Joyce learned to knit, crochet, cross stitch and sew very early in life. She was fortunate to have a Mother who had been a craft teacher and took to it all naturally. Every Fall, after enjoying the great outdoors for the warm months, her fingers get itching to be busy. She has chosen to keep her projects simple, crocheting baby blankets or lap quilts. She enjoys designing her own patterns or adapting existing ones and making sure that no two projects turn out exactly alike.
