About Me

I live in the Black Hills of South Dakota with my husband Bill, 3 sons, 2 dogs,, 2 horses-now 1, bottle calves and Chicks. I love to Quilt. I enjoy Horses,Gardening, Flowers, Archery, Camping, Fishing, Bottle Calves and all things with animals. I started sewing when I was 8 for 4-H, and have sewed off and on since. I discovered how fun quilting was over 7 years ago. I still sew on a Kenmore that was a graduation gift in 1981. I have a New Kenmore 385.19, and a Viking 400, a Singer Treadle, a Featherweight. and a Viking Ruby. In February 2010 I purchased an APQS Longarm , and Love everyone of them. I taught my 1st paper-piecing class, it was such a blast!

Deer Quilt

Good Morning,

Wow, One day I was fine and then the next I felt like I was hit head on... you name it chills, headache, no voice, and sore throat whew... It is definitely on the mend now.Thank Goodness!
Hope this finds that everyone enjoyed their Easter Holiday. We had a very nice and relaxing time.
Here is my deer quilt which I made for my brother in law. My mother did the quilting on it for me and I really like how it turned out. In fact I would love to find the deer panel again.
The pattern I used was from Autumn Visitors by Michelle Mara, South Seas Imports.
This morning I will be making a shop Hop down to Edgemont's "Nuts and Bolts" Fabric Shop for some So Fine Thread and of course my "new fabric" touching needs....LOL.
I love Earline's shop!
The twins are off school today so they will be joining me. I can hear "OH NO MOM DO WE HAVE TO?!!" NOT ANOTHER FABRIC STORE!!" already, hmm..... actually their not that bad, as long as we stop stop somewhere on their list of important to do's also. My plan this week is to get my barn blocks done, basket blocks, and maybe work on my Nevada Star, and will be picking up a couple of more quilts on Tuesday to quilt from the Quilt Guild. Thursday will be another Dr.'s appointment day, so will be keeping busy . Hope this finds all well and enjoying everything....
