Got married to a Mauritian and since then been living on this beautiful Island Mauritius .I have been knitting and crocheting doll clothes since the age of 7 years . At the age of 11 I started knitting a baby cardigan and beanies during my primary school years . After my matriculation I went to the nursing college to start my career in the nursing profession . I managed to design and sold my very first pattern at the age of 21 years ( about 33 years ago ) to a American Magazine Better Homes and Gardens Hobbies and Craft .
