Occupation retired
Location Houston, TX, United States
Introduction I'm grandma to two wonderful grandkids (hence the name Grandma Barbara) and mom to a great son. I'm retired from over 30 years with the federal government. I discovered rag quilting a while back and found I could sell my creations. I've also learned to make lovely tote bags and strip-pieced quilts. Now I list my creations on - a great place to find all sorts of handmade items. My latest endeavor is making rag quilts from baby clothes. This makes a great heirloom to pass down thru the family.

Interests Rag quilts, tote sewing, strip-pieced quilts, reading, genealogy
Favorite Music Just about everything, depending on my mood.
Favorite Books The Harry Potter series, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, anything by Sue Grafton, Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books and the Clan of the Cave Bear series.

You can whistle and steam can whistle, so why do you sing in the shower?

Because I sing better than I whistle.
