I learned to embroider when I was about 6 because I was fascinated watching my mother make cross stitch quilts and applique quilts. I loved embroidering. Later I made many of my own clothes using mostly Vogue Designer patterns because the pattern guide sheets were so good and the patterns were cut so well. I always loved textiles and color and details like pintucks. I majored in French but wish I could have done something with fashion. When my daughters were little I fell in love with smocking and French hand sewing. I did some of it but really did not have tons of time. I ended up getting divorced and returning to school to become an electrical engineer working for the Defense Dept in Huntsville, AL and did not sew for many years until about 5 years ago when my grand daughter Juniper was born. Then I searched all over for nice patterns and cotton fabric without poly. Lucky me. I discovered Oliver and S and gorgeous fabric. I have purchased so much with lots of dreams but have produced very little.

I love so many of them but my first love was the bubble dress.
