Welcome to my little hidey spot! 🙂
Take a look around, take yer shoes off, and relax for a bit.
As long as you like: Coffee, Quilty Things, God, cats, dogs, kids, some crafty things, gardening, comfort food recipes and the occaisional ramblings and musings of a self-admitted fabricaholic/fabric-fondler, then you’ve come to the right place. However, if you don’t like any of these things, then you’ll want to high-tail it on out of here before you go any farther – consider yourself warned 🙂 .
The rest of y’all, come on in and sit a spell…..
As far as info about me goes…. In a nutshell: I am a self-taught quilter. My grandma started teaching me how to sew (clothes), do hand embroidery and crochet at the age of three. She never was into quilting, so when that bug bit I scoured the internet for all the info I could find on the subject, and picked the brains of any quilter I came across (few and far between around here in those days). I’ve made well over 100 quilts at this time, and like any self-respecting quilter ( LOL – that’s a joke – just to be clear, and not offend “the serious people” ) I have yet to actually make a quilt for myself, and have a few (ahem…) UFO’s in hiding. I am an anomalie in my area (location) due to the fact I am well under the age of 50, and don’t fit (by any means) the commonly held “Granny Quilter” stereotype – and by the Grace of God Almighty, I never will….
I used to work in the field of Animal Rescue, so there are a few ” small furry children ” running around my house who had severe trauma or health issues when they came into my life, and into my heart. This is their “Forever Home” and trust me – IT IS THEIR HOME!!! I’m just here for my opposable thumbs, and soft quilty things 🙂 .
I have been Blessed to have always been surrounded by great cooks, who were always willing to share their recipes, and knowledge, with me. I have been acussed – more than once – of making people “overly fluffy” due to my cooking, and subsequent inability to cook ANYTHING in small portions. I just blame it on my Mamaw, she’s the one who taught me how to cook – and I don’t think she even owned measuring spoons or cups!!
So, that gives you a little background on me. If you want to know more, then you’ll have to stick around and see what pops up on this site, or in my blog itself. In the mean time – play, have fun, and remember – it’s not your business what anyone else thinks about you, that’s their problem, not yours 🙂 . Have a great day!!!
