Profile Information

About Me
I am a retired nurse who turned 71 in November, 2015. I am a mother of 4 and grandmother of 7, great-grandmother of 3. I made my 1st quilt in 2002 and was hooked. I was lucky enough to work for several years at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, but have had to retire. I started off making pieced quilts and love to paper piece. My husband of 41 years and I have moved from the country, back to the big city of Houston. My quilting is slowing down due to a health condition known as Familial Tremors. My hands shake and quilting even stitches is difficult for me, even on a machine.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, paper piecing, machine quilting, general sewing, garment sewing
My pets are awesome!
Dappled dachshund: Hondra (My best friend and extra child, age 7!).

My Family

I am the mother of 3 boys and 1 girl. My 2 oldest boys, Paul (48), and Frank (46) are my children from my first marriage and they are married to Charlene and Jennie respectively. Paul and Charlene are the parents of Angela (24), Chelsea (24), and Kieran (20). Frank and Jennie are the parents of Shawn (22), and Kailey (19). My only daughter, Polyxeni (Polly, age 3) is divorced from her husband JB and they have no children. Polly is my best friend! My baby son, Richard, is 36. He served in the Marine Corp in Iraq and married Dora when he got out of the Marine Corp in 2008. They had their first child, Ava Xenia, Sept. 16, 2010, and are expecting in Feb. of 2015.  My husband Nikolaos was born in Greece and we have been married for 40 years in August.  I retired from the Nursing profession 6 years ago.

ATTENTION AUSTRALIAN QUILTERS

Posted on March 1, 2016 at 6:36pm 1 Comment

We at Block Swappers, Inc. have lost contact with one of our members.  Her name is Megan Sawyer and she lives in Figtree, Australia.  I think it is in New South Wales.  She was communicating with us until right after Christmas and then she seemed to drop off the face of the earth.  I know she is a grandmother of 4 boys and that she is connected to a quilt guild near her.  I believe she lives alone. We are very worried that something has happened to her.  If you know Megan or…

Hello Carol,  thank u for your reply.  Northampton is about 4 hours from here.  I am in North Yorkshire, but i have had communication with your friend.  I am sure you both had a lovely time in Houston Show, i have heard it is a wonderful show.  Perhaps one day i will fly over.  We had property in Fl for 20 years i did enjoy my annual trip to the USA.  Its quite autumnal here at the moment and the temps are dropping too.  Bye

Hello carol,  lovely to meet you as a cyber sewing friend.  So sorry you are not as able to do as much sewing as you may wish due to your health condition, hope you are able to adapt your interest in some way.  I had a wonderful friend from san antonio, her husband was working in this area of UK.  We had lots of fun times visiting many antique shops, she took so much home.  Her name was flora ezzell.  I hope to hear from you in time. Bye for now Marianne UK
