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!

I won Dakota Cabins award! Whew hew...

I was one of the winners of Dakota Cabin from Hettinger, ND awards.
I won the Poinsetta Pillow Kit that also included the book "Northern Batanical" with pattern in it and it arrived yesterday in the mail.

I have a few things to finish up and then will get it started, it is pictured on the right hand corner of the book. Very pretty.

I joined a Winter Block Swap on line and have my blocks ready to send. There are some really pretty blocks being done for this swap and am excited to see the ones I will get in return.

The 12- 12 1/2 Unfinished Winter Blocks
I really like the snowflake fabric that I used on these, mainly the white on white. It has been discontinued so am unable to get anymore of it. It sure is a pretty fabric though.
I am continuing working on my Farmers Wife Sampler Blocks. I need to get another battery for my camera so when do that I will get them posted. I also have Jen's barn blocks to get posted and pictures of so will get them up as soon as I get to town and get a battery.
