I have been knitting and sewing since I was in the sixth grade. Mrs. Bileau taught me how to knit and I learned to sew from my Mother and my Home Economics teacher Mrs. Johnston. I am a self-taught quilter, which means I am not perfect nor do I want to be. I prefer the fun of designing and the satisfaction of completing projects. I am a yarn and fabric addict. My dream is to someday own a mortar and brick yarn shop but until then — I have a point and click shop on Etsy!
I have made hundreds of hand knit Christmas stockings. Every family member and all my friends have one, so now I post on Etsy so others can purchase.
My other favorite thing to make is the small quilted USA flag wall hangings. It’s fun to select the red, white and blue calico fabrics. No two flags are alike.
The most exquisite thing I’ve made are these knitted and felted wool bowls for holding anything — apples, keys, cell phone, pipes, nuts, twigs — you name it! I use Lamb’s Pride 85% wool and 15% mohair double strand yarn to knit these beauties and then felt by using the hot to cold water bath process three times to shrink to a good tight bowl.
Here are some samples of what my customers say about the
treasures they found and purchased at my
“Our Lodge In The Woods” online shop on Etsy!
