Hi! I'm Mary and I love to make things. In the past I've dabbled in stained glass, developing and hand-tinting photos, ceramics, watercolor, calligraphy, beading, scrapbooking, knitting (which I still love, but takes so much time!), and various other crafty endeavors. My grandma taught me to sew when I was a little girl, and I did a little sewing on and off throughout the years. When I found out our fifth child was going to be a girl (after four boys) I just knew that I HAD to SEW for my little girl! After a milestone birthday present of a Bernina Activa 220, I felt like I had finally found my true crafty love. I sew whenever I can find a moment, which means I'm usually up far later than I should be.
