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

Hi Jan, just touching base.  How was the wedding in the pan Handel and was your quilt finished.  We are having a lovely spring, after a mild winter, I hope we don't pay for it with a poor summer. It's the weather situ all over the world, some say it's climate change, others say it's normal evolution, this happens, I don't know what to believe, one thing for sure we cannot change it, we do our bit with recycling that's all we can do.  Getting ready for our trip to New York and Pennsylvania,  I seem to gave lots to do until then, look forward to hearing your news. Ttfn Marianne

My sympathy on the broken ribs. I broke  3 in a horse accident 57 years ago and I still remember the misery. Glad you are safe.

"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
