I love to sew more than just about anything although I dabble in knitting, crocheting, quilting, papercrafts, embroidery and jewelry making as well. My proudest accomplishments include designing, draping and sewing a couture, bias, pleated, silk chiffon gown from scratch, having 10-20 ongoing knitting projects, creating a Hawaiian quilt and crocheting the longest and most colorful scarf on the planet.
