dutchkeeper's Profile

The need to create is trumped only by the need to travel! And why not do both! I hope to do more traveling after I retire but for now its work, work, work. But while I'm working I daydream about what I can make next. My sewing room is full to overflowing as I'm sure yours are, too.
I remember my Mom knitting, working with leather, and then after she retired she found out she could paint china. So you can see where the crafting thing came from. I am a lousy knitter and I don't work with leather but I would like to. I used to embroider by hand, sew clothes, and cook from scratch with one child on my hip and the other playing with trucks. Ha
Machine embroidery has taken ahold of me. Over 10 yrs. now. My children and grandchildren all expect home made embroidered cards on every holiday and birthdays. Keeps me busy! Fabric bowls, embroidered tee shirts, embroidered chokers, mask, cuff, feathers, berets, embroidered bookmarks, etc. Some designs are mine and all have my stamp on them. But I love to make it your way!
