About Me
DH and I are empty nesters! We've been married for 41 years. Our two wonderful 'kids' are both married to great individuals. We have four grandsons (1/12/10, 10/9/11, 12/10/13, & 6/26/14) and one granddaughter (11/10/11). This is one grandma who really loves & adores her grandchildren! Can you say "SPOIL"?! :)
I recently retired (after teaching elementary students for 34 years), so I have more time to spend with family (esp. grandchildren) & friends. I enjoy traveling. I like to read suspense/mystery books. I enjoy playing cards and other games (esp. Scrabble)! I LOVE chocolate and any homemade pie! Of course, I've never been known to turn down any kind of food! ;-)
Quilting is my passion (or addiction as my hubby calls it)! I love to do scrappy quilts. I am definitely a piecer since I do very little applique. Most of my quilts are machine quilted by my very talented friend who owns a long arm business, but I have been practicing my machine quilting this past year (thanks to a friend who lets me use her long arm). Purple is my favorite color, but I love most any color way when it comes to quilting!
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, general sewing, knitting
My pets are awesome!
one 17 year old calico cat named Maggie and a HUGE 4 year old Rottweiler/German Shepherd dog named Gus

Hi "lifeisgrand" What is your first name; it would be easier to call you that ;^) I'm in north-central Iowa too; in Northwood. Where are you located? Iowa Quilters is a good group so far; they are getting ready to participate in a group quilt activity.
