Well, I am a retired senior lady who enjoys her hobbies.
I love to create with my abilities that God has given to me. I live in the Southwest as I moved here when I retired from work back in 2009. Previously I lived in the Midwest part of this country….Illinois. It got too cold , too expensive, and just too damn political for my taste. I needed change and freedom from all of the madness that was in Chicago. I am extremely happy now. I live in a senior retirement community where I can live my life the way I want to. My home is small and filled with the things that I love. I have beautiful cactus plants, lots of quail and rabbits scurrying around my property. The sun is always shining and music is constantly filling the rooms where I reside. I dabble with the beads, I am learning to play the organ, and I dabble in writing. I have friends that I pal around with as we do lunches, movies, and whatever suits our fancy. The rec centers provide me with exercise and swimming. So, basically I am living my life …my retired life with no fan fare. Quiet, simple and very happy.

Uh…what is a selvage ? You lost me and I am unable to properly answer your inquiry. And what are puckers ? Is that when the beads don’t lay flat or flush with your warp threads ? Again, I am very lost. Thank you for the complement on my loom work. I learned from watching how [...]
