I own a fabric and yarn shop in the Santa Cruz Mountains, California. I love making vintage-looking gifts for babies, felting handbags, quilting, knitting lace shawls, sewing long skirts and I never have enough time for all the crafts I want to do. I am getting into making softies (animals and monsters). I love vintage images, especially from children's stories.
10 things I like:
I don't like: 1. mean people or anything that looks like something mean people would like. 2. dogs, I mean, they're OK... 3.cheap synthetic material or yarn of any kind 4. anything that you would eat or put on your body that has fake ingredients, like perfume or sugary candy 5.The 80's look -design or style or colors 6. Gaudy jewelry 7. Politics - I'll leave that to someone else.
Ambient, world, Buddha Bar type stuff. Classical Indian Instrumental. Led Zeppelin.
All foreign romantic comedies and period pieces.
I don't watch tv, but I used to watch Knitty Gritty.
Knitting, sewing, quilting and applique, embroidery, illustration...
