I've been a crafter most of my life. Cross stitch, beaded cross stitch, all kinds of handi craft things. I have recently learned to quilt (Oct. 2009). I am on my third quilt. The first two I hand stitched. This third one is all appliqué and it is a 75x75 so I think I will be machine stitching it. It is a Blue Willow china pattern. I am also making a wall hanging and practicing some new stitches and techniques. I love learning all of this stuff. I am going to the International Quilt Festival in Houston in November. I'm going to take some classes and I am very excited about that. I am working my way to creating my own stuff and not just copying other people's beautiful creations. I'm working on getting a Janome Horizon. I would love to share with and hear from other quilters.
I've been married 31 years. I have three daughters, grown and out of the house. (One is an art teacher) I have three grandchildren. The oldest I home schooled for 5 years. I am a certified teacher and love teaching children. I love teaching them how to get along with one another. My husband and I love to travel and have adventures. The best adventures are the ones that have lasting stories.
