FROM ANGIE

Welcome to my site!  I have been designing and making things for as long as I can remember.  It started with original hand sewn outfits for Barbie made from leftover scraps of polyester or whatever my Mom had been working with at the time.  Along the way I started painting, learned to crochet, taught myself to knit, made jewelry, created all sorts of paper crafts, and eventually found quilting.  I am always creating something or designing something to be created.  I am inspired by nature and the sights around me.
