Writing is a new thing for me. All my life I have been interested in projects I can do with my hands. I learned to sew and embroider when I was a child; in school I studied painting and the arts; as an adult I have added quilting, mosaics, beading and photography to my interests. My mind whirls with ideas and it's sometimes hard to stay focused. I hope that by writing down some of these ideas I can collect my thoughts and create a better understanding of what I do and why.
