricks of the trade, which I will share with you.  

    Like many fabric-aholics, I'm constantly working to both expand and use my stash (kind of seems a little counterproductive- but fun ;).  I love fabrics, in all colors, shapes and weights, but use mostly cotton (as most quilters do).  

    I consult a lot with my mom, who is also an avid sewer and quilter, though we have various tastes.  Mom prefers more traditional and elaborate designs, while I tend to go for more transitional to contemporary designs and a simpler palette.

    I'm an interior designer by profession, but always find time to sew.  It's my creative outlet.  The thrill of a new project just sets my mind to racing and my creativity to soaring.  I especially like solving problems, so most of my projects have grown out of a need I have seen.  I'm always looking for something new to work on, just as most of my fans are.
