While raising five children with barely time to think, counted cross-stitch was one of my hobbies that became a passion. I began drawing my own designs and my children said "Mom, that's as good as what's in the magazines. You should try it!"
In 2000, when the children were all officially "out of the nest", I launched my business. With the help of a patient and encouraging husband, Lyle, and Sean, a computer whiz of a son, managing my website, I am free to design. I never get tired of it, but I do wish there were more hours in the day for sewing!
My ideas come from cherished elements within my life—family, friends, my surroundings, my pets, my love of gardening and of life itself.
