End of the school year! Yikes!
I am a school administrator and that is where I spend most of my time. When I am not herding all of the munchkins at our school, I love to be in the saddle, riding the trails in Colorado. I hale from California where I lived for 55 years. My husband, young adult daughter, and I moved to Colorado Springs in 2008. I was terribly homesick for my friends and the land that I knew so well and I spent a lot of time wasting away wishing I was back home. At some point a shift occurs somewhere deep inside. I stopped taking a plane flight to Cali feeling like I was going home and started visiting, returning to the Rocky Mountains with that feeling of coming home. I decided to start getting to know this place where I live, exploring and writing about the places I find, the things about Colorado that I discover. If you visit my blog aliveinColorado@wordpress.com, you will read about a variety of things that are occupying my mind. Of course, quilting is one of those things.
I am an adventurous quilter. When I saw the Gees Bend Quilters show at the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco, I went back to see it three times. Then, when it came to Denver, I went again. I love the primitive look and I am nuts about bold colors. I started looking for a different kind of guild and found this one. Wow! Nobody could have fashioned a guild character and mission that is closer to my heart and needs. I AM HERE!
