About Me

My photo
I have been retired almost a year, and have enjoyed doing my favorite things, like needlework, rug making, quilting, watercolor painting and photography. I have been married for 47 years and am now the caregiver to my husband suffering from Alzhiemer Disease. He is losing is battle now, after 8 years. So sad to watch him drift away. I am also raising my grand daughter, now age 12. I have had her for the last 6 years, She keeps life interesting, and it is fun to share my hobbies with her. My grand mother and mother taught me, so now that I have a girl I get to help her. FUN.

Pin Cush

My own design, made on a computer program, 
stitched on 28 ct China Pearl Luguna 2x2

I really like using the computer instead of
graph paper, think I might have to invest in
the program.

Quilt Pattern Fob

My own design stitched on 18 ct Ivory Aida 
2x1 DMC Floss

I'm using one of my scissor fobs for a key fob.. The fob doesn't 
drop to the bottom of the purse, how great is that.  I will be making lots 
of these for presents. Also looks good hanging from your pocket 
when your keys are inside.
