A girl with an interest in most things crafty, just looking for the time to do it all!
Interests: Sewing, Knitting, Crochet, Embroidery, Needlepoint, Reading, Collecting all sorts of vintage things (clothes, accessories, fabric, sewing machines, craft books, pyrex, etc). My newest interest has been renovating our 1922 house, doing most of the work myself, with some help from Dad and my husband.
