About Me
I'm a happily married mom of two grown boys and grandma to the cutest little girl you ever saw (I know--I'm biased). I'm also a cat lover but at the moment only have 1 spoiled kitty.

I started tole painting after taking classes with a friend many, many years ago, and then started quilting after coming to work at Crafts Americana in 2001. I still enjoy doing both although finding the time to do either is a challenge right now.

Here at Crafts Americana I work with our fabric and thread vendors handling orders, and our warehouse fabric team scheduling kits.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique
My pets are awesome!
My kitty is Oliver

This is the latest project I did for the Gifty Galore group.  I used our Indigo Patchwork fabrics.  It was a lot of fun!

Thanks Laraine for your comment on my quilt top "Colored Ribbons."   I am lucky that I had purchased a number of the solids from CT when they were on sale.  They really helped "make" this pattern when I was asked to test it.  One of these days I am hoping to get some black batting purchased and then get it pin basted and quilted.

Hi Laraine, thanks for requesting to be my friend. Ok, now you are going to think I'm a total nut....(well, maybe that's correct...) but I clicked the accept button before reading you little message thinking it would still be available....BUT....not...it went poof! LOL So, I know you commented on the Origami bag photo, but that's about it. If you had a question, please re-ask. And I'm sorry for being so air headed today.  It has just been one of those weeks!
