My name is Beverly Miller and I am an older mother – again – with two adult children and a 3 year old. I will be blogging about a few things – mainly sewing,crafting, gardening, preserving and the chickens I hope to have soon.
I’m a sewer – have been since my own mother taught me but, I’m not very good. Ah, well. Such is life. I just have to try and try again, heh. I tend to collect fabric and other sewing items, including books and magazines. So, apparel sewing, quilting and cloth doll making. Whew! But, I love every minute of it.
In addition to sewing, I’ve also been a jewelry maker and I dabble in knitting. I’ve never made anything from my knitting but I like that I can take it anywhere and it keeps my hands busy – as if having a toddler in the house doesn’t keep my busy enough!
I’m in escrow on 3 acres in So California which I’m hoping to turn into a small farm with chickens and vegetables. I like growing and preserving my own food since I work in the food industry and I know what most people do not. Trust me, you don’t want to know! But, I still like the idea of being self-sufficient and living a sustainable life.
If you happened to wonder at the name of this blog, it has to do with my nerdiness. The nerd in me still likes to play role-playing games with a large group of friends. I have many alter egos in these games but they are culminate into one character. Hence, the name – Allmother Jove.
