Did you know that you can make a sock elephant from a pair of Rockford Red Heel Socks?

It's been a busy year trying to get organized in keeping up with the creative process!  Thought I'd share some of my one-of-a-kind original sock monkeys!  Yes, they are made with Rockford Red Heel Socks!  These are available on my Etsy site!

Lots of changes for 2015!

It's hard to believe we are approaching the second week of the New Year! Since the holidays, I have been busy redefining my website.  With the help of a wonderful graphic designer named Amy, I am well on my way to having a website that catches the feel of my products. I am so thankful for all her work. 

Check out my website at Folk Art Fibers. If you like what you see in graphics, check out Amybug's Attic.

Here's to a great 2015!

Negative Comments on Facebook

I am amazed at how threatened and negative some people can be in a free country that has free enterprise!  In my business, I don't think I ever accused anyone....and I don't think I want to,  My blog was recently referred to on a Facebook page as a joke.....so be it.  My faith was attacked, as well as my work....so be it.  To anyone I may have offended, it was never my intention.  I don't believe my work is a threat to anyone's business.  If you feel otherwise, I wish you wouldn't.

70th Anniversary of D-Day

If it weren't for World War II I might not have been born.  My mother met my father at Camp Grant in Rockford, Illinois while she was with the Women's Ambulance Corp, and socializing with the troops.  My father was a medical technician with the 5th Army serving the European Theatre and was briefly stationed in Camp Grant.  (The rest is history.)

My father-in-law was also in World War II in the Pacific, and was awarded a Purple Heart.  Although our parents are gone, my family has not forgotten the time and sacrifices they made for their country and their children.

The military tradition lives on as my son is a sergeant in the United States Army National Guard!
