Profile Information

About Me
A Christian ranch wife of 30 years (and counting) in southwestern Nebraska, I'm also a mother of two children (28 year old daughter; 26 year old son), both married - and now grandma to three grandsons.

I operated a medical transcription business from my home office for 20 years. I'm a hand quilter and a very poor machine quilter. A long-arm machine would be a dream to own.

Music, working alongside my husband, most types of hand work, and reading are some of my favorite things to do. I'm a simple girl who is very content to just stay at home. The earthy smells of rain, my husband's aftershave, sweaty horses, line-dried sheets, and newborn babies are favorites.

As a traditional quilter who likes antique quilts, I love the stories quilts tell. Making quilts, heirloom or utility, to pass on to family, friends and kids as an expression of my love is something I enjoy.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique, hand quilting, embroidery, general sewing, other, general crafts

Hi jan.. I seem to have lost your emails, machine had a melt down.  Hope u r well and now settled down after the Christmas busy time.   I am back to normal, but seem to have been busy since decks came down.  I am trying to finish all the bits and pieces I have started, before I start any big project.  I bought an embroidery CD Rom with patterns of Christmas on it all in rework, I have transferred the CD onto a memory stick, but don't seem to see pics on my machine.  I have just emailed the USA company  bird brain designs they r  a USA  company, have you heard of them?  Must go now bedtime.

Hello, how was Christmas with 6our family.  We had a busy family Christmas, eating, games, walks etc, at the end of the day at 9pm when they all left David and I just flopped and dealt with the debris the following morning, we had a truly wonderful Christmas,  of course beginning with midnight mass.  We have been staying at the lake district for New year with four of our friends, it's about 2hrs drive away, the mountains looked wonderful with the peaks displaying their coats of snow and frost quite beautiful.  Now for the new years resolutions, we are full of good intentions, but........look forward to hearing from you. Bye Marianne

Good morning prairie, it seems funny addressing you with that name, what is your Christian name?

Well I'm almost ready for the big day, just food shopping to do now and set the table for 10.  It's my turn for Christmas, the boys go with their families in-laws one year and us the following year we all think that's fare.  I love having them all, to see the cousins developing a strong bond is wonderful and I see my own boys now men being good parents, it gives a jump to ones tummy..  what do you do at Christmas and what is the weather like at the moment.  I'll give u my email address, it's sometimes better communicating  that way and not taking the space for quilt talk, if u understand my meaning.    mhill4@gmail.com

Look forward to hearing your Christmas plans, my sewing room is now in sleep mode...ha ha ha.

"Quilting is my passion--the thing I do that is entirely an expression of who I am." Joana Simmers

"How could we ever get through all that life has to offer without being able to sit in a quiet spot and take a few stitches. It makes the rest bearable because out of the melee of life something beautiful is created. Something in our hands that we can see and something in our hearts that we can't see but is nevertheless very real." Jodi Cramer
