Sharing my love of quilting, throwing in bits and pieces of cooking, gardening, prayers and praises, raising a family, keeping my sanity .... not necessarily in that order.
Child of God, wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, quilter, basket lover, amateur photographer, flower and vegetable gardener …….. some a little of who I am, some a lot of who I am, and all a part of me. When I started quilting several years ago, it sparked a passion in my creative side that I never knew existed. I fell in love with it from the very start. I love everything about it, from choosing the fabrics and designing the quilt until the time I finish the last stitch of the binding and everything in between.
I made my first ever Dresden plate block and I do not know why I waited so long!! They look very difficult and I guess I was just was a little apprehensive about tackling it. This made an 18-inch wall hanging. I need to play with the size of the blades in order to make a 12-inch block to put in a shadow box. I see lots and lots of these in my future .... fall quilt, Christmas quilt, 30s ....
God has blessed me with a wonderful husband and children and I love them with my whole heart. The older I get, the more in awe I am of God's grace. I love being a child of the King. I have an incredibly busy job in addition to everything that goes with raising a family and keeping my home in order. I have found that quilting keeps me sane in the midst of the madness.
