About Me
I am a classic old girl haha! Gardening, houseplants, flowers, pets, cooking, and anything sewing /quilting. I swear I was born into a 60 year old mind, right from the start. I am a Mama of 2 girls, and a Grandmama of a 2 year old girl and a soon to be newborn little boy. We are hoping to move out of Alaska within the next year or 2, so that we can live out our life with our family and a LONGGGGG growing season!! YAY!! I am actually a late bloomer with sewing, I always loved hand sewing, but just found so many other things were in front of me to begin learning on a machine. And to be honest, I was a little intimidated. In my neck of the woods in Alaska, there are not a ton of groups you can get with. But you are never too old to learn, right?! My Grandmother sewed, but she would not show the girls how, or her recipes...hahaha, strange old girl...she didn't want anyone to outshine her!! STILL makes me laugh! But honestly, I am looking forward to being part of this community, and learning from everyone here. My AMAZING Husband wanted to help me get started, and asked me to look through some machines, and pick the one that spoke to me. So I did, and oh.....almost right away it was the Singer 500a Rocketeer. That machine called to my heart...so he got it for me! And not 3 days later, HERE IN TOWN (NOTHING comes up like this in Alaska, so that was why we were shocked haha), a singer 503 Rocketeer in pristine condition came up on Craigslist, so he got her for me too! So now I am waiting on the both of them to come back from the machine Doc, and I am going to dive in headfirst. Let the adventure begin!
