Welcome! I'm excited!! As a matter of fact, "EXCITEMENT" is my word of choice for 2019. It's my goal to make every moment of every day count.
I can never decide if I'm a writer first or a quilter first. Even when I'm sewing, my quilts are full of text and tell stories and I always have a quilt (or ten or twelve...) in progress. I have to sew daily to be happy, but I'm thrilled when I can write daily as well. I post "micro mini memoirs" on Facebook, and how fun is that! No editing, no rejection slips, ha ha!! I've written enough for a book and that's my next goal.
I write, but I will always be an artist, a quilter, a sewer of old things into new. I like to work with worn things I buy in thrift shops, the kind of places you go into with rubber gloves and tongs. I have such a heart for the women who came before me who worked so hard to find a few moments to make beautiful things for their families; a crocheted doily, a hanky with tatted edges, an embroidered dresser scarf, or a stack of quilt blocks they never got around to setting together. These are the fragments I gather and find great joy in giving new life. As you look at the quilts in the galleries, you will spot the vintage pieces.
I have lecture and workshop dates open - take a look at the offerings. Enjoy your visit, and let me hear from you!
