I’ve been embroidering since I was 5, led down this wonderful path by a dear family friend who shared stitches and ideas with me well into her 100’s. After dipping into knitting, rug hooking, weaving, bobbin lace, bead crochet and spinning the wool from our rescue farm full of llamas, alpacas and sheep. I came back to embroidery, creating one-of-a-kind pins and pin/pendants with silk ribbons, threads, beads and charms. Each begins as a background of a favorite fabric, offering a design journey from flower-filled gardens to miniature landscapes and so much more. Wherever my world takes me.
