about me

crochet the day away…

I come from a long line of crafty people. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of watching my grandmother knit. She patiently taught me many crafty skills from embroidery to sewing.

In 2001, I found myself with a lot of free time on my hands. My husband was suddenly traveling more for work and I was home searching for a full-time teaching job. To help occupy my time in between substitute teaching, laundry and resumes I decided to take up crochet again. After five years as a reading teacher, I am currently a stay at home mom to three terrific daughters. They inspire me and my creations.

After years of sharing my creations with friends and family I have been encouraged to share my creations with the rest of the world which are now featured here and on Ravelry.

Thank you to all who have supported me along the way!
