I am 63 years old. A breast cancer survivor and I love crafts.I have 4 married children, all boys and 7 grandchildren.3 girls the oldest 22,20 and 3. 4 boys 17,12,10,an1 yr. I have been married 44 years, and I believe your creator, Dianna Phillips Hale is my cousin and was in my wedding.
Yes, Joyce, I am your bestest ever cousin. I have missed you, but have not known how to get in touch with for quite a while. Are you quilting now? It is my favorite pastime. Something I can do that creates beautiful and useful items to keep and enjoy or give away as gifts. You may contact me at email@example.com. We were home the first part of December, but with the time crunch to get back home on time, we didn't get to do much visiting.
Just wanted to pop in to say “hello” and introduce myself. I’m Linda Hubalek, fellow quilter and author from Kansas. Books about pioneer women are my specialty, with a cooking or a quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
My Trail of Thread historical fiction book series, written in the form of letters sent back home, describes my ancestors’ wagon trail journey and homesteading in Kansas. Each book mentions twelve old-time quilt patterns, and I put drawings of them in the back of the books.
So if you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts on my website. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook.
I have about a dozen quilts made by my great grandmother, (that we used all the time when I was a kid) so I’m into antique quilts and patterns. What kind of quilts and patterns do you like to work with?
