Profile Information

About Me
A Christian ranch wife of 32 years (and counting) in southwestern Nebraska, I'm also a mother of two children (30 year old daughter; 28 year old son), both married - and now grandma to three grandsons.

I operated a medical transcription business from my home office for 20 years. I'm a hand quilter and a very poor machine quilter. A long-arm machine would be a dream to own.

Music, working alongside my husband, most types of hand work, and reading are some of my favorite things to do. I'm a simple girl who is very content to just stay at home. The earthy smells of rain, my husband's aftershave, sweaty horses, line-dried sheets, and newborn babies are favorites.

As a traditional quilter who likes antique quilts, I love the stories quilts tell. Making quilts, heirloom or utility, to pass on to family, friends and kids as an expression of my love is something I enjoy.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique, hand quilting, embroidery, general sewing, other, general crafts

Hello Jan,  I'm sorry I haven't been in touch for some time, but life has been very busy.  We went to Pennsylvania earlier in the year.  We had a wonderful time, a very busy tiring but wonderful week in New York,  we were staying very central, just off Times Square, in the middle of the theatre district.  We went to all the major attractions, what an amazing city, then off to Pennsylvania for 2 weeks.  That was another fab experience, staying with rotarians in different parts of Pennsylvania,  it was amazing,  from the spare life of the Armish community to the opulence of New York  we had a lot to remember, we met some interesting amazing people during our stay.  We were home for a few months then we room all the family to France to celebrate our big wedding anniversary, it was truly wonderful.  We hired a huge villa, it was so luxourious all the young ones enjoyed the pool etc the weather was hot, oh we did enjoy being together and the villa was so large we all of us had our own rooms and bathrooms so we all had our own space, that's important, there was 10 of us.  Now just getting revved up for the Christmas celebrations, I'm off to Edinburgh next week for a few days to see a friend I haven't seen  for over 15 years, we will have a great catchup.  As you can imagine, not too mug stitching has been done, hope to change that though.  Well enough of me, I look forward to hearing g from you m what do you do for Christmas.  Looking forward to hearing from you.  Bye Marianne Hill UK

Thanks for this info Jan.  I will see if I have that block in my Block Base program for EQ7 since those are Barbara Brackman blocks.

"Quilting is my passion--the thing I do that is entirely an expression of who I am." Joana Simmers

"How could we ever get through all that life has to offer without being able to sit in a quiet spot and take a few stitches. It makes the rest bearable because out of the melee of life something beautiful is created. Something in our hands that we can see and something in our hearts that we can't see but is nevertheless very real." Jodi Cramer
