My Bio

My user name is Allycat.  I have a grandchild whose name is Ally and I call her Allycat.  I have quilted for 20 years on and off.  I have a disability now that limits the time I can do any form of art work.  My dream is to win a prize at one of the major quilt shows.  Sewing, painting, art quilts, and other creative avenues make up what I like to do.  Dying fabric is a new technique that I have been trying and I would like to do more.  Michigan is where I live in a small city between Detroit and Chicago.  Our economy here is very bad.  I worked as a photographer and digital imager at the largest utility in Michihgan. I worked at the same place for almost 30 years starting when I was 18.   I was fortunate to be one of the few people that loved their job.  I have three children and 13 grandchildren. My dad passed away a couple of years ago from lung cancer and my younger  brother who was 52 died from a massive heart attack.  He died just a few months after my dad.  At this same time in my life, I lost my job, went on disability, husband left and I lost my home.  I am alright now and will work towards my dream.  I also have a lot of quilts to make for my grandchildren.  I love quilting arts and cloth paper scissors.   Someday I wil lown a long arm quilter so that I can finish all of the quilts I am going to make.
