I'm a 58 year old woman. I've been married for 37 years & we have 2 sons. I have loved crafting all my life. I usually teach myself & enjoy the relaxation I get from making things. I do crochet, crewel embroidery, macrame, decopage, applique, sewing, cake decorating, minimal carpentery, tie dye & am new to quilting. I love working with children & felt completely at home working in special ed. classes for a total of 20 years.I've also coached or helped coach Special Olympics for about 15 years. My son David is a member of Mensa and my son Derrick has Down syndrome so they were both challenging children in their own way. Hubby Ken has Parkinson's & various other debilitating problems so I am staying at home to care for him. I basically lived in AZ most of my life, we moved to Dallas, TX in 1992 and are now in WONDERFUL Oregon.
