HI! I am a knitter, quilter, and elementary school teacher in the Cleveland, OH area. I love knitting and have been doing that for about 4 years. I have been quilting for about 12! I’m in my mid 30s, married with 2 dogs, and 2 cats, but no kids as of yet.
I started sewing when I was still in college and my grandma gave me one of her old sewing machines. My attempt at sewing clothing were not so terrific! A friend gave me a pattern for a log cabin quilt that came with her mom’s sewing machine. The rest they say is history! I was hooked. Off hand I couldn’t tell you how many quilts I’ve made, probably 50 or sew ranging in size from a doll quilt for my friends little girl to about 5 king sized ones! I have lots of projects started that I just need to finish up!
I’ve been knitting only for a couple of years. When I started I swore I was only going to use fun yarn and make scarves, but the knitting bug got me too…I have acquired quite a stash of yarn and projects that I want to make! There just ins’t enough time in the day! I’ve made many purses felted and otherwise, a ton of scarves, and a couple of sweaters. Each sweater seems to get just a little better. Soon I will be able to wear my knitted sweaters out in public! (OK they are really not that bad, but often end up being to big on me)
I enjoy lots of other crafts too. I haven’t’ found too many crafty things that I won’t/haven’t tried! Being crafty and creative tends to run in my family!
