About Me

My photo
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!

They have been lots of fun to do too. I have another one to complete which is the Grandmpothers Flower Garden and am working on it. It is English paper pieced so it will be done shortly.
I also just registered to do a Winter Block Swap with my online group so need to decide on which block I want to do and whether I want to do 1 set or 2. hmmmmm...........
Better run get a quilt on the long arm makes for good thinking time.
Hope this finds all well and having a GREAT WEEK!
