Just wanted to take a couple of minutes to wish a Happy Mother's Day to all of my fellow bloggers and quilters. And of course to my own mom, who has been a wonderful friend as well as mother to me!
Being a mother has been one of the best parts of my life! Thank you to Keith and Bobbie-Jo for all of the wonderful mom moments over the years! And now I am blessed with two more, Keith's wife Jacquelyn and Bee's boyfriend, Matt. Love you all so much!
I'm a quilter, love everything about this great craft. I've been quilting since I was just a little girl, blessed to have both of my grandmothers influence and teaching to start me on my way. The first quilt that I remember working on was a Grandmother's Flower Garden. My maternal grandmother, Fanny, helped me get started, I was around 7 or 8 years old. I still have that work, never did finish the quilt though. My maternal grandmother, Dot, often had a quilt in the frame when I was a little girl. I spent many wonderful hours playing under that quilt frame, in my world of imagination. And I was so blessed as I grew a bit older to have her teach me the fine art of hand quilting. Today, I still love hand work, but also love the convenience of today's modern techniques.
I have been blessed beyond measure this past year to be able to open my own quilt shop, I've been dreaming of this for 20 years and finally decided now was the time to stop dreaming and start doing! I hope you'll follow along with me on the journey!
