|Occupation||Counted Thread Needlework and Quilting Designer/Creator/Finisher/Teacher|
|Location||West Des Moines, Iowa, United States|
Needlework/Quilting is my passion, obsession, and career.
Who am I? I am a private person....a self-proclaimed control freak...most times a perfectionist....beyond organized....super analytical....and a little bit obsessive compulsive. I have a deep passion for all things done with a needle and thread - a lover of fabrics, fibers, and textiles. I am an admirer of the creative, unique, and artistic.
What will you read about on my blog? My needlework, sewing, quilting, and machine embroidery projects and ideas - things that inspire me - daily ramblings - and perhaps some insight into my design business.
I started Blue Ribbon Designs in early 2004; I specialize in original counted thread cross stitch patterns and quilting designs along with specialty hand finishing of needlework smalls, custom quilting projects, and teaching needlework/sewing/quilting techniques.
I absolutely adore my Husqvarna Viking Designer Diamond, my Huskylock s25, and my AccuQuilt Fabric Cutters.
I hope you will follow me on this journey...a creative outlet for my passions and obsessions.
