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

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)

Looking back, I was thinking that was the picture, never knew the story behind it but thought it was a cute idea for hiding stash( mine might come to that point!) and a joke on FB going around.
