My photo
Having a large Scottish heritage that migrated from England into Canada to Maine and other states. I am from a family of 9. Six girls and 3 boys. My dad died young when I was about 8 years old. I have 4 children and 3 step children with the great joy of 20 grandchildren. I worked in financial institutions and accounting for many years. Now I sew and make lots of stuffed animals and many other things. I'm a grandmother that has years of sewing in a wide variety of catagories. Photography has become one of my passions over the years. Nature that God has presented us is one of the greatest to photograph. My family and pets hate to see me with a camera in my hands. The bug took hold at Christmas time taking photos of my children in front of the tree. That became a tradition. Then you have family gatherings, vacations, grandchildren and the list could go on.

Handmade Braided Rug Memories of Grandmother

As I make a braided rug from strips of fabric, it brings back one of the extremely few memories I have of my grandmother. As a child we would hold the ends of the fabric while she braided the pieces together, the beginnings of a beautiful rug beginning. I can't tell you what they looked like other than the fringe of memory that they were beautiful. My grandmother died when I was very young. So all I have are vague memories at the fringe of my mind.

A few years ago I decided I was going to try my hand at making one. I attempted making a round one, but after the beginnings of it sat idle because of an illness that almost took my life. Just recently I decided it didn't please me so took the sewing out and decided to make an oblong one instead. This is the beginning of what it may look like.
