My sons all derby in the summer, so I go and watch them smash up cars for a afternoon. I love watching my grandsons play football on Friday and Monday nights. I enjoy going to auctions and of course quilt shops. Who can pass up a bargain??? Not Me.. I am the Vice President of my churches Ladies Auxilliary. I am in my sewing room 24/7. I get several things made throughout the winter. I enter my quilts in the county fairs and sometimes enter one in the Iowa State Fair.

Hello Betty, just saw your notice about getting to play with your new toy.  Can I ask what your new toy is?  Love the photos of your bags and quilts.  For only quilting for 2 years, you've got alot done.  Way to go.
