About me

Unmarried homebody just turned 60. OMG, I just realized I’m a spinster! Gasp! I’ve always liked being home, and I’ve always liked to fashion things. My grandmother taught me to knit and crochet, and I learned to sew from my mother and a Home Ec. class. I still sew (long distance) with my best friend from high school. I live in Florida, which would be dull if I did not love kayaking, which I do. I grew up in Vermont, the most beautiful place on earth. I’d be there now except it’s about 50 degrees colder than here.


Crystal River, Florida. Isn't that a pretty name?

Favorite Oliver + S pattern

OMG again. How to pick? Each one I've tried — 12 so far — has both wowed me and taught me something new. My favorite? At the moment it is probably the Seashore Sundress. But there are 11 close seconds!
