from south central PA!! Don't let my username scare you off-I'm not really cranky(well, yeah, sometimes) I love sewing on the old hand crank sewing machines and treadles;hence, crankymae. Other hobbies are gardening, voracious reader, and pinching pennies til they scream for mercy. Married 44 years, one son, one grandson and one great daughter-in-law. Hope I can add some useful input to the group! I certainly have enjoyed reading past posts!
