About me

Gender FEMALE
Location Trinidad, CO, United States
Introduction I love scraps. I love vintage quilts and I love preserving the stories of quilters and the quilts they make. I am a Homemaker who has a passion for all things quilty. I especially like a scrappy look. I love the challenge of working with scraps, remnants and cast-offs to make something beautiful. This doesn't just apply to quilting, but with life in general! I enjoy cooking and frequently watch the Food network for new ideas and to learn about food pairing profiles. Given the fact that Dave & I are empty-nesters, this means that we have plenty of leftovers. I love accepting the challenge of transforming leftovers into new meals. I also have a love for scrapbooking and have a serious need to get caught up... I am two years behind! This blog was originally started in 2011 when I participated in a weekly scrapbooking challenge. I soon lost interest in the challenge and the blog went to the wayside until I submitted a block for volume 8 of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks publication in 2013. Shortly after, I decided that this would be a great way to document and share the stories of my quilts and some of the thoughts and experiences of life as I make them.
