Originally from Hammond Louisiana. Moved to Arlington Texas and lived there for two years...wonderful place with wonderful people. Then moved to the south Atlanta area where we have been for the last 17 years. All our family is still in Louisiana and we visit there often. I'm not yet retired but looking forward to it. I'm a nurse and work at a downtown Atlanta hospital. I work weekends and one day during the week so I have lots of time to quilt and enjoy by days off. I've been quilting for about 6 years and it has become an obsession. I also enjoy machine embroidery and love to combine the two crafts. I'm definitely a fabric-aholic and I love all fabrics. I've been married for 31 years and we have one daughter who is 22 and away at college.
