Marlene, over at Stitching by the Lake, has been getting to know her neighbors every Wednesday for the last month or so. It's fun getting to see new blogs. And today is my day. Thank you Marlene.
So here is a bit about myself.
I am a homeschooling Mommy of 4. My kids are 18, 14, 8 and 10months. Yes, a bit age gap there. Almost like starting over ;) LOL. We live on 6 acres in the mnts of California.
I started quilting 19 yrs ago, when I was pregnant with my first child. I knew that he was going to need a warm quilt, and I couldn't wait to try my hand at it. I still have that quilt, and laugh when I see all the mistakes I made. But it was loved, and kept my son warm. I have grown a lot since then. But really took off 5 yrs ago when I met up with a group of Ladies on a quilting forum. Jess then started her own forum, and I've been a member ever since. My home on the internet, The Quilt and Needle.
Because of Jess, her lovely mom Connie, and all the other wonderful gals. I have really grown and spread my wings.I started out testing patterns for both Jess and Connie (and still do for Jess) , and have been making my own tutorials for a few years now. You'll find them at the top of the screen, under my picture. I also have done tutorials on Sew we Quilt, you'll find a list of them on the upper left side column. My most popular tutorial is how to make a Lone Star block/quilt and it's companion, how to do set-in seams. Thank you so much to all the Pinterest users out there, who have my tutes pinned!!
And soon, once my little one isn't quite so needy, I am finally going to start marketing my own patterns. I love designing quilted items and bags.
Well thats enough about me. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoy reading my posts and the tutorials. I have had a more quiet year, this past year, but soon I'll get back into more sewing/blogging. And thanks again Marlene, this is fun!
Have a great day!
