Losing Track of Time


I was looking at my blogger profile this morning and realized that I had done macrame in the mid-seventies, so could actually, honestly claim I've been doing fiber work for over 30 years. But, I was looking through some old family photos and found one of me when I was 4 years old, sewing doll clothes, with my older cousin Gene, who became a newspaper editor, trying to teach me the intricacies of the hemming stitch, no doubt...soooooooo, I've actually been "doing" fiber for 53 years! Wow, that's before polyester, right?

What a cutie pie you were ;9 I can claim much the same as you, my dear grandmother taught me to do embroidery, using yarn..

When I was a kid my mom got me an embroidery kit. I liked it, but that was the last of my work with fabric. Ha!

hi, ellen and rhea...well, I didn't actually work with fiber all the time! I took a lot of years off to try the traditional arts....drawing, painting, etc....just kept coming back to fiber and that's where I'm staying for now!
