About Me

I have been sewing for many years, primarily for reenacting (or, as a kid, dress-up) opportunities. I also dabble in other visual media, such as fiber crafts (spinning, knitting, crocheting, embroidery, quilting, cross-stitch...) and things like calligraphy and painting.

Over the years I tried other ways of showing people what I made when they asked; but scheduling "show you" fashion shows, or carrying around an album all the time, were clumsy at best! When I was in college, I began exploring whether a blog would fit my needs as a portable photo album, which would also allow me to explain a bit. I've loved this medium! While I don't always post regularly, as you'll notice by the dates of the various posts, I like sharing new projects and documenting old items as I find them, and am happy to receive any comments you may have.

Currently, my interests focus on American Civil War (early 1860s) women's clothing, as well as some medieval clothing, knitting, crocheting, and generally doodling about with fiber arts.

I sell some of the things I make on my store, Greenleaf Dry Goods, on Etsy:
