I began sewing at a very young age. Then, when my children came along, I made clothes for them. When my youngest sister got married, I made her wedding dress and all the dresses for her bridesmaids. I got lots of practice using my sewing machine.
When the grandchildren were born, I began beading stockings for them; these creations were quite elaborate. I also made Easter bunnies for my growing family and for friends too. I also created dolls, making their clothes, selecting hair, and making up their faces. I also delved into ceramics.
My Santa pins became a big hit with family and friends. I give each one his own personality.
It is my joy to give to others.
