About

I have always enjoyed cooking.  I LOVE making good food for myself and my loved ones.  I feel out of balance if I go for too many days without having time to cook a decent meal.

I like making things.  Sewing is  my hobby of choice.  I prefer making clothing, mostly for myself, occasionally for my daughter and others.  One thing I like about sewing is that I can be creative without being artistic.  I also like that I can make things that are useful.  I have recently taken up knitting – it fulfills the same creative itch as sewing but is more portable.

In my previous life I worked as a software engineer.  In 2009 I decided to stop working so I could be a full-time mom to my beautiful, challenging daughter with multiple special needs.  That was one of the best decisions I ever made!

My husband and I are fledgling vegetable gardeners.  We planted our first garden in Summer 2010 with mixed success and plan on improving every year!
