Christie's Cottage: Wedding Veils.Paintings.Market Totes. Eco-Friendly.

Pincushion, Hand Embroidered Fleece,


In her own words...

I like to paint, sew, knit and crochet. Anything that I can recycle is more fun! I set up at craft shows almost every weekend from April through mid-December.

I like to give truly unique items. I appreciate handmade gifts. Since I am always making something, I know that the item I am giving, may have given the artist the peace of mind they needed to get through their day. A smile and nod of acknowledgement from someone seeing the "lost art" of handmade being accomplished.

My great-grandmother worked with her hands until they worked no more. My grandmother also worked with her hands until they worked no more. I spent a great deal of time with them. More so with my great-grandmother who was also one of the best friends I ever had. I learned that love is easily worked into every handmade item you touch. When I pick up a crochet hook, my great-grandmother's love floods my memory and thus, love is worked right in my piece.
