I have worked for Connecting Threads in Customer Service for over 10 years. You wouldn't believe all the nice quilters I have met by phone. I also test and sew some of the patterns. I have been quilting for over 20 years, and, sewing way before that. Outside of work, I belong to 2 guilds, and a fiber arts group. I enjoy taking "new method" quilting classes locally or on-line. Presently, I am exploring the wonderful quilting world of embellishing, thread painting, and fiber arts. My next project could come from anywhere, i.e., batiks (my favorite), 30's, or civil war era. Too many projects , sew little time.
I have a wonderful husband, and 2 juniors - daughter in high school, and a son at WWU. We have 4 cows, 4 black dogs, some outdoor and 2 indoor kitties, about 70 blueberry bushes and a partridge in a pear. Well, that last one is not true, but we do have 2 goldfish in the cow water tank. Don't ask.

Just wanted to add my welcome to the Love of Art Quilts group. It's a great group to join because it gives you something else to do other than work on UFOs (like make more of the little buggers in the name of Art! lol) We have some great swaps. : )
I just posted my blog. It still does not look right but I left it any way. Could you tell me what I did wrong? In the "Posted by" line instead of my name it reads "me". How can I fix that in the future and have the "comment" at the end of the line? Thanks for your help.
