I have lived in Las Vegas my entire life and really not crazy about it. Currently living with my 81 year old mother, younger brother, daughter, son-in-law, granddaughter, and grandson. I have 2 Siamese cats that besides my grandchildren, are the light of my life. Unemployed for almost 5 years, I started taking classes though University of Phoenix to get a BA in English. Thought maybe when the economy gets better, I would be ready to find a better job. Started quilting in '92 - made a couple of quilts by myself, then took a class. Only quilted for a couple of years - was filling all my time with cross stitch for awhile. Now my eyes are not exactly what they were, so I've decided to start quilting again.
