I am a stay-at-home mother of one angel baby and two furry Austrailian Shepherd 'kids'. I discovered my passion for creating things when I was 6 years old and made a Christmas stocking for my mom. All my life I"ve watched as my mother would take skeins of yarn and turn them into sweaters, blankets, and socks. I also watched her take stacks of crazy fabric and turn it into a wonderful piece of quilted art; never fully understanding how it was possible to have such vision and creativity! Over the years I've many different creative outlets including sewing, clothing, fabric arts (fabric dying and hand felting), beading, stamping, scrapbooking, and finally quilt making. While I've known how to sew for several decades now, until recently I had yet to make a usable quilt. Now that I have my first full size quilt (well it's a baby quilt) completed, I'm ready to make more and see what other folks are making! I love the new modern fabrics and designs, so this group is very appealing to me. I'm looking forward to meeting and sewing with everyone.
