I've been married to best guy in the world for over 39 years, and we have 2 wonderful children. No grandchildren yet, but we do have a granddog, a chocolate lab called Daisy.
I've been quilting for about 15 years, and have even published a few patterns. My first love is applique.
Hi Dorothy. Yes we enjoy our dogs. Two of them are seniors, 11 and 12, but the other one is only a year and a half. Our weekends are very busy this time of the year, but as long as the weather co-operates we try and get out and enjoy our camp and take the "kids" for walks. I am having a hard time to finish my xmas projects and do my shopping, as well as work. But I shouldnt complain, at least I am able to do all of the above. Happy Holidays to you and yours Dorothy.

Dorothy, your quilts are wonderful! I love them all, but especially the "Elegance in Neutrals." I tried to make a "neutrals" quilt, but it turned out too bold and dramatic. Yours is just so pretty and delicate - just what would be great for a wedding quilt. I also love the "Star Light, Star Bright" quilt and the little bears quilt. 30's fabrics are also a favorite, so the diamond quilt caught my eye, too. I'm still new to needleturn applique, but I especially noticed how your applique adds that special touch to the pieced quilts.
The quilt you commented on is hand quilted by me. I do all my own quilting. Some by hand others by machine. I am just learning the machine quilting and love it for the most part. Still my first love is hand quilting on my special quilts.Do you do your quilting?
