DH and I are empty nesters! We've been married for 44 years. Our two wonderful 'kids' are both married to great individuals. We have four grandsons and one granddaughter. This is one grandma who really loves & adores her grandchildren!
I am retired (after teaching elementary students for 34 years), so I have more time to spend with family (esp. grandchildren) & friends. I enjoy traveling. I like to read suspense/mystery books. I enjoy playing cards and other games (esp. Scrabble)! I LOVE chocolate and any homemade pie! Of course, I've never been known to turn down any kind of food! ;-)
Quilting is my passion (or addiction as my hubby calls it)! I love to do scrappy quilts. I am definitely a piecer since I do very little applique. Most of my quilts are machine quilted by myself (thanks to a friend who lets me use her long arm). Purple is my favorite color, but I love most any color way when it comes to quilting!
Hobbies and Interests

My pets are awesome!
I have a HUGE 8 year old Rottweiler/German Shepherd dog named Gus that we rescued when he was 2 years old.
Hi. Today I did my COVID test, yesterday was chemical stress test, That’s because on Monday at my pre-op physical it showed that I had A -fib. This week has been stressful to say the least. I just hope that Tuesday morning I’m in surgery. I’ll let you know.
Hi "lifeisgrand" What is your first name; it would be easier to call you that ;^) I'm in north-central Iowa too; in Northwood. Where are you located? Iowa Quilters is a good group so far; they are getting ready to participate in a group quilt activity.
