A long time ago in a galaxy far away ...
well, maybe not that long ago ...
I was crocheting Barbie clothes for my daughter who never really played with dolls.
However, I did.
When I was a kid, I took scraps from my Grandmother's quilting supplies and made clothes for my Ginny doll.
I also spent a good part of my youth making my own clothes, thank you Simplicity, Vogue and Butterick.
I began to collect patterns and found crocheting to be wonderfully relaxing.
I am an avid reader and love libraries and book stores.
I originally bought my patterns, yarn and thread from Super Yarn Mart.
I loved walking through the isles of yarn just like I loved walking through the isles of books
Sad to say, that store is long gone. I still
Because of my husband's work, we became emeshed in computers fairly early.
I don't really remember how it all came about,
but eventually my husband suggested I get a website and
possibly sell the things I made.
I started out on Netcom and my site
was completely designed and set up by my son.
He used the pictures I took to make the nice presentations here.
My husband came up with the name "Fanciful Threads."
After a while, my son found a program for me so I could do the webpage myself and,
when I began adding non-crochet
content, he registered my domain name, "Arrow's Flight."
I was on RoadRunner for a while, then I moved to Geo-Cities
and my page now resides on my son's server.
I'm afraid that one of these days he is going to want to use the space and I'll
have to find a new place
....but I'm sure he'll help me, if it comes to that.
My son put a lot of work into making my first web-site and this is my way of thanking him.
