When I was around 10 years old, my mother was diagnosed with cancer. I spent alot of time with a neighbor while Mama
was undergoing radiation therapy. This neighbor changed my life by introducing me to crochet. My first pieces
were awkward and ugly, to say the least, and I crocheted every one for Mama. Of course, she still has them
and is still proud of them!
When I was 16 or 17, I made my first quilt for Home Economics class. After that I kept right on going. Quilting
and crocheting became my everyday activity. First it was just quilts, then crocheted baby christening gowns, doilies,
shawls, etc. After my children came along, my hobby was scaled down to just doing it while watching television.
