Welcome

Welcome to Gammaw Geek and Grammy's Hands. Computers, crafts, crocheting, spinning yarn, weaving - you will find a liitle bit of all of it and more on these pages.

A little pat on the back for me....While working on my own genealogy, I got involved with indexing the 1940 Census for FamilySearch.org. I fully intend to continue indexing for them. S

About me

I love tinkering with computers. I also believe in keeping your computer safe and secure from Internet varments and doing it for free. 

Free is good.

I also love to create.

So I do crafts. 

I crochet and have written a few patterns. I love to spin yarn and work with natural fibers - wool, alpaca, mohair to name a few. I also use manmade yarns when the need arises.

I  work with wood that nature has given us. I make crochet and Tunisian hooks and other small items from wood harvested after a storm or yard waste. 

The beauty is amazing.

On these pages you will find:

  • Ways to secure your computer from  Internet varments -- cost free.
  • Quality freeware from the Internet
  • The crafts I indulge in.
  • Whatever else I happen to write about.

OUt of the darkness


I will be walking in the 2012 Walk for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. I am on a team with my daughter and her husband, he lost his brother to suicide.
When she asked me to walk with them, I started thinking about it and there have been 5 people in my life that were lost to suicide that had a direct impact on me or a member of my family.
I have a direct link to my personal donation page if you would like to help me with my fundraising:
