I love to stitch. I love to bead. I love to read. I love growing roses, learning about silk, I also like wine tasting, and traveling. I like simplicity and elegance, the smell of an ocean breeze, and the feel of sand between my toes. I love a warm fire on a cold winter's night, the light reflecting off a summer lake, the smell of a rose in spring, and the view of the mountains and fresh air in autumn. I love coffee, I love tea, the feel of silk on my skin and stitching with my stitching friends whenever possible.
