Let me introduce myself, neighbor
I am new to the group that Marlene has started to help us get all those unfinished projects done. She is over at http://stitchinbythelake.blogspot.com/ Be sure and stop by. I have already found her to be a wonderful neighbor.
I am a semi-retired nurse. I was also a homeschool mom. I have been sewing since I was 9 when my great Aunt Thelma encouraged me to try sewing for my dolls and then myself. I made my first dress for myself when I was 10. It was just a shift but I remember it and wore it. I made my first quilt out of flannel when I was 14. I made it for my baby sister who was born on my 14th birthday. Off and on I have been quilting ever since.
Today I love to quilt most any style. I prefer to design my own blocks and embroidery patterns. I love to hand quilt and also free motion. Both are quite addicting in their own way.
My three children are grown and I am an enthusiastic gramma. My Dh and I will celebrate our 40th anniversary this summer as well.
Well enough about me, have a wonderful day playing with fabric scraps, I am going to...
