Introduction Hi there. I have lived in Az 60+ years and haven't melted. I have 2 children, 5 grand children and one great grand child. I retired from accounting June 15 2016 but who's counting? Five years ago I walked into a new quilt shop next to a Subway store and as they say, the rest is history. When I was in my 20's I sewed a lot for my family but did not know about "quilts". I know, a sheltered life...When I walked into that quilt shop I didn't want to leave! Just touching the beautiful fabrics was such joy. I was and still am in awe of the artistry of quilting. I also enjoy cooking but now that needs to be quick and easy to save free time for quilting. Recipes to follow later. We have a small patio garden here in Peoria Az, that I enjoy daily as long as I don't get sidetracked by HGTV or the Hallmark Channel. Those flowers are easier to photograph. I am inspired by many quilters but especially Jenny Doan and Eleanor Burns. Yay for using the right side of my brain! It will be fun to share my love of quilting and hope you are inspired and encouraged to be creative. Enjoy
Interests quilting, cooking, gardening, reading, sewing and home made goodies.
