About Me
I am a very happily married mother of three beautiful daughters; Sarah who is 34 and Kaitlyn and Allison who are 23 year old identical twins. My first sewing was in 6th grade for a Girl Scout merit badge, and I was hooked! I have been quilting for about 16 years, and love it. I also enjoy rubber stamping, scrapbooking, reading and shopping! My addictions other than quilting are jewelry and purses. I "retired" a couple of years ago because of rheumatoid arthritis, so now I can't make excuses for not sitting down to my machine.

Busy, busy...

Posted on February 10, 2010 at 9:25am 15 Comments

For those of you who have written, I haven't forgotten about you. Yes, I have been quite busy getting through the holidays and trying to keep up with our teenagers. Now even more has come into our lives I will attach a picture below. Maybe then you will see why I am feeling like a sleep-deprived new mother.

This is Riley...

Fundraiser for my daughter, Sarah

Posted on February 3, 2010 at 10:42pm 5 Comments

***NOTE: This fundraiser was organized and is being handled by my friend Vickie, who is a retired professor from the University of Northern Iowa. The fact that she cares enough to want to help my daughter is very humbling. Please read on, and if you feel moved to help, know that it will mean more than words can say. Thanks, Mary

Donation opportunity!!! If we all contribute, we can really help Sarah! Thank you so much! Thanks for helping to share this need!…


In the blink of an eye, life can change.

Well, this is something I never wanted to have to write. I can still hardly believe I have to, but if I don't do it now, I'll attempt to put it off forever. It's sort of like thinking if you ignore a problem long enough, it will go away.

After a hopeful beginning, Sarah's news from Mayo yesterday was not good. But let me say I want to start by thanking God for my daughter! She is alive, healthy and happy; although saddened and shocked as we all are. I still have her here, can put my… Continue

Mayo Clinic, the hospital and tests...OH MY!!!

Posted on October 22, 2009 at 7:00am 14 Comments

Sarah made her first visit to the Mayo Clinic yesterday to get new opinions on her vision problems that have resulted from her tumor and brain surgery back in March. Here is what I know so far. She saw Dr. Shelly Cross, in Neurology. Both Sarah and Nate (my SIL) liked her a great deal, felt she had a great bedside manner, was very thorough, etc. She spent hours with them and has Sarah set up for a lot of consults over the next two weeks. So, Sarah will stay here with us (YAY!!!!!!!!!!) until… Continue

Sadness in a Small Town

Posted on September 24, 2009 at 6:08am 23 Comments

I know my extended Quilt With Us family are quick to pray when the need arises. Sadly, yesterday there was a tragic accident here in town involving two high school boys, friends of my daughters. One boy, Jacob, a 15 year old freshmen lost his life. CJ, a Senior, is in critical condition at St. Mary's Hospital, Rochester, MN.

I ask you to remember the family of Jacob Gleason in your prayers as they deal with their tremendous loss and for CJ Shakal, that he has the strength to fight… Continue

Hi Mary, Took awhile to return the comment. But yes a boxer pup. He is alot bigger now. Him and the lab are pals. We have a pool and the boxer now swims cause his brother the lab does. At first he was scared but he realized the lab was having so much fun he must try too. Now when ever it is hot you find them both in the pool cooling off. It is funny.

Mary you must not have been on the site much lately. I miss you. Thanks for answering back but I see that you have not had any comments since my last comment on Jan 11th. I hope you are still enjoying your friends here on QWU. I am sorry about Sarah's diagnosis but like you said they are not the ulitmate physician, we do have a Great Physician and with Him all things are possible.

There is a lady I wish you would check out. Her name is "Jennifer Rothschild". She is a christain lady and legally blind. You would never know it by seeing her because she had sight for many years and then something went wrong in her teens and she began to lose her sight. The bible study I am doing right now is called "Me, Myself and Lies" and it is about our self talk or thought closet as she calls it. She talks a lot about how she could have let her thought destroy her after she became blind but God worked through her blindness to make her who she is today. I really wish you would google her and read a couple of her studies/books. I truly believe she would be an inspiration to you and Sarah.

I am so happy for you that Sarah is moving closer. 3 hrs is much better than 10!! For sure. That is about as far as from here to Birmingham Alabama. You are such a precious, sweet lady, keep in touch. May God shower all of you with His favor and keep you all in the Shadow of His Wing. In His Love, Linda

Hi Mary, like Joana I have been thinking about you. How are you and did you and yours have a blessed holiday season. We did but I am glad to be getting back to a routine again. I have been sewing like crazy lately and not been on the site as much. But the last week I have been up here more and in the basement too!! I hope you are doing well and Sarah and the rest of your family. Hugs to you, send me an update!!!!

Mary--I wondered how things were going with your family, especially your daughter Sarah. I hope that your family's Christmas was especially blessed because I know you have had a very difficult year. Your quilts were a treat to look at--especially the Thimbleberries one that won you Best of Show. And you have so many pretty purses! Hope you are doing well.

Hi Mary,
Thank you for your comment on my cocoa quilt. I was really unsure of it when I started, it just didn't seem to be coming together the way I'd imagined. But as I keep going, I am more and more happy with it.

I just looked through your pictures....you do some beautiful work!

Hi Mary, Thanks for your reply to finding my friend. Yes I do believe she did work for a housing company but quit sometime this year. I hope it is the same person but her name is spelled Sondra. I will appreciate any help you can give. I do have her address and I can write her but in this day and age we rely on computers way to much, don't we? Pat
