Hi! and thank you for coming by for a visit.

Just a little about me...I live in Weston, a beautiful small town in south Florida. It's just north of Miami and west of Fort Lauderdale - and on the edge of the Everglades! The critters around here can be pretty interesting.

I'm a sewist, quilter, and knitter, and I love making things! And seeing what others have made. I'm joyfully retired after a 30-year career as an international technologies project manager. Much of what I enjoy most - artwork, sewing, garden, home - reflects the beautiful tropical location where I live now, my years of working and living in Latin America, and my love of Latin American cultures.

I often wish sewing bloggers would give their measurements - it would be so helpful. So, from me to you, I'm 5'7", bust 36", waist 32", hips 42" - and my dressform body double is named Emile!

A view of my sewing room at it's very cleanest (absolutely not normal)...
