About me

Introduction Just a Note about Me... At six, I sewed my first dress. It was a sadly pathetic, lavender, double-knit simple little thing which lies folded in a cedar chest at my grandma Charlotte's house. She taught me to sew at her sewing machine which had a knee peddle (which at six years old, was a foot peddle for me.) And from that time forward I sewed my clothes. At seventeen, I was so excited to go to my Junior prom. Wow! I actually had a real date and everything! And for whatever reason, once again, the color of the dress was lavender! This time, embellished with hand-sewn lavender flowers across the bodice. That first date on April 4, 1981 was true love & almost 30 years later we are still married. And I am still wearing lavender... Whenever.
