Let's hear more about MaineLeeCrochet:

1. First things first, tell us a little more about yourself...

My name is Ginny Aldrich, I am married for 13 years tomorrow (17th). I have 1 daughter and 1 step son. I also have 2 grandchildren from my daughter, girl is 91/2 and boy is almost 7.

2. What is your regular job?

I work in a credit union as a teller so I get to count other peoples money all day long!

3. Do you Haiku?

I do not haiku-and I'm not even gonna try.

4. Picture of your workspace (as is, no cheating!)

My workspace is my couch in my living room-nothing to great. It isn't messy or have a bunch of stuff all around. sorry to disappoint.(not picture worthy)

5. What inspires you?

Anything can inspire me-could be a big white puffy cloud, or my granddaughter saying that her baby doll needs a new blanket. She will end up with the blanket and a sweater set to go with it.

6. I read in your profile that you make your own maple syrup! How did you get into doing that? And how do you do it? I bet it's delicious!

As far as the maple syrup we just decided to try this year-we tapped 13 trees, hung some milk jugs on them and gathered the sap. My hubby had the pleasure of boiling it down. It takes about 10 gallons of sap to get 1 pint of syrup. You have to keep it at a certain temp-so it doesnt turn to sugar. We ended getting 2 gallons of syrup this spring and it is the best-sweetest syrup I've ever had. Will definatly do it again next year.

7. You are so talented and make such gorgeous items. How long have you been crocheting for and what made you decide to start?

I have been crocheting since I was about 10 years old. My gram taught me by sitting in front of her. I am left handed so that made it more difficult. All patterns are made for right handed people so I have to turn them around for me. I have really been getting into it for the past 5 years. I finally sat down and told myself I was going to figure out a pattern and make something from it. I did and the rest is as they say history.

8. Which item in your store is your absolute favorite to make and why?

Favorite item would have to be my blue heather cloche. I love the way it looks and feels when you wear it. It's very easy to make and can be done in any color or yarn.

Thank you Ginny for doing this giveaway! I love all your pieces, you have such a great talent!

I love to crochet. Although lately I don't get to make anything for my house. I've been trying to get baby blankets done. I got a new granddaughter in Feb., I got her blanket done. Our niece is expecting next month. We have 2 friends and 2 stepsons girlfriends ( one is having twins)expecting this year. I think I'm going to have to cheat and make some quilts.
