Just for fun, occasionally I will turn the webcam on in the studio so you can commiserate with my creative mess in progress and sew along with me!

Warning -- it's not always neat in here!  I'm not always dressed well or made up with my hair done ---as always, enter at your own risk!

And just so you know, I sing to the radio ---you may want ear plugs!

When am I on?
