About Me
I love quilting, knitting, painting, reading, and traveling. I like all styles of quilts from traditional to modern art quilts, but right now I'm really into traditional blocks, especially stars. I have been quilting for over 10 years. I love playing board games, like Ticket to Ride, and Settlers of Catan, and video games with my family. I also love to make jewelry.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique, paper piecing, hand quilting, machine quilting, embroidery, knitting, other
My pets are awesome!
Herbie (Chihuahua/Pug/Jack Russell Terrier) , and kitties
