Profile Information

About Me
A Christian ranch wife of 29 years (and counting) in southwestern Nebraska, I'm also a mother of two grown, married children (27 year old daughter; 25 year old son) - and now grandma to two grandsons with another expected in late June 2017.

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

Hello! What a nice surprise to hear from you. I'm so glad baby Ian is doing so well. He made up for lost time. I can't believe he's 17 lbs. I'll bet Merrick has fun with him. My little Kenadie just turned 3 last week and she has finally hit 29 lbs. She doesn't stay still long enough to gain any weight. Both the little girls turned 3 and William 9 in March. March is a busy month.
I don't get much done except watch Kenadie 11 1/2 hrs. a day. DSIL hasn't had to work on Fridays so he keeps her. Everyone works 10 hrs. a day and DD is usually there longer.
I've been trying to quilt but am having a lot of trouble with a bad hip. It looks like a hip replacement is in the near future which I'm not looking forward to but you do what you have to do. My niece and I are in a couple of quilt block challenges. It's a lot of fun but I'm falling behind.
You're going to keep busy with grand babies. How much fun! Maybe you'll get a girl this time. It doesn't really matter as long as they're healthy. Well, I need to go to bed. We get up at 3:45 a.m. Ridiculous! DH wants to work at least until the end of this year before he retires. I'm ready. Keep safe and give all those babies lots of hugs. Blessings to all of your family......................

Hahaa, no problem.  Thanks for telling me.  Trying to fix that in the edit post section.

Thanks again.  :o)

Thank you for the comment on my UFO quilt.  It has been a fun quilt to work on and I LOVE free motion quilting...very liberating, just put it on the machine and do what strikes you.

 I didn't realize it was closed, will have to figure out what I did?  :o)
