I am a teacher now working as a school guidance counselor. I am married to my soul mate and have a wonderful daughter. I learned to sew from my grandmother. I used to sew my own clothes and sew Halloween costumes for my daughter.
Now I am in love with quilting and embroidering. I have made wall hangings, a quilted bag and lap quilts. I love traditional quilting and blocks but I am also interested in watercolor and three dimensional quilting. I like combining quilting and embroidering as well. I am currently working on a baby quilt with embroidered baby animals on each block.
I am happy to join this club and I am looking forward to learning from eachother.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, machine quilting, embroidery, general sewing
hi.. I have only had the frame about a month. I am still on some practice pieces before I put something in that I have pieced. I got a Grace pro with a Janome 1600. What kind of frame do you have? Have you had yours long?? I hope to put in the SS BOM quilt on this frame. Waiting to get my kit in the mail.. Have a good day.!! Connie..
I WAS ABLE TO GO TO MY QUILT SHOPPE LAST FRIDAY. I DID ENJOY THE SHOP VERY MUCH AND WAS IMPRESSED WITH THEIR SALES. I WAS ABLE TO PICK UP A FEW PIECES TO TAKE BACK TO ILLINOIS WHEN I LEAVE TOMORROW. I WISH I HAD MORE ROOM IN MY SUITCASE BUT THERE IS A 50 LB LIMIT. THANK YOU FOR TELLING ME ABOUT THE SHOP BECAUSE I DO NOT THINK I WOULD HAVE KNOWN IT WAS THERE IT IS KIND OF HIDDEN IN THE MIDDLE. THANKS AGAIN
