I have been quilting for nearly 15 years or so, and yet there are several things I haven't "made" myself learn yet. I love hand-quilting, but would like to learn to machine quilt on my home machine. I'd also like to become more comfortable with machine applique, although I love needle-turn. I really love traditional quilt patterns, reproduction fabrics, and the history behind quilting....but I would love to learn more about the new techniques in quilting today.
I meet with a group of quilting friends on most Monday nights at a local quilt shop. Our group also is a chapter of Prayers & Squares International, A Prayer Quilt Ministry. We've been making prayer quilts for over 3 years now. It has been a tremendous blessing to be able to give others encouragement, hope, and love during some of the darkest times in their lives.
Besides quilting, I love to read, I crochet some, and have learned to knit this past year (nothing fancy, just a scarf).
My husband and I will celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary this summer; it's just the two of us...no children....no pets.
