I was born and raised mostly in southern New Hampshire. I met a Texan up there, married him and moved to TX in 2002 and here I will stay. I have since divorced the Texan and am happily single.
I have always sewn... mostly clothes, household stuff, purses, etc. In 2004 I purchased a new sewing machine. Once I figured out all the bells and whistles I signed up for the Learn to Quilt class. Life got in the way for a while and I've only really been focused for the last few years on sewing and quilting. I have done more piecing than actual quilting of quilts. UFOs abound in my house! I like doing small projects... some useful, some decorative, ... I am not sure if it is from fear of the actual quilting process or the fact that since I work I have little time to sew and I like that gratification of the finished product. I have dabbled with raw edge applique, paper piecing, and English paper piecing. I am a certifiable fabric and notions junkie and just LOVE the vendor booths at quilt shows! Free motion quilting is next and once I've overcome my fear of ruining a quilt, maybe some of those UFOs will get finished!
