Short Biographical Sketch:

Lived in a tipi for a short time in the mountains of Colorado in early 1970s.

1971 to 1975 - Gave birth to all my babies at home with no doctor. Lived in a school bus in southern Kansas for a short time in 1974.

1970s and 1980s - Raised my children, while being a stay-at-home mom.

1990s - Full time customer service agent, including training new hires. Conducted community education classes in calligraphy.

2002 - 2013 - Executive assistant to the CEO of a major transportation company.

2013 to now- Retired, sold my house, and lived in my minivan during the summer. Did some house sitting in the mountains of Colorado.Then moved to Oregon and rented a tiny apartment, sold my car, and walked or took the bus everywhere.

2014 - Wrote my first crochet pattern and published it on Ravelry as a free download. I saw it was downloaded hundreds of times, which prompted me to get serious about pattern writing. Had the pattern tested and, as a result of excellent feedback from my testers, re-vamped the entire pattern. The upgraded pattern is available for purchase in my Ravelry store.

2015 – January - I have imported my three patterns into Loveknitting’s web site, to make them available to a wider audience, especially customers in Europe. My design efforts are still in a fledgling state and I consider myself a hobbyist, instead of a business. June – I bought another minivan and traveled across the US through several states, visiting relatives and exploring our lovely country. As of September 2015, enjoying an extended stay with a generous relative on her farm in a rural area near Kansas City. I love creating crochet designs, writing patterns, and having them tested. I also love teaching others to crochet. This is the most fun I’ve had in years!

2016 - I have traveled extensively this year and published five more crochet patterns. I have used a tech editor for the first time and she is worth her weight in gold! I have had several patterns tested here on Ravelry and I love the thrill of seeing my designs come off the hooks of my wonderful testers.

2017 - Working on more snowflake hexagon patterns.
