Hello, I'm Angela.
My grandmother taught me to cross stitch when I was 4 and I haven't stopped stitching since. Hand embroidery of all sorts is my favorite, mostly self taught from old books. Past projects include quilt tops and hand quilting, clothes and household items. If there's a craft out there I have probably tried it or have plans to do so. I have an etsy store where I sell my handmade glass saint pendants among other things. Beading is a newer interest that blends well with the embroidery.
My full time work during the week is handling Ebay and Etsy accounts & sales for local company that buys & sells jewelry and precious metals. On Wednesdays there's a small sewing circle to attend with friends where we work on whatever projects we have going.
I'm participating in TAST only, as I don't feel I can add more right now. I'm planning to make a fabric art journal of even-weave linen, a page for each stitch and I'll let the stitches dictate how that proceeds. I'd rather not plan it out very much but let the creativity take over as I go.
I'm single and live with 2 cats near Houston in a small house decorated in a Pre-Raphaelite style. The medieval to renaissance time period is my favorite and collecting vintage and antique cookbooks has become a passion, trying out the recipes with varying degrees of success and pleasure.
