I live in Cold Lake, Alberta in the summer and head for the palm trees of Yuma, Arizona in the winter. Have 2 great kids. Son is a senior officer in the Canadian Navy and daughter is a realtor in Philadelphia. I have 3 grandsons and 4 great grandchildren. Also have my 16 year old Yorkie - Mitzi (She is now in doggie heaven). Married 50 years to Andy and we have travelled all over the world. Andy is retired Air Force and I am ex-Air Force and what a life! Have been quilting for several years now and even won lots of ribbons. My favorite thing to work on is applique.
