Hi! and thank you for coming by for a visit.

baed7-nov2b20162b2Just a little about me…I live in Weston, a beautiful small town in south Florida. It’s just north of Miami and west of Fort Lauderdale – and on the edge of the Everglades! The critters around here can be pretty interesting.

I’m a sewist, quilter, and knitter, and I love making things! And seeing what others have made. I’m joyfully retired after a 30-year career as an international technologies project manager. Much of what I enjoy most – artwork, sewing, garden, home – reflects the beautiful tropical location where I live now, my years of working and living in Latin America, and my love of Latin American cultures.

I often wish sewing bloggers would give their measurements – it would be so helpful. So, from me to you, I’m 5’7″, bust 36″, waist 32″, hips 42″ – and my dressform body double is named Emile!

A view of my sewing room at it’s very cleanest (absolutely not normal)…
