Brief Bio, News in Your Life, etc:
I live in the great State of Kansas!  I've lived here all my life and I love it.  I'm a mom of an only child, my adult-now son.    
I'm a Christian and I love the Lord! I am blessed daily and very grateful.
I have been sewing since I was about 14 years old and I enjoy it. Creating bags, pillows and other fun stuff are some of my favorites. And most recently, quilts. I began learning to quilt in June 2007 when I joined a friend at a local quilt shop for a block-of-the-month quilt group. My favorite part of sewing quilts is picking out the fabrics (the beginning of a quilt), and sewing on the binding, because that means I'm almost finished!  And I like to make up my own "patterns" or layouts of the quilts too.  I totally love vintage quilts and vintage-looking fabrics, like 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s reproductions.

My Favorite Crafts To Do: Sewing, quilting, refinishing furniture, embroidery, little bit of drawing.
Crafts I Want To Learn: Knitting; Scrabble tile pendants (got some supplies from a special swap partner, now need to try it out!) Collage sewing (like Teesha Moore style) and fabric coil bowls - I love these things. Also just getting started in some stamping-on fabric.
