I enjoy writing about the things I like. My hobbies include gardening, crochet, Bible reading, home remedies and learning how to make things myself.

I am a published crochet designer. I enjoy designing patterns and you'll find many crochet articles here.

Having tried all of my own laundry and cleaning products, I've found that Grandma's old recipes are better than the products on the shelves. I like to can and garden. Finding new uses for the things I already have is fun too.

Besides Hubpages, I have several websites. These include Barbs Free Crochet Patterns, Homesteading in a Subdivision arond Doll Patterns on the Web.
