I have quilted since the 80's and had several years break in between and started back in 2000. I now do a lot of quilts for Quilts of Valor and am trying my hand at art quilts which I am very much liking . I am now a grandma of two beautiful children under two .
No I have only chickens. We went to an alpaca farm close to here to buy dietamatious (sp?) earth and I thought the alpacas had such interesting faces I snapped a few dozen photos for a possible future quilt. http://www.quiltuniversity.com is the web site. After this month Quilt U is on winter break until January but there is a class list always available.
