My name is Andrea----but please, call me ANNE...no one calls me Andrea...
I love to spin, crochet, weave, punch needle, do locker hooking & naalbinding, am learning and getting better at needle felting, and just to stay up with the "joneses-knitters" loom or rake knitting...cannot use needles, have some minor paralysis in my left hand. I can't use the middle, ring nor the pinkie finger on that hand, so needle knitting has been frustrating, so I switched to loom knitting. I've always been more comfortable with crochet, and I know how to change a pattern from knitting to crochet with it looking just as nice. And I know natural knitters who couldn't tell what I loom knitted next to the same item done on needles...soooo-
But first and foremost I am a wife, mother and a mommy to THE MOST Wonderful little Affenspinscher pup, now 2 1/2 yrs old, named Ruby, and she is my little GEM!!!
My honey, Paul and I have lived together for about 24+ years and we have a 21 yr old, beautiful, talented, intellegent daughter, Stephani...I may be a little biased, but that's my right as her mother....but she has made either Dean's List or President's list in college consistently... lol
If anyone needs fiber email me at firstname.lastname@example.org being a fiber (w)hor(e)der...lol, I have pounds and pounds... I hate to sell it, because each purchase was carefully thought out, but if anyone is in need and funds are short, just email or call me on my cell 484-529-4597. All I ask is that you pay the shipping, which I can tell you in advance.
I have an etsy store AnniesArtifacting, but it wasn't a great success in the beginning... I'm hopefully going to kill two birds with one stone with my etsy store-I need to clean out my craft room, and do a major destash of anything NOT fiber related. It's my New Year's resolution to get this done before my birthday on Jan. 15th
OH-and I want to start my own blog about being an artist and craft person and handicapped too. I am permanently disabled due to a brain and spinal cord injury, and my condition is debilitating...or getting worse...lol -and my numerous medications for chronic pain and fibromyalgia make me sleepy a lot of the time.
Blessings to all artists and crafters!!! Let's keep up the HOME MADE ways to pass down to future generations!!!
