I have loved crochet, knitting, sewing, gardening, and crafts all my life. And, and as a teacher, I taught in these areas. I was a Family and Consumer Education teacher for 20 years and a Library Media Specialist/Technology Educator for 13 additional years. I've taught children from elementary school through high school and adults (and LOVED it!!) I am married and have one married daughter. And we have two wonderful grandsons, ages 7 and 4. We live on a beautiful lake and that is where I design crochet hat patterns and create hats for babies and children. I love designing and creating hats!! I am inspired by the colors in my gardens and the interests of my grandsons, their mom and their friends! I hope you love the things you find here and in my Etsy shop, too!! You will also find me talking about my gardens and other craft ideas. I will definitely be posting many photos and tutorials. Finally, I do love to play with technology and I will post lots of ideas about how to use it in fun, creative ways!!! So, welcome to my blog. I hope you will find all kinds of useful and fun information here!!!!
