About Me
I started quilting about 10 years ago when my Aunt Donna asked me to finish some quilts for her....18 of them! She taught me all she knew and I got started. Then she died and I am still working on those quilts but now it's become a passion and I keep getting off track and making my own quilts rather than working on hers. One of the quilts I haven't finished yet is a completely hand sewn queen sized top that she made me promise to finish it by hand quilting. I have attempted hand quilting on smaller projects and it just doesn't look good. I don't want to ruin the quilt. Other than quilting, I am a special education teacher and I love to scrapbook, stamp and cook. My husband owns a construction company and I do the books for that in my spare time. I have retirement all planned...quilting only!
Hobbies and Interests

My pets are awesome!
We have two canine friends. Kirby is a 15 year old Maltese who is King of the house and Jed is a 10 year old black lab who thinks he is a puppy.

I just checked in to find a new wallpaper and they wont work for me I've used them in the past and they were wonderful...I can feed my fabric addiction all day! I followed the directions but when I right click, I don't get the set as wallpaper option that the directions call for. Anyone have a trick?

Happy Birthday Colleen!  I hope you enjoy your special day.  It sounds like your days are very full.  Make time for yourself and your quilting.  It is sew rewarding and don't be such a critic about your handwork.
