It seems like the job was meant for me, but it was pure coincidence!
I am a southerner, born and bred. Then I moved to and lived in New England for most of my adult life, but now have returned to the land of sweet tea and hush puppies. I am the mother of one daughter and grandmother of one grandson and we all (along with my son-in-law) live together in North Carolina with my 2 sweet dogs and my daughter’s 2 sort-of sweet cats.
By trade, I am a techie, by spirit I am a DIYer. Thanks to channels like HGTV, I cannot look at a scrap of anything without seeing it transition into something new and wonderful. I have built things as mundane as bookcases and as serious as a handicap ramp. I have installed flooring, and tiles and even built walls. I will paint anything. While I am willing to admit that some wallpaper is attractive, I cannot look at it without assessing how much work it is to remove!
I sew – still waiting for a granddaughter so I can make some of those cute little pillowcase dresses! I’ve crocheted my whole life, from shawls to Christmas ornaments. And I knit, but I’m a beginner…for about 10 years now. In all this time I’ve never made anything that isn’t flat. Well, there is this one hat:
Which looks round but is really flat, just a rectangle that is crocheted together at the ends and gathered together at the top. But it’s a step in the right direction.
So those are the basics about me. You will continue to see posts by me on a regular basis. I hope you enjoy the new direction the site is going and I hope you will give us feedback on our posts and what you like or would like to see on the site.
