I live on a farm with a beautiful park-like yard in the front and back.I learned to crochet at an early age and things just took off from there.I enjoy creating my own craft projects, changing some a bit to make them my own and doing just about anything that captures my imagination.

Peace comes to me fully when I'm immersed in one craft or another and the joy is tremendous when when it's a gift for someone else.What a wonder to sit outside crafting and yes... sewing on my machine.

My hubby,my Cockapoo,Leo and myself enjoy life together here on our farm.Natures music is a symphony of sounds like no other.

craft interests: crochet, embroidery, fashion, gifts, holidays, home decorating, jewelry making, knitting, memory making, paper crafts, quilting, restyle, sewing, needlepoint,painting&willow furniture.

Re: Zipper Tape Necklace

I too agree-It looks like a snake around her neck.It is very big and clunky looking.Jewelry is an accessory and an enhancement to what a person wears.This is NOT eye-catching in a nice way but rather an eye sore.I don't think anyone is being disrespectful or rude but rather voicing their opinion That is why there is a comment box!!

Re: Project Runway - The Big, Top Designers

I also agree-I ENJOY Project Runway.Emilio's gown is very "circus inspired."I did like Anthony William's gown except for the deep frontal neckline.I liked the color and style-I'd say it is,"circus chic."

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: The Felted Bag Book

I'm new to felting and would appreciate winning this book.What a neat way to craft and purses are like my shoes-WONDERFUL!!

Re: Project Runway - Red Heart Challenge

The only one I like is the Jesus Estrada dress.The other ones are terribly lacking in design and fabric.Appropriate undergarments should be worn to give body smoothness considering they are wearing a material that literally shows "it all." Very disappointing reproductions of less than tactful fashion of each other.

Re: Project Runway - Run for Cover

Anthony's design was very nice and the color was appealing.He did a very nice job with the ribbon,layering effect.I also
really liked Jay Sario's gown-elegant and so free flowing.
Jonathan Peters & Maya Luz designs were to busy and the style lacking I think.

Re: Make Your Own Buttons from Polymer Clay

Fantastic Idea!! I've never thought of this and what an innovative way of the tools you used to make the buttons.A person could also use them to scrapbook and for home made cards.Your instructions are also great to follow which makes them easy to make.
Thank You!!

Re: Project Runway - The Highs and Lows of Fashion

Yes,the judges got it right.I liked Anna Marie Lynett and Emillio Sosa's dresses.they had a bit of a different concept in the cut of the dress.Ping Wu & Jesse Le Noir-the little blk dress is so versatile from work to evening.Top it with a blazer by day and a beaded shawl by night.Also Jesus Estrada & Amy Sarabi baggy pants and top look very comfortable to wear.They look like youth with style.I wonder if I had to do this would it be so easy? I see talent guys-kudos to you all.

Re: Heartfelt Valentines: Fortune Cookies and Rings!

These are not only easy to make but really cute to give to someone.It would be nice to tuck a fortune inside stating a gift you are giving someone,like a coffee date or supper date that you'll pay for.Thanx for sharing!!

Re: How to Make Your Own Valentine

This Valentine doll is just too cute.My hubby wears glasses and I'm going to make this for him.I'm going to make a netted sack attached to a piece of twig that he carries with some chocolate goodies in it.Thank You for sharing!!

Re: How to Restore a Lamp Shade

Very easy steps to understand.I have several shades at home I want o cover-customize to my decor.Good layed out directions.Thanx.

Re: Project Runway Season 7 Premiere
