About Me
I live in the West of Ireland. I have always been interested in crafts. Over the past 30 years I have knitted, crocheted, cross stitched, painted, quilted and sewn whenever I've had the chance. Quilting is by far my favourite thing to do. I run a small craft business from home. I try to spend as much time as I can crafting and creating. It makes me HAPPY!!

Gosh, it really doesn't feel like 2and a half years since I last wrote here. Great to be back and seeing all the inspiring quilts from you all. Quilters really are the most artistic and innovative people I know. I'm going to spend the next half hour happily browsing through all your lovely galleries. Yippee!!

thank you, Agnes (that's my confirmation name!) My jacob's ladder is my daughter's and there are so many mistakes in it - thank goodness quilting takes you eye off of them, ha! I have gotten better about 1/4 in. seams. What fun to live in Ireland - I haven't even been out of the US, just about everyone in my family has, but not to Ireland.

Agnes--great to hear from you ! Thanks for the birthday wishes. I enjoyed your pictures--is that your little girl?? Precious! Your group looks like so much fun going on there. Aren't we blessed? I especially liked the starry quilt--although they were all beautiful. Talk to you later, Leather Needle Debbie

Agnes, good to hear from you. The school year is winding down here. Just about 4 wks left. I'm getting the binding sewn down on the second graduation quilt. I enjoy doing that and will be glad to see that project come to an end. I have a couple of quilts that I'd like to get sandwiched and basted in order to hand quilt.

Yesterday and today were cattle working days. Our son stayed home from school yesterday to help. The rounded up the yearlings and then sorted them by steer & heifer. The heifers were vaccinated. Today he saddled up as soon as he got home from school and they moved the steers a couple of miles to summer grass. It didn't take long and they had no problems. It was a great couple of days, weather-wise, to work cattle. My husband checked the fences this morning and for the part of the afternoon before our son got home from school. My dad (75 yrs old) still rides and likes to help with the livestock work.

I am scheduled for a badly needed haircut in the morning. The lawn needed mown today, so I feel pretty gritty and dirty. It is good exercise, though. The walking and pushing is good for me.

Our daughter in college is headed to London & Edinburgh with the college for a "study abroad" program for 2 wks in May. She is pretty excited, but a little apprehensive, too. She's hardly been anywhere - even here in the states! This will really stretch her. Wish she could detour to Ireland.

I enjoyed hearing about your little guy and the fabric basket. My niece (12 years old) likes to sort through my scraps and IRON them. She loves to iron fabric. Too funny. After she visits (and before I start pawing through them again) I have the most well-pressed fabric bits around.

Have a good day.

Oh, I have to add another comment since I just noticed where you live - I LOVE Galway!!! I visited there, gosh, almost 10 years ago now! I'm so jealous of where you live, you lucky lady! :)

Hi Agnes,

Thank you for your welcome. I've added some photo's. Your quilts are beautiful! Now I am working on a play quilt for my youngest daughter, Nina. She is born with a brain injury and when it's finished, she can play outside.
Have a nice day.
