We lived in Iowa for many years, but moved to NW Arkansas in 2010. It is a wonderful place to live and we are very happy here. I used to do a lot of garment construction and alterations when in IA, but now only do quilting. It has become my hobby of choice.
We have three married daughters and 7 grandchilren, ranging in age from 9 to 21 years. I enjoy spending time with them, but also treasure my time at home with my hubby doing our own thing.
Hi Jan, yes small world !
I am from Costa Rica, my family lives in San Joaquin ,Heredia and we have a small quilt store there, I am living next week to show my book in Costa Rica and visit my family too .
I do have it! It's under my utility stitches. I had to play with the width and length settings a little to get it big enough but I really like how it looks. Thank you, thank you.....I'm going to try it. I can't live long enough to learn all these gadgets on this machine!
Hey Jan, I love your new pics, especially the notebook cover and swing purse. I have wanted to make a swing purse for a while. Maybe I should make one in Halloween fabric! I bet your DH Loves his new shop. And have you finished his pink gingham curtains? I hope they have lots of lace.
Sounds fun! Thanks for the datails of your quilt show. I too am just making small quilts right now since I don't have a long arm. Plus, it is nice to finsh them sooner. :) I have 4 young children so some days I just stare longingly at my sewing table. ha ha I enjoy buying fabric and puting them together to make something someone will enjoy. Thanks for sharing pics. of projects that you've done.
