Welcome to my website! You are my honored guest and I'm so glad you've decided to stop by for a little while. I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, and quilter who believes that memories were meant to be held in our arms as well as our hearts.
I've enjoyed sewing since I was a little girl. Growing up, my mom made many of my outfits, and she even made outfits for my Barbie dolls! I still don't know how she managed to sew all those little, itty, bitty clothes... but she did!
Mom taught me that little things mean a lot, and that helping people feel loved and appreciated is one of the best gifts we can give others. She gave me more than just a love of sewing; she gave me a love of caring. She instilled in me a belief that we each have the ability to make a positive effect in the lives of other people. I find that one of the most fulfilling ways to celebrate people and give encouragement to them is by way of offering beauty through the work of my hands.
Quilting came into my life when our boys were still little. Even though I didn't always have the time to create quilts during those years of raising four boys, my passion for it never faded. Now that they are all grown up I am lucky enough to quilt to my heart's content...well, mostly.
I am so glad that you have taken the time to visit my website! I hope you will find the time you spend here to be an uplifting part of your day, and I hope you will feel a little more encouraged to grow in your creative talents and skills...wherever you may be on that journey. Remember, whether you are a new or veteran quilter, we are all beginners in the sense that there is always something new to learn!
