I live in rural Ottawa with my husband and two boys. One of my sons has autism which brings it's own challenges, and results in me not being able to have employment away from home. I was a bookkeeper for 18 years, and do a bit of bookkeeping from home for a few small clients. We have a lot of chickens for eggs, ducks and a turkey! I have been crocheting since I was 7, and off and on over the years have done projects sporadically. In 2018 I started doing a lot more crochet, and I now have so many projects on the go! I am not currently a designer, and all of my item (so far) are patterns that I have purchased or were free from crochet designers. My preference is to hook larger, artisan quality pieces, preferably home decor items as opposed to clothing. We also have a large vegetable garden and I do a lot of canning and freezing for the winter months. I'm a sourdough bread junkie and bake a loaf almost daily, cancer survivor and animal lover!
