DH and I moved to the burbs after decades of living in the hustle and bustle of the big city, it’s the only place we could hope to finally afford a home. We have 1 Devon Rex cat and 2 Pug dogs
and a plethora of marine fish in a saltwater coral reef tank. I love our little Chalet and the little town we’ve adopted, you don’t have drive far to see cows and sheep, a simpler, calmer life.
I can knit and crochet as well as sew, have been since my early teens, I come from very crafty parents. My mother painted china, cross stitched, knitted, crocheted and now paints in watercolour. My father is a carpenter, has worked in stained glass and leather. I’m the only one of three children who really had an interest in arts and crafts.
I attended Champlain College in Lennoxville, Quebec in Fine Arts and the Ottawa School of Art.
My paternal grandmother was what I consider a master quilter who quilted beautifully by hand and made each and every grandchild (over 30!) a quilt or two! My mother’s family were farmers, there was no time for quilting with 10 children and a farm to run, darning (by hand, of course) was the order of the day. I don’t expect to reach the level of my Grandmother’s skill and talents but I’m going to enjoy trying!
