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.

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.
