About Me

My photo
Illinois, United States
I am a band director at five private schools in Kankakee. Music is a big part of my life, but knitting and crafting are right up there too. I own a ridiculous stash of yarn, which I am slowly using... and replacing with better yarn... I tend to knit and crochet a lot, in class, out of class, while watching tv, while driving, pretty much constantly. I have been involved with crochet romantically for 15 years, and involved with knitting for 11 years. They sometimes get jealous of each other. I think its funny. Along with knitting and crocheting, I quilt, spin (drop spindle) and design patterns!!

sale 20 the story of this purse... i made it without a pattern and it turned out great. then i lost it, and didnt think aobut it for about a year. when it turned up again i realized i never put lining in it. so i trudged over to hancock fabris and looked. didnt find anything, i was going for the hawaiin theme, but nothing worked. sooo after giving up liz drags me to hancock again. and lo and behold she finds a fabric, one that is not hawaiin, but kinda funky. and it worked out great!
