Profile Information

About Me
A Christian ranch wife of 33 years (and counting) in southwestern Nebraska, I'm also a mother of two grown children, both married, and now grandma to four 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,  it's a while since we were chatting.  I do hope you and the family are coping with the world crisis we are all coping with.  You like us will be living a distance from others, but it's still difficult.  The business will eventually suffer, plants do not stop needing attention, especially this time of year.  We have over 40,000 different varieties of trees and shrubs, lots of work with a skellitan staff, most are isolating, David is in the office full time, Simon our youngest son is living in a caravan on the nursery because his wife holly is vulnerable she has a lung problem, he thought it was the best decision, but not easy for them.. my eldest son Julian, had a serious accident he fell 18ft from a structure on the nursery onto concreteconcrete, he broke 2 bones in his neck, he has been very lucky, he is now having to wear a neck brace but can move all his limbs, just now very stiff, his body was totally bruised.  This happened just before the break of the virus, now the hospitals r so busy, its difficult for him to get he next Mri so he has to keep the brace on longer.  Ge is becoming rather frustrated as he doesnt sleep well it on, we have been very worried, now the virus.  What next do i wonder.  Well, enough of negative news, i have been doing some sewing.  I thought i would use some of the mountain of scraps i have.  Im making a string quilt for one of my grand daughter, iv never done one like this, hope it turns out ok.  Gardening and walking seems to be the highlight.  I would love to hear how you are, what u r doing and how you are coping.  New York  seems to gave taken a big hit, the same as London.   Take care, ttfn marianne UK 

"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
