I am a retired kindergarten teacher of 32 years!! I love my time for quilting as I have 3 grandchildren who all love my quilts...(Well, their parents do as they are still very young. HA!) I have been sewing for over 50 years and quilting for at least 27+ of those years. All my daughter-in-laws and daughter are into the modern quilts and fabrics so this is fun for me and a little different from my traditional quilting. I am active in my church and enjoy fellowship with other women. I am a 3 year cancer survivor and life is good!! I live in beautiful Colorado and love it here. I have 3 children. My sons are the oldest and one of them lives with his family in Florida. They have two sons who are 3 1/2 years and the baby is 9 months. My other son lives about 15 minutes away, works with my husband, and has a little girl who is 2 years and another one on the way!! The grandkids are all so precious!! My daughter isn't married and is in Pharmacy School in Denver, Co. She is only about an hour away! I love having everyone so close. My sister sews and we enjoy sewing together however she lives in Kansas so we get together about 2 weeks every summer and just sew away. She is actually the one who got me interested in making quilts. A college friend of mine got me interested in virtual quilting bees and modern quilting.
