About Me


Hi, I am Ruth Collins. For years I have gone looking for who I should be. I have struggled with knowing who I was. Through the process of starting this blog, I was searching for just the right title header. I asked my husband and he, being very astute and understanding me, suggested ‘being Ruth’. I loved this and realized the most important thing for me is to be Ruth, hence

…  the importance of being Ruth.

I am Ruth, I love to garden, sew, knit, crochet, and draw. Everything creative puts in my happy place. This is a blog dedicated to all that I love, each season has it’s focus, Spring and Summer, gardening. Fall and Winter handiwork (sewing, crocheting and knitting). I am excited to share this world I have and hope it puts you all in a happy place.
