Profile Information

About Me
A Christian ranch wife of 29 years (and counting) in southwestern Nebraska, I'm also a mother of two children (27 year old daughter; 25 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

So glad you stopped by and commented on by blog.

Have not been quilting for a while - am  totally a novice.  And do love hand quilting.  Did the Double Wedding Ring throw for my daughter all by hand.  Such a joy using scraps from materials I had left from things I had sewn for her.

Now, have got to get busy with the quilt am making for my son.

"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
