My name is Mary Ellen. I was brought up in Central New York by a wall paperer/painter postal worker father and a very talented knitter/crocheter/embroiderer state stenographer mother. They instilled in me a strong work ethic and a need to create art in my spare time. Now after 30 years, I’m taking an early retirement from the post office to start working on my art, which includes quilting, knitting, crochet, sewing, and embroidery in a rather eclectic mix.
I live a quiet life, still in Central New York, with my husband, a dog and two cats. Our three sons are grown and on their own, no grandchildren yet. I’m about to have a lot of time on my hands and am looking forward to doing all those things that have been on my list for so long. Reading, travelling, maybe try some new arts like pottery and weaving.
