A little about Weezie . . .

 

What different creative mediums do you play around with?

I sew, knit, crochet and craft. Keeping my hands busy and creating for my home, family and friends makes me happy. Recently, I’ve been more about the crafting, especially creating new things from items you find at the local dollar store.

 

When is your most productive time?

I like when the house is quiet – either early morning or late at night. I’ve been known to start cutting out a garment after the kids go to bed and stay up until the wee hours just to get it finished!

 

How many projects do you have going at once?

Um. Too many! I like to knit and crochet blankets that I donate to help keep people warm. I always have a new start going, as they get big and are harder to handle. I take them with me when I need to sit and wait somewhere, like doctor appointments. So, if one is too big, I start a new one! Then, finish off the others while watching TV at night.
