Quilting is my passion. The ability to be creative with colorful fabric just makes me smile. Of course, equally joyful is the love of my grandchildren. What could be better?
Food for thought.
Memory is a wonderful treasure chest for those who know how to pack it.

Office Christmas party today....
Let me back up by saying that my coworker went to Hawaii earlier this year and brought me back a Hawaiian applique book. A few months later she asked if I had made anything out of it yet. Well, she isn't a quilter and doesn't realize that we quilters collect books, patterns and magazines with things that we want to make....just not necessarily in this lifetime. Anyways, so that I wouldn't have to try and explain this to someone who probably wouldn't understand, I thought I would make one block and either make it into a wall hanging or a make it into a pillow and give it to her for Christmas. I had her pick out two fabrics that would match either her bedroom or her family room and from that I made her this Christmas present. She was so totally excited that she went through the whole office showing it off. I guess I did good...AND, she won't be asking me if I have made anything out of that book...which is a good thing.
I am known as Mimi by my four grandsons. They are 13, 11, 8 and 4 years old. They are what life is all about. I recently retired from my office job. Now I am just loving being a grandma who loves to quilt and is once again dabbling in knitting, I am a longarmer and an APQS retailer. I can see retirement being very busy!
