Grab a cup of coffee or tea, put your feet up, relax, and join us on our Journey of Creativity!
Curls and Q is about two sisters and their journey for creativity: Q = Susan, Curls = Barbara. Barbara has always called us “renaissance women” since we know how to do a little bit of everything!
I am a retired high school teacher. Now I have time for all of my hobbies: knitting, sewing, spinning, paper-crafts, genealogy, reading, etc. You get the picture, a little bit of everything. I should have retired 20 years ago so I’d have more time to explore everything I want to accomplish. A big thanks to both my mother and grandmother for having such a huge impact on my creative life. Mom was a Home Economics teacher and taught me to knit, sew, and cook. All which have brought untold hours of enjoyment to my life. Grandma was a first grade teacher and what a hodgepodge full of craft ideas!! Every time I use Mod Podge she is in my mind! Find me on Ravelry as slgennut.
I work part-time for the Post Office delivering mail. Our mother and grandmother were a great influence to our creativity, including our other 2 sisters. My home is full of these creations done by all of us. Susan and I are the only sisters with a passion for knitting, or should I say all fibers. I can’t wait for our next road trip. I would love to try weaving but another project right now is just too much. See me on Ravelry as babs52knitting.
Family info – I live in a country town in the foothills of San Diego County. Our parents moved to the San Diego area in the mid. 1950’s. I met my husband when Susan and I shared an apartment in San Diego. My husband and I shall celebrate 40 years this year. Our home is on four acres land, no pets just the wildlife. My husband has built a kid’s paradise playland for the grandchildren. We have two boys and five grandchildren; three boys and two girls. Their ages are from eight to two. Our boys live within twenty miles of us, so I get to see them often and babysit.
