My husband, Terry, and I farm and ranch near Kindred, ND. I work part time in a Fargo clinic. We have 2 childred, a son and a daughter. Our son is married and has 4 children. The twins just turned 4, brother Izaak will be 3 in August and new baby sister, Sydney, was born in Feb. They live 8 miles from us and they are my joy. Our daughter is a retention coordinator at a Jr college just 40 miles from us. We are blessed.
I started quilting in 2003. I was working in oncology at the time and one of my patients was trying to finish 5 quilts for her children, before she died. I had always wanted to quilt but she was my inspiration, She was only in her early 40's, younger than myself. It was time for me to get going. I started by buying 2 books on quilting and then realized I needed patterns. I have not let my self purchase any recently. I have enough.....for now. I have my grandchildren one day a week but get several hours of sewing in every week.
