Life in the +1876

Hi,  I am winsome..  I have been into crochet as far back as I can remember. I think I was attending all age school. I saw my mother making crochet hats. From there I learn to crochet. I find it very relaxing, so it has become one of my hobbies. I started creating my own stitches and I started making little purse for myself. People saw my little purse and encouraged me to make them and sell, so I got into it big time just going around and showing what I can do until I have become more of a master on crocheting from bags to blouses and what ever u want. I even crochet a whole blanket.

Back in 1999, I went to England and there I discovered another thing I am really fond of and that’s tapestry. It’s a form of stitch that’s done on canvas. This I really enjoyed doing. It takes me a few weeks to complete a whole cushion, but I just enjoy doing this I have made so many cushions from this.  I have a few pieces that I am yet to complete into cushions, so I’ll make myself busy doing these things,

Card making is another one of my hobbies, I have been making cards from as far back as I can remember in school, I was always fascinated with art, so card making comes natural for me. I love doing it. I do personalized cards and anything u ask I try to use my imagination and bring something to the table
