About Me
In 1989, I started my first quilt with the help of a friend. It took me 5 years to finish it !!

In 2001, I decided to make a king-sized quilt of my own design and really struggled with it. But I finished it in about 6 months.

In 2004, I decided it was time to take some classes. What a great idea that was !!

I have since finished 14 quilts and several table runners, and have a few quilts in progress. Isn't that true of everyone !! Classes were the trick !!

I also love English paper piecing and hand embroidery. I just wish there were more hours for sewing !!

Hi Cheryl, I believe I would like the pattern and info. on the stocking. I have been trying to teach my granddaughter to sew and this is as far as she has gotten. She found a kit I had ordered from CT on EPP and she decided that she would like to do it. She has cut shapes out of the insert cards from magazines to use and really likes doing EPP. I think she would be glad to have a new purpose to work toward and I know that I will try it myself. If you think you need to send the info privately then you or I will have to do an invite for friendship so we can go to the inbox. Thanks for sharing....
