    I love to sew. It is so calming after a busy day at work. I try to make something to wear to match my theme at Story Hour each week. Also I enjoy making a bead bracelet that matches the color of my newly sewn project. Earrings are my next endeavor.

    Along with machine quilting and machine embroidery, I’ve been trying my hand at machine needle felting (punching). Also, the granddaughters and I often do small craft projects together. Recently we discovered an applications on the iPod called Play Dough. It shows how to make play dough items, such as the cupcakes, ice cream and rainbows we’ve made so far. I like to incorporate crafting to help teach my 4 year old granddaughter to read. One of her favorites is to make her letters by gluing macaroni or beans to form the letters and then adding pictures from magazines whose first letter (sound) is the letter being worked with. I also take the granddaughters to Frogs and Pollywogs for arts and crafts as well. They have a weekly program for pre-schoolers and well as a an afternoon program for school age. The girls have made finger puppets, rock pets, robots (from tin cans), pencil buddies and more.
